A Church’s Compass:
Mission, Vision, and Values

Where is your church going?

A clear understanding where a church is going is essential for forward movement. Proverbs 29:18 says, “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” Without a clear vision, a sense of direction and purpose, many times a church just spins its wheels; there’s no forward movement.

Some churches may have a clear vision, but they don’t achieve it because it doesn’t fit who they are. It isn’t in harmony with their identity, history, and values. And, some churches may have clear visions that are in harmony with who they are, but they don’t take the next step of establishing some objectives, then aligning their ministries with its vision focused on those objectives. As a result, the churches eventually atrophy.

Church Development is ready to help your church create a clear mission and vision that is in sync with your identity and values, which can result in clear objectives and alignment of ministry.
