Every church needs to have a purpose statement that answers the question, “why do we exist?” At These Are They, we filter every idea, program, and budget request through our purpose statement. If what we plan doesn’t help us meet our purpose, then we don’t do it.
Our purpose at These Are They is summarized in a single statement:
“To Rebuild Broken Lives with the life-giving message of Jesus that they might become fully devoted followers of Christ.”
Our statement of purpose is based on the words of Jesus:
“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” Luke 4:18-19
These Are They exists:
- To worship God with sincere expression.
- To share the Good News of Jesus with others.
- To connect with other believers in meaningful relationships.
- To prepare disciples to fulfill their purpose.
- To encourage leaders in their God-given destiny.
