Our Mission and Vision
Our goal as a local church body is to help people become passionate, selfless followers of Christ. In order to become a fully devoted Christ-follower, we encourage everyone to adopt three priorities into daily life: encountering God, growing with others, and impacting people.
When we gather on Sunday as a congregation, our primary goal is to help you encounter God through songs of worship, through prayer, and through the teaching of God’s Word. For us to grow, we must also encounter God consistently throughout the week. Therefore, we want to help you experience the reality of the living God in small groups, in your family gatherings, and in your personal relationship with the Lord.
Growing with Others
We are committed to providing the resources and opportunities to help you become a passionate, selfless follower of Christ. Put simply, we want to help you obey God’s two greatest commands: to love Him with all of your heart, soul and strength and to love others as yourself (Matthew 22:37-40). Individual growth is severely limited, however, if we are not in community. We need each other for comfort, encouragement and exhortation, and Colonial provides various venues for you to grow with others such as short-term studies, ongoing communities and one-on-one mentoring. Since unhealthy relationships hinder our individual and corporate growth, we specifically address overcoming obstacles so that we may enjoy healthy relationships.
As our love for God increases, our desire to impact others with the gospel and good works increases as well. Therefore, we provide various opportunities for the congregation to impact others within Colonial, within the community and around the globe. We also provide support and training so that you can increasingly impact others where you live and work, or wherever God leads you.
