Our Message

Jesus and His Church is for everyone, everywhere.

Our Mission

To REACH our city with the gospel and to INFLUENCE present and future generations to be disciples of Christ.

Our Vision

Our vision is a fire that burns brightly in us. We see our church of the future as a church of significant influence in our city and across the nation. We see it as a church so large in size and so strong in heart that no structure can contain it, nor adversity withhold it. We see people from every race and background, of every generation and age, calling our church ‘home’ and its people their ‘family’. We see it extending its boundaries across the city, reaching people from the north to the south, and the east to the west. We see the church bringing the love of Christ to many nations of the world, declaring that Jesus is for everyone.  We see the church with an extensive network of well-resourced ministries that bring hope and support to those in need. We see the church add value to every strata of life in our communities. This is our vision….this is Nations Church.
