Purpose Statement(Why We Exist)
"Village Bible Church glorifies God by making disciples who become growing and serving followers of Jesus Christ."
WHO WE ARE AND WHERE WE ARE GOING
Do you remember the dialogue between the Cheshire Cat and Alice in Alice in Wonderland?
Alice: Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?
The Cat: That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.
Alice: I don't much care where.
The Cat: Then it doesn't much matter which way you go.
Alice: …so long as I get somewhere.
The Cat: Oh, you're sure to do that, if only you walk long enough.
Here at Village Bible Church we do care about where we are going.
“Where are we going and why?” Not bad questions for a church to ask are they? The pace of life seems to increase every year, but we must make sure that we are not only moving, but moving in the right direction. Village Bible Church has crafted a “VBC ROADMAP” that captures many of the essential missional priorities of what we believe God has called us to be and to do.
Please notice the over-riding purpose statement, along with the core values and goal of heading towards being a maturing follower of Jesus. The heart of this movement is in our ministry process of REACH – GROW – EQUIP – SEND.
It may only look like a diagram with words at first blush, but trust me – the longer you are involved at Village Bible Church the more it will make sense, and give you an understanding of our ‘spiritual DNA.’ Every church is as unique as each individual’s thumbprint. We believe this is the print God has outlined for us “at such a time as this” (Esther 4: 14b). We invite you to join us on the journey!
