Mission & Vision

Go therefore and make disciples...

The Mission

In order to fulfill what Jesus said in Matthew 28:19, "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations..." and learning from the missional church example from Paul in 1 Corinthians 9:19-23, our mission at Living Waters Christian Fellowship is to be a resource to each individual so that we all personally win someone to Christ, add that person to the body in relationship with other Christians, mentor that person into Christian Maturity and motivate those we mentor in fulfilling their purpose in life. 

The Vision

Living Waters is a place to connect:
  • With Jesus relationally - Finding and developing a life-changing, Spirit-led personal relationship with Jesus as Savior.
  • With Christ's Family - Finding a place to belong, develop relationships, and get involved in serving others.
  • With God’s Message - Finding instruction and encouragement in God’s Word [the Bible] for daily godly living.
  • With An Eternal Mission - Finding, by the equipping of the Holy Spirit, the passion to reach into our communities and affect lives for Jesus Christ.
