1. To be faithful to the Great Commission of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ by being a significant and visible witness for Christ at Living Word Bible Fellowship Church; by having a stronger evangelistic emphasis and outreach; by enlarging our vision for an involvement in world evangelism; and by sending forth laborers, by God’s direction and enabling, and standing with them in prayer and in financial support (Matthew 28: 18-20).
2. To be a caring church, with an openness among the church family and the regular and continual demonstration of genuine love and concern and intercessory prayer for one another (1 Corinthians 13:1-7).
3. To be a praying church with regular, systematic and effectual private, family and corporate worship, praise, thanksgiving and intercessory prayer.
4. To disciple and train leaders for service for Christ, so that there will be a competent and capable staff of Christ-centered and biblically knowledgeable teachers and counselors as well as a large percentage of regular attenders of the church involved in some form of ministry or service for Christ (Colossians 1:28).
