Our Vision

KINGDOM CONCEPT:
Our church exists to glorify God and make disciples by connecting our community for real relationship with God and with one another.

MISSIONAL MANDATE:
Cultivating community by removing the walls that divide us and building bridges that connect us as one human family, each person created in the image of God.

OUR MOTIVATION:

• Dignity & Worth of Each Individual
• Diversity
• Unity in Christ
• Service to Community
• Led by the Holy Spirit

Authentic Worship Vision:

We believe worship is God-centered, Christ-centered, and Wordcentered. Through the adoration of our Lord, our family of faith will experience individual and corporate transformation resulting in a willingness to respond in service and lifestyle modeled after Christ. As the Holy Spirit guides the expression of our worship, we will offer our collective prayers and praises in a manner that is progressive and creative while honoring the traditions of our past, embracing the diversity and giftedness of our people.

Biblical Literacy and Spiritual Growth Vision:

Through the use of spiritual disciplines and biblical studies, we will equip the people of God for every good work of ministry and
discipleship by promoting deepening personal relationships with Jesus Christ. A structured and purposeful setting for spiritual growth will be supported by a process of study and application to ensure that we never stop learning and growing toward a closer walk with God.

Caring Relationships Vision:

Through the development and nurturing of caring relationships in both our church family and the community, we will follow Christ’s example by living out His boundless love through our ministries and actions. We will be a congregation that carries one another’s burdens and values everyone.

Evangelism Vision:

Our passion is to share the Gospel. We are committed to equipping disciples to engage all people individually and with coordinated efforts as a church body. We will build relationships with people where they are – on our campus, in our community and throughout the world with the intent to lead them to a loving relationship with Jesus Christ. Evangelism is the central theme in all that we do.

Outward Service Vision:

We believe God calls the church to be a constant reminder of what is good and true. Led by the Holy Spirit, we seek to respond to the needs God places before us locally and globally using resources wisely with servants who are passionate, caring and equipped. We will embrace and live out Christ’s commandment to love our neighbor as well as we love ourselves.

Members of First Baptist Church Huntersville will covenant to accept and embrace our purpose, mission and vision by serving faithfully using our spiritual gifts, loving each other and promoting church unity as Christ commands, supporting the church financially through tithing, by worshiping and attending together, sharing the gospel, and praying for one another.
