Vision 1. Qualitative -- “Making Disciples” To see 100% of our body in the process of being conformed to the image of Jesus through:
COMMUNION: Embracing a deeper intimacy with God by connecting through prayer, worship, the Scriptures, etc..
COMMUNITY: Extending Christ’s love to all our relationships as we are increasingly transformed into His character.
COMMISSION: Engaging the mission of Christ by sacrificially using our Spirit- giftedness, resources, prayers, and time.
2. Quantitative -- “Of All Nations” To do our part in reaching every man, woman, and child in:
AIKEN COUNTY (166,000 people) “Jerusalem”
by mobilizing every person within our influence to think and act like a missionary living on purpose through missional communities that exist to reach EACH man, woman, and child.

by planting 5 additional satellite churches and blessing other planters by providing training, coaching, and support.
OUR REGION (SC = 4.5 million people) “Judea”
by partnering with existing churches to resource and re-purpose them for the mission of reaching their given geography.
by facilitating church planting in the 4 largest metro regions of GA with a goal of planting 80 churches.

Values In dependence on the Holy Spirit, we commit to building a body with the following values:
Intimacy with God is our first priority. (Everything else flows from our intimacy with Him.)
There is only "One Church" in the Savannah River Area. (The other churches in this city are our companions, not our competitors.)
God uses multiple gifts to lead and equip His body. (Jesus is the head of the church and His vision is our “senior pastor.”)
Reaching a city will not happen through addition; it will take multiplication. (We’re committed to the multiplication of disciples, missional communities, and churches.)
To reach every man, woman, and child in the city; you will need to mobilize every man, woman, and child in the church. (Every member must take responsibility for the vision God has placed in our hearts.)
