2018 Vision

GOOD SHEPHERD BAPTIST CHURCH – THE COMPASSIONATE and CHRIST-CENTERED CHURCH IN 2018

Christ is the recognized Head of our church, and His communicated Word, the Bible, is our authority and guide.  With His Spirit inside us, enabling us…we seek to practice a daily dependence on Him to do what is right, according to His will.

John 15:5 – “I am the Vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.”

As we abide, we will look and act “Different” than the world, perhaps even than other complacent Christians who may be caught up in wilderness wanderings.  By revived spirit, persistent prayer, God-priority and discipline, God will lead us to what He intends for us as a church.

  1. Seek- Abide- Pray- Revive. We need healthy souls to pour out to others.  Corporately, in prayer, worship, Bible study, revival.
  2. Compassionate, Hospitable. Inside the church walls and in the community/to the world, we minister all that God has given us so He can fill us again.  We will create opportunities where others can experience Christ with us and others (Outreach, Family Focus, 4th Sunday meal).
  3. Christ’s Good News Shared and Celebrated. We will learn the Gospel, participate and serve, use our gifts, express family, and witness so others can be a part.
