The Road to 2020: The Vision & Mission of Granite CC
At Granite Community Church we exist to be a relevant expression of the Family of God who love one another and our communities with the Gospel love of Jesus Christ.
Children of God who love one another as Christ loves us
Our identity is as the Children of God (1 John 3:1). God has adopted us into his family because of his great, lavish and extravagant love for us. And this love will inform the way we are to love one another as Family.
An Orchestra that is in tune with God and each other
Jesus taught us the importance of "remaining in the Vine" if we want to grow into the likeness of Christ (John 15). When we are connected and in tune with God - through daily rhythms and corporate worship - we will truly be able to understand and grasp our identity in Christ. This in turn will enable us to love one another, serve one another, and remain in tune and unified with one another. We want to use our gifts and talents, passions and dreams to encourage (1 Corinthians 12), serve and build up the Church and the Kingdom of God (Ephesians 4)
A Beehive that gathers for worship and scatters in mission
We desire to be a Church Family that is committed to gathering together around the Word, prayer and eating together (Acts 2:42-47). We want to be committed to gather in large corporate groups for these activities and in our homes (Acts 2:46). We also want to be a community that scatters into our various communities for mission, relationship and service (Matthew 28:19-20).
A Rescue Squad that reaches our communities with the Good News of Jesus
We desire to take the good news of the Gospel into our local communities, our nation and our world. We understand that we have been rescued by a loving God through the sacrifice of his son Jesus, and with hearts of gratitude we want to share this with others in the hope that they might find peace with God and forgiveness for their sins (Romans 10:14-15). We want to bring justice and peace to the world as a acknowledgement of God's love in our lives and those that call on his name (Luke 4:18-21 & Isaiah 58).
