The Vision Statement of Meadows
We envision a
church that is constantly growing for the glory of
God-growing in commitment, growing in maturity, growing in numbers; A
church that brings God's word and the power of his presence
to life through meaningful worship, and the life-application
teaching of His word; A church that
strategically and creatively reaches our new neighbors for Christ; A
church that develops people through all ages of life to
experience the intimate adventure of walking with God; A
church that supports and strengthens families; A
church that practices the love of Christ by caring for one
another deeply and praying for one another faithfully; A
church that operates like a mission force empowering its
members to go global with the gospel; A church
that inspires its members to discover and use their spiritual gifts
to engage in weekly, fruitful, and fulfilling ministry for the Lord;
A church that develops great stewards
for God who joyfully devote their tithe, their time, and their
talents to the Lord; A church that
empowers people to cross any barrier necessary to reach every person
possible with the transforming message of the gospel in the
marketplaces where they work, on the school campuses where they
learn, and in the neighborhoods where they live:
We envision a church after God's own heart!

To Know Christ and To Make Him Known
In response to the clear directive of Matthew 28:18-20 we resolve to cross any barrier necessary in reaching every person possible with the transforming gospel of Jesus Christ and to help all become fully devoted followers of our Savior and Lord.
