We exist to glorify God by introducing all peoples to Jesus Christ and growing them up to love and worship Him. This is our unchanging mission. As we open our eyes to the Scriptures and to what is happening around the world, we see Jesus connecting people, growing people, serving people, and going to people. This is our unchanging discipleship strategy.
Our constant desire is to align our lives with Jesus and to be on mission with Him. But with this mission and discipleship strategy, where do we see Providence three years from now (through June 2020). Inspired by the promise that our faithful sowing can reap a harvest that glorifies God, we want to plant three good seeds in three good soils over the next three years here at Providence.
PLANTING OUR LIVES IN THE CHURCH
The church is God’s people through which He wants to accomplish His mission in the world. We desire to see our whole church body given to prayer, worship attendance, small group involvement, serving, and giving.
PLANTING THE GOSPEL IN OUR CITY
Our city is expanding with more and more people in need of truth, hope, and love. We desire to see 1,000 people in our church body lead someone to Christ and then begin to disciple them.
PLANTING CHURCHES IN THE WORLD
We desire to see 300–500 people go on a short-term mission trip annually, to plant 1–2 churches in heavily unchurched North American cities, and to partner with 10 North American and more than 30 international church planters.
