State of the church (Part 7 of 7): Mission Framework

 

Hopkins Community Church MISSION

Hopkins Community Church exists to connect people to Christ and Community

 

Hopkins Community Church VALUES

Absolute Truth

We affirm the supremacy of Christ, the centrality of the Gospel, and the absolute truth of scripture.

Living out our value of Absolute Truth is demonstrated by:

  • Endeavoring to glorify Christ in all we say and do;
  • Ensuring that all of our ministries, programs, and events are centered and rooted in Christ;
  • Upholding scripture as the sole source of absolute truth.

Holy Spirit Power

As individuals and as a church, we have a growing desire to be led by the Holy Spirit, and to experience the power of the Holy Spirit.

Living out our value of Holy Spirit Power is demonstrated by:

  • An ever-increasing desire to more deeply experience the power of the Holy Spirit;
  • Equipping people to grow in their ability to recognize and follow the Spirit’s leading;
  • Equipping people to grow in praying in accordance with the Holy Spirit’s leading.

Lifelong Growth

We are committed to cherishing and enfolding children and youth, and to discipling people of all ages, so that all might experience an increasingly full life in Christ.

Living out our value of Lifelong Growth is demonstrated by:

  • Making sure that every young person feels welcomed, valued, and able to connect with others;
  • Teaching and modeling for children and youth what a vibrant, healthy life in Christ entails;
  • Equipping, encouraging, and praying for all who connect with Hopkins Community Church.

Connecting in Community

We are a welcoming, accepting, compassionate church that strives for deep connection with Christ, with one another, and with the greater Hopkins community.

Living out our value of Connecting in Community is demonstrated by:

  • Embracing our call to be ambassadors for Christ by sharing Christ’s love with words and actions.

Our measures tie to our values and reflect mission attainment:

Absolute Truth

I am firmly rooted and centered in Christ, above all else.

Scripture informs my faith and deeply influences how I live my life.

 

Holy Spirit Power

Prayer is a high priority, and in times of prayer, I feel closely connected to God.

I am increasingly tuned in to the Holy Spirit’s leading and am obedient to follow.

I have a solid grasp of my spiritual gifts and am actively using my gifts.

 

Lifelong Growth

Compared to a year ago, my faith has deepened and my fears have lessened.

I seek opportunities to study God’s Word and grow deeper in my relationship with God.

I seek opportunities to share my testimony of how I came to faith in Christ.

I seek opportunities to share with others what God is doing in my life now.

I actively seek opportunities to share the Gospel with people.

I actively serve in our church.

I seek opportunities to serve the broader Hopkins community.
