Vision: Disciples Made, Matured, Multiplied
When we look at what the church is called to be, we look to who Jesus is and who He called His disciples to be. At Connect, we believe in Jesus as our Savior, Lord, and Rabbi, and that means that our lives are about following Jesus and living out the way of Jesus. With this in mind, the vision of Connect Church is about Disciples being Made, Matured, and Multiplied, and how this happens is through people being connected to Jesus. Following Jesus as His disciple means we love to spend time with Jesus. This time spent with Jesus causes us to become like Jesus. This means we are not a community that has it all figured out nor are we by any means perfect. But we do life in community to become who we were made to be and who the Holy Spirit is making us to be—like Jesus. Therefore, at Connect, three core values drive what we do:
- BE LOVE: Jesus is love. Therefore, like Jesus, we will treat people with dignity, sit beside people to develop connectivity, and lay down our lives for others as an act of generosity.
- BE LIFE: Jesus is life. Therefore, we will live fully by spending time with Jesus, as Jesus spent time with the Father. We do this at Connect through the spiritual disciplines and through worship experiences.
- BE LIGHT: Jesus is light. Therefore, we want to live purposefully for the sake of others so that the light of Jesus is seen in Pella and throughout the world.
This is our prayer at Connect Church and would love to have you inquire more and join us as a community that longs to follow Jesus.
