Love God and love others as we make disciples.
(Matt 22:37-39 | Matt 28:18-20 | Luke 10:25-37)

“For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost...” - Luke 19:10
We seek to understand and meet the needs of our community (our context) as we live out the transformational call of Jesus to “go and make disciples”, and as lives are transformed for Christ, so too our community and beyond. Living with a missionary mentality right were you are!
“And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” – Hebrews 10:24-25
Jesus didn’t do life alone. He brought His disciples everywhere. If the Son of God didn’t do life alone, why would we? We need others who will challenge us and encourage us to take next steps. So at Impact we seek to create a relaxed atmosphere that fosters authentic community. We will be a church that is safe for people to get involved in without being perfect, but strong enough to keep people centered on the way God has called us to live.
“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Any lasting impact to be made for Christ in our community will come from God. We will be passionately dependent on God for His direction, as we are conduits of His grace in our community.
Joining The Service Industry
“For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Mark 10:45
Want to become more like Jesus? Focus more on serving others than on being served. The best way to improve our marriages, make a difference in our workplaces and discover our spiritual gifts is to serve those around us.
“Come follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Matthew 4:19
We believe healthy things reproduce healthy things. Believers reproduce believers, leaders reproduce leaders, and churches reproduce churches.
Living The Blessed Life
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” – John 3:16
It is a spiritual impossibility for us to out give God, because He has already given us everything. So we live open handed and bring back to Him the first fruits of all He has blessed us with.
In order to fulfill the mission of Impact Church and see the vision of our community come to fruition, we must start with a model that allows our values to come through in our actions, and for Impact Community Church that starts with GROW, SHARE, SERVE. One will not be able to fully participate in the mission and vision of Impact Community Church without fully engaging in all three areas. A part time journey with Christ is not what we are called to, we are about total life transformation.
