RCC exists to love God and to love others as Jesus did in order to make disciples of Him*.
*Being a disciple of Jesus means....
1. As God's children, we are called to love him above all, with all we have and all that we are. We are to live our lives in a way that glorifies him (Matthew 22:36-40).
2. We are called to love others around us - those inside but especially those outside the church. Neighbors are anyone who we cross paths with, who we can show love to (Matthew 22:36-40).
3. We are called to multiply our faith by sowing the seeds of faith in others and equipping one another to do so (Matthew 28:18-20).
What is our Vision to fulfill the mission?
To be dedicated to God (vs. 42, 47)
To be dedicated to the gospel and scripture (vs. 42)
To be dedicated to prayer (vs. 42)
To be dedicated to fellowship and one another (vs. 42, 44-46)
To be dedicated to multiplication/discipleship (vs. 47)
How do we live this out?
We gather on Sunday mornings to worship and praise God for what He has done, to challenge ourselves with God's Word and to pray for God's will to be done in and through RCC (God, scripture and prayer).
We gather in small groups in order to cultivate meaningful relationships grounded in Christ, to open up our lives to one another in order to care for one another and to help one another grow together into Christ. Small groups are a great way to get connected to RCC (God, prayer, fellowship).
We multiply our faith and make disciples of the next generation and those new to Christ through children's, youth, men's and women's ministry (gospel, fellowship, discipleship).
