Restoration Church’s Mission Statement

It was once said that in order to get where you want to be, you must know where you are heading. Although I don’t know who said this, I am confident they were right. Any person or organization must have this nailed down if they are to stay true to who they are and the task they are trying to accomplish.

The same is true for a church, for our church, Restoration Church in Port Orange.

This week I’d like to briefly share what Restoration’s Mission Statement is: “To restore people to God and each other by making Disciples of Christ”. Simple enough to remember, but powerful enough to change lives.

Our mission statement is taken from the Great Commandments. When Jesus was asked what the most important aspect of the Hebrew Law was, he mentioned two things. The first was to love God with all that you are, and the second was to love your neighbor as yourself. He then went on to say that the whole law rests on these two truths.

As I think about Restoration Church I have some very specific hopes. I am praying and believing God is going to do some incredible things through the team He has set apart to plant the new church. The greatest of which will be to see people who are far from God begin to love God in ways they never imagined possible.

In the same way, we also pray and hope that the newfound love people have for God would radically change the way we love the people God has placed in our paths. We hope to raise a church body that is as concerned (and at times more concerned) with the needs of those around us.

I’m pretty sure you can find that in the Bible ☺.

So, what do you think?

  1. I really am coming to believe that growing…and sending…and planting….are all ways we are supposed to be living as a local church. Christ Community Church’s heloing to grow and send you all will be a biblical act of obedience that will please God, and, as a byproduct, be a source of blessing and strength for us that remain as well. Sure, I expect to see great things for Restoration Church, but I am also stoked to see what God will do here, at Christ Community, for it’s willingness to trust in Him in this endeavor.
