APC-Mission, Values, Vision
“I am the vine, you are the branches; if you abide in me you will bear much fruit.” (John 15:5)
In response to the grace of God, our mission is to grow a community of fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ to produce abundant spiritual fruit for the Kingdom of God.
In order to achieve our mission we:
- Gather in fellowship as a church
- Glorify God in worship and in spiritual practices
- Gain understanding in what it means to be fully-devoted followers of Jesus Christ
- Give of our time, money and talents
- Go out to the world in mission to serve the Lord
At APC, we do this through:
- Authentic hospitality
- A humble, servant heart
- A creative, entrepreneurial spirit
- An intergenerational relevance
- Respect for our history
Our vision is to be a dynamic, inter-generational community of faith where an ever increasing number of people from diverse cultural backgrounds are called to fully embrace a relationship with Jesus Christ.
With God as our foundation, and with respect and appreciation for our rich history, we aspire to provide excellent, relevant ministries with the goal of becoming a teaching church, for us and others.
This would happen through energetic worship that engages the senses, bringing us into the presence of God;
building relationships with and lifting the burdens of the poor in our midst and around the world;
finding opportunities for spiritual growth regardless of where we are on the spiritual journey;
using all of our God-given gifts to build the Kingdom;
and embracing the joy and practice of generosity including time, talents and money in every aspect of life.
