Our mission here at the Vancouver Church of Christ is to provide an environment where people can thrive and grow through Christ-centered community. Our community is a local expression of a global fellowship called the International Churches of Christ.
Here are the values that empower and guide the pursuit of our mission:
Community: We desire to share and experience the grace and love of God through Christ-centered community. (Acts 2:42-47)
Prayer: We rely on the Spirit through personal and corporate prayer in the conception, planning, and execution of all the dreams, ministries, plans, and activities of this church. (Matthew 6:9-13)
Biblical Teaching: We strive to humbly and graciously teach God’s authoritative Word with integrity so that seekers find Jesus and we ourselves grow and mature in Him. (2 Timothy 3:16)
Gifts-based Ministry: We seek to equip and empower those in our spiritual family to discover and use their divinely-given gifts to the glory of God. (Ephesians 4:11-13)
Discipling: We hold the conviction that God uses intentional, grace-filled, Christ-centered relationships to help us joyfully thrive and grow in Him. (Hebrews 10:24)
Mission: We actively embrace the Great Commission: Jesus’ charge to make disciples of all nations, baptize them in the name of the Father, Son, and Spirit, and teach them to obey all of his commands. (Matthew 28:16-20)
