The mission of First Mission Christ Temple Church of God in Christ is to multiply mature believers in worship, and evangelism as we walk in obedience to the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19,20) in cooperation of the whole body of Christ.
The Vision of First Mission is:
- To reach out to our community with the message of Jesus Christ;
- To assist our congregation in sharing the love of Christ;
- To see growth in our homes, adults, children and teenagers
- To rescue the perishing and care for the dying.
God is calling First Mission to become a church who will worship Him with all our being – spirit, soul and body. We are to live our lives with worship, giving praise continually unto the Lord. Our church is to be noted for our love and our praise celebration, our knowledge of the Word of God and our dedication to the kingdom of God. We are to learn what it means to love God with all our might, mind and means.
God is calling First Mission to become a learning community of believers who give thanks to maturing and maximizing the gifts and calling of each member of this church. We commit ourselves to equipping the saints for their work of ministry and to teach them a lifestyle of learning that we may all grow in the knowledge of God and in effectiveness in ministry.
God is calling First Mission to become an army of witnesses who will live to share the good news. Our whole lifestyle is to be build around the compassion to witness. We are to witness as we travel, as we study, as we work and as we play. We are to choose our vocations, our homes, our dress, our language and our friends in order to better witness to our generation.
God is calling First Mission to become a unique instrument of evangelism, which will penetrate many un-reached people of this city with gospel. We are to gear up like an invading army to go into the strongholds of the enemy with our lifestyle of worship, learning and witnessing in order to spread the word of God and the reign of King Jesus.
