Vision Statement of the Ark
A vision statement allows us to see where we are going before we get there. It is not necessarily a statement of reality but of aspiration, desire – a statement of what God has placed on our hearts for where He promises us we will eventually be!
We envision The Ark to be a place where the Good News of Jesus Christ, Who he is and what he has done for us in His birth, death and resurrection, is taught and preached eventually to thousands, even tens of thousands, including those who know Him but especially those who do not!
We envision the maturing of all our people into true disciples on fire for Jesus, becoming fully functioning followers of Christ through prayer, worship, study and fellowship. How glorious it will be the day we are all walking purposefully In His Steps!
We envision helping people to learn to discern their spiritual gifts that the Holy Spirit has given them and to give them opportunities to use these gifts in a way that allows them to be blessed and to be a blessing to those they are serving in the community while bringing them all into a closer relationship with God. We will create an army of servants for the Lord as we act out the Great Commandment!
We envision setting apart teams and small groups of leaders to continue to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ by sending them out to plant more churches and replicate the things that we have done properly. Hence, as we reach a maximum potential at The Ark, these new churches can continue to grow and reach more people for Jesus than we can alone!
