Our Vision

The Bible tells us in 1 Peter 4:10 that the grace of God is many-sided. Every local church has a specific God given purpose to fulfill within the scope of the Great Commission given to the Church by Jesus Christ. “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone.” (Mark 16:15 NLT)
 
Our vision is to teach people: how to live by faith in God and be guided by Him in order to prepare them to use their God given gifts to fulfill their specific calling.
 
Our mission is to be a place of love and miracles: we desire to help people realize that God wants them to live better and be more than they may have ever thought possible, that He wants every person to know and experience His love, goodness, forgiveness, favor, and power.
 
Our purpose is to repair and prepare: repairing damaged lives by showing people that salvation through Jesus Christ applies to every area of their lives (with an emphasis on healing for the physical body), then preparing them to share with others the peace, joy and freedom they have found in Jesus.
 
Our assignment is Richmond and the surrounding region: our vision is to reach our community with the Good News of Jesus Christ and to train and send out laborers to do the same throughout Virginia by establishing churches and reaching other communities.
