What We Value
The mission of Missio Dei Church is to reach people with Jesus’ good news (gospel), train them as His church (community), and send His church into the world to make his kingdom visible in everyday life (mission).
The Gospel is the ‘good news’ that through Christ’s death and resurrection, God’s kingdom has entered history to save humans and to renew the world. The gospel is that God himself has come to rescue and restore creation in and through the life and work of Jesus Christ on our behalf. This is the message and mission of the local church. The Gospel is both the invitation and the means of discipleship. The declaring (proclamation) and displaying (practice) of the Gospel drives everything we do.
The Gospel creates a new humanity, rescuing people from individualism and isolation, and bringing people together as a foreshadowing of God’s eternal kingdom. Living in community is therefore essential and vital to any follower of Jesus the Christ.
Because Christ was sent into the world for a mission, the Gospel calls all followers of Christ to be on mission. We believe that our calling as followers of Christ is to serve our world, thus embodying the mission and message of Jesus Christ.
