Mission and Values
Caring for people and connecting them to Christ.
The Great Commission is the driving force behind every evangelical church.
18 Jesus came near and said to them, “All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations,baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
A mission statement reflects each church’s unique God given way of fulfilling the Great Commission. As we worked through the process of selecting a mission statement, we wanted to capture the uniqueness of our church and hold firm to the call of Jesus to reach people. We felt that the word “care” expressed the heart of who we are as a church. Jersey has a history of caring for each other and the world around us. We wanted to include the word care to remind us to remain true to the call of the Great Commission.
The values below are the motivational components of our church. Our values are a set of unchanging beliefs or principles that guide and govern our decisions.
