Our Vision & Values
Christ Church operates out of our Core Purpose, Vision & Values. Everything we do (be it events, new ministries, etc.) is guided by these principles.
Vision – The Kingdom Project
Our vision is to advance the Good News of God’s Kingdom in Kansas City and the world by planting missional initiatives, ministering to the poor, and bringing the healing love of Jesus to all people.
There are 5 goals to Phase 1 of the Vision:
1. Create and implement a discipleship system
2. Develop a leadership pipeline
3. Eliminate the debt
4. Establish a clear identity and visible presence in our community
5. Reach the next generations
Core Purpose – At the heart of our Kingdom work
- Passionately Seek Unchurched People
We are outwardly focused, reaching out to find and connect people to Jesus Christ and His church. We meet people where they are and shepherd them to be disciples of Jesus Christ, participating in God’s transformation of lives.
- Missionary Community of Small Groups
We are a welcoming, open, and deeply relational community of mutual care, an extended family of small groups loving one another as Christ loves us.
- Experiencing God Through Worship
We seek to glorify the living God in worship through the Word and Sacraments, prayer, exceptional music, and the arts.
We hear and obey God’s direction with thanksgiving. We bathe in and surround our life together in prayer.
We seek to share and embody the unchanging Gospel in culturally relevant ways to a changing world.
- Mobilize People to Serve and Lead
We are all called by God into service and leadership, to grow into Christian maturity, and to strengthen this Christian community in order to fulfill the Great Commission.
- Pass on the Blessing
We give away ourselves and our resources to usher people into God’s kingdom. We are committed to the biblical tithe.
- Biblical and Classic Anglican Christianity
We are formed and directed by the Word of God and enriched by our Anglican heritage.
