Mission & Vision
We're in the process of updating our statements about mission and vision. Keep in mind that what really matters is our heart and common understanding of what we're trying to become -- as individuals and as a group. Clever statements that get put up on walls and websites are easy to create, and hard to really live out. Here's how we are thinking of these things right now:
Our Mission - is given to us by Jesus himself: to go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything Jesus has commanded us (Matthew 16:19-20). We're seeking to do that here in the Chicago area.
Our Vision - is to bring change from the inside out, staring with ourselves, and flowing out to others ... As followers of Jesus Christ we bless our neighbors in Chicago and beyond by living out our faith and sharing the love of God. This love and blessing overflows through us as we engage in these core spiritual practices (this links to an article talking about these five spiritual practices).
