South Bay Church Vision & Mission Expanded

We are passionate about building the New Testament church. Matthew 6:33 says, “If we seek first His kingdom, all these other things shall be added.” As we live this mission, His kingdom will be built.

CARE

Building the New Testament church that loves all people with compassion, so we are healed. Gal. 6:2 ~ Bear one another’s burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ. I Peter 5:7~Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. Matt. 22:37-39 ~ And He said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.” This is the great and foremost commandment. The second is like it, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

EQUIP

Building the New Testament church by investing in and developing people to be like Jesus; a people who love Him and love others with His Word through the power and filling of the Holy Spirit. Eph. 4:11-12 ~ And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ. John 7:38~He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water. John 8:32~ And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. 2 Tim. 2:2 ~ The things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, entrust these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also. Romans 12:4-6 ~ For just as we have many members in one body and all the members do not have the same function, so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. Since we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, each of us is to exercise them accordingly…

SEND

Building the New Testament church with Jesus followers who reach across the street and around the world. Matt. 28:19-20 ~ Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. I Peter 4:10~As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. Acts 6:3 ~ Therefore, brethren, select from among you seven men of good reputation, full of the Spirit and of wisdom, whom we may put in charge of this task.
