The vision of our church (a present tense statement of what we believe God dreams for us to be) is:
Remember that a vision statement is so large and ideal that it is obvious that it is not yet a reality, but it will one day be an accurate description of us. It is, as best as we can understand it, God's Dream for HVFBC.
What do you know about our church when you read our vision statement?
A purpose statement differs from a vision statement in that it describes priorities and strategy for reaching the vision.
"Highland Village First Baptist Church is a diverse group of people
seeking to celebrate the presence of God, communicate Jesus' love,
search God's Word for life's direction, and share together the pains
and joys of life."
So, HVFBC exists to:
o ____________ God's Presence (Worship)
o ____________ Jesus' Love (Evangelism)
o ____________ God's Word (Discipleship)
o ____________ the Pains & Joys of Life (Ministry)
I. WE EXIST TO CELEBRATE GOD'S PRESENCE
II. WE EXIST TO COMMUNICATE JESUS' LOVE
III. WE EXIST TO SEARCH GOD'S WORD
IV. WE EXIST TO SHARE TOGETHER LIFE'S PAINS AND JOYS
