WHAT WE’RE ALL ABOUT 

mission | vision | core values
It’s not supposed
to be this way.
Have you ever felt that about the world?
About your life?  So have we, and we believe God feels the same.  We believe that the world as it is now is not how God intended it to be.  Sin has fractured the beauty of God’s world and brought darkness into every facet of creation.
But it doesn’t have
to stay this way.
Through His death and resurrection, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, made a way for humanity to be reconciled to God and for the world to be healed of its brokenness.  The full restoration will be completed when Jesus returns, but in the meantime, He’s called His people to partner with Him in building His Kingdom in powerful ways.

MISSION

Our MISSION is what we’re here to do.  It’s how we believe God is leading us to pursue His vision for our church and our world.

outpostChurch exists to drive back the darkness by

helping people flourish for the glory of God.

Our VISION is a clear mental picture of the future we see by faith.   It’s what we believe will happen as God works through us.

The VISION of outpostChurch is

become outposts of the Kingdom of God.
 
 
2) To restore and improve
