The Vancouver Church of Christ is a group of Jesus followers who try to locally glorify God in all we do while being connected to larger, worldwide fellowship known as the International Church of Christ. We desire that each and every person who enters into our community experiences the love of Jesus, which is why we make it our mission to thrive and grow through Christ-centered community.
Here are the values that empower and guide our ministry to our city:
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)
