MISSION & VISION

OUR VALUES

 

Creativity – Genesis 1:1

“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” 
 
We value creativity as a gift from God to us. Human beings are made in the Image of God, and we see that from the beginning our God is creative and instructs us to also be creative. We believe creativity should be celebrated and cultivated, and that our God get’s the glory from the work of our hands.

Evangelism – Matthew 28:19?

“Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.”
 
As Christians we value every person, as does God. We value the command to reveal and expose Christ to the unsaved. At “Sweet” Home, we value being the “fragrance of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.” 2 Corinthians 2:15. Evangelism, our primary cause, along with discipleship (Christian education) is at the core of our ministry.

Social Transformation – Luke 4:18-19?

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed,to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”
 
We value Social Transformation as a tangible way to see the Kingdom of God here on earth. We believe God’s justice should be our justice, and that injustice can be alleviated here on earth. Jesus did not just proclaim a spiritual salvation, but a physical deliverance from injustice we face while here on this side of heaven.

The Word – 2 Timothy 2:15

“Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.”
 
We value and esteem the Bible as the foundation for maintaining spiritual health and its position as the central, focal point of every sermon and teaching. Expository preaching, its meaning and implications, is the soul food for our spiritual strength. We value Sweet Home as the place where the all sufficient and infallible Gospel of Jesus Christ is preached to the power of salvation. Teaching is biblical, sin is condemned, and worship is Spirit-filled.

Worship – Psalm 100:1-2?

“Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth! Serve the LORD with gladness! Come into his presence with singing!” ?
 
We value worship as an expression of our thanks and adoration to God for being God. We believe that worship is more than singing songs. It is about giving allegiance to the God who loves us unconditionally. Romans 12:1 says, “Present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, because that is your “spiritual worship.”
