Our Church Vision
"Empowering Families, Inspiring Community Unity, and Enabling an Atmosphere of Spiritual Freedom and Perfect Praise"
The Church's Message For the Masses:
RESPONDING TO THE VISION:
"Vision is the source and hope of life. The greatest gift ever given to mankind is not the gift of sight, but the gift of vision. Sight is the function of the eyes; vision is the function of the heart."
Munroe, Myles. (2003). The Principles and Power of Vision. Keys to Achieving Personal and Corporate Destiny. Nassau, Bahamas: 236, 11.
Three Scriptures our Church is Founded on and Why:
Habakkuk 2:3 - 2nd Corinthians 3:17 - Jeremiah 31:3
For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie; though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.
Responding to the Vision in its Appointed Time; Hearing it Speak and Not Lie:
LEADERSHIP DEMANDS A CLEAR CUT LEVEL OF VISION.
Leadership is born out of guiding vision and passion to accomplish a noble task, and to inspire others to develop and release their potential, it derives its fulfillment from the success of others.
Munroe, Myles. (2003). The Principles and Power of Vision.
The Vision of
The Agape' Community Christian Church...
"Empowering Families, Inspiring Community Unity and to Enabling an Atmosphere of Spiritual Freedom & Perfect Praise."
*2nd Cor: 3-17
Where the spirit of the Lord is, there is Liberty.
Where Godâ€™s Spirit Rain, there is Freedom!
We need to understand that we were all called to freedom, only we are not called to misuse our freedom. Don't give an opportunity for the flesh, but through love we are to always serve one another. Galatians 5:13
God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and truth.
What Does Our Vision Mean?
Families are faced with many troubling issues today, such as problems with communication, high divorce rate and teen pregnancy and the increased level of school dropout rate and alcoholism, truly in these sad days and times that, if left without more optimistic options, the moral structure of family unity would be lost. The word of God deals affectively with restoring family unity and healing the moral fabric of the family structure. The Agape Community Christian Church (ACCC) believes in family restoration and healing. Our goal is to strengthen the weaknesses and restore whatever is lacking with in the family by using the word of God to not just improve but to also empower families to obtain the wholeness that they so desperately need.
Inspiring Community Unity:
It is the firm belief of The ACCC that the Church should not live or exist apart from the community. In-fact, the church should be the heartbeat of almost any and every neighborhood. That is why a great deal of our services, projects and social events are geared towards positively affecting our social surroundings. That's why our Choir, Fund raising projects and our outreach services are open to the public. The listed below services are also open and free to the public.
Food Pantry * Free Breakfast with the Neighborhood * Christmas Community Programs * Summer & Spring Programs & Thanks Giving Dinners * Other "Out Reach" Missions *
And last but not least, Our Family & Friends Day Program & our Annual Church Anniversariesserves as a conduit between church and Community youth and families in an effort to take part in celebrating the unique togetherness of God, families and community.
Enabling an Atmosphere of Spiritual Freedom & Perfect Praise:
While we know that there isn't a possible way to have prefect praise; nevertheless, we wonâ€™t let that stop us from trying to reach that level. Our goal is to be as Christ like as possible, to show Jesus from the time you enter our church sanctuary and from the time you exit our church doors. The Agape Community Christian Church (ACCC) is not your typical orthodox Christian church setting; on the contrary, we are quite untraditional in our praise and worship; for example, we have t-shirts that represent our choir robs; moreover, we don't require membership to take part in our choir practices and most of our church songs are made up. It is our heartwarming desire to create such a freedom of praise that it doesn't always have to be maintained with the same orthodox structure and traditions of past Christ centered establishments. As long as the spirit of God is alive and well, it creates a sense of wellbeing and brings with it-its own freedom.
*"Jeremiah 31:3 "
With love and kindness have I drawn thee."
We are all Members of One Body, under One God and with One Glorified Hope and that is to be More like Christ Jesus, in every aspect of our lives, to live in the presence of God and to reach and teach others to do the same.
I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me.
