We envision God transforming us by His Word and Spirit into the likeness of the risen Lord Jesus, so that we see as He sees and love as He loves, proclaiming Christ, making disciples, and renewing society in visionary gospel community. In this we rejoice, and offer all God has given back to Him in praise.
We want this transforming vision to become our reality because it is what God wants. God is the only one who can change hearts and He chooses to do so by His Spirit; we pray and hope to see Him doing this work on Credo Church.
We want to see as Jesus sees and love as Jesus loves. (Rom 12:1-2; John 17:26)
We want to proclaim Jesus as Lord. We believe that the knowledge of Jesus Christ and a personal relationship with him is to be shared all over the world. (1 Corinthians 2:2)
We want to make new disciples. We want to help people become joyful, passionate followers of Jesus Christ. (Matthew 28:18-20)
We want to renew society. When hearts are turned to Jesus, and when disciples of Jesus are made, society can be changed and renewed. (Luke 14:25-35)
We want to do all of this in “visionary Gospel community.” We need each other, and yet, we need to maintain a vision that keeps us moving beyond ourselves. (Hebrews 3:13; 1 John 2:10)
