THE CHURCH I SEE

In 2015, Pastor Clay asked God to show him the church that he would have him to lead. The characteristics, values, and goals revealed at that time have helped define who we are and what we do in this season of ministry.

I see a church where everyone matters. I see a church where the light of Jesus is reflected. I see a church where purpose is revealed. I see a church where God’s Kingdom dominates. I see a church that starts small but grows into something magnificent. I see a church that changes culture. I see a church that operates 24/7. I see a church where excellence is displayed. I see a church that is alive. I see a church that works together for God’s greatness. I see a church where kids develop into leaders and masterpieces. I see a church that attempts the different to reach all people. I see a church that is full of God’s kindness and hospitality. I see a church that rises to the top in the community. I see a church that builds on the work that Jesus has already done. I see a church where many dead stones become living stones to do something great. I see a church that the community revolves around. I see a church that encourages and speaks into the lives of all who pass through. I see a church that serves with heart. I see a church that walks with the Spirit and steps into opportunity. I see a church that represents a King. I see a church that shows people they are designed with a purpose. I see a church that functions like a Kingdom. I see a church that brings hope and healing to what it touches. I see a church where all people have a function and a purpose.
