Your mission and vision statements are central to your community’s life. If you are crafting your statements at present, a vision statement generally speaks to your church’s long-term and big-picture goals, while the mission often speaks of the day-to-day activity taking place to fulfill the vision. Your vision and mission might look similar to our example below.

Our Vision is:

to make disciples of all people, beginning in our community and reaching out to the ends of the earth.

Our Mission is:

to make disciples by worshipping the Triune God, enjoying regular fellowship with brothers and sisters in Christ, sharing the good news of the Gospel, and reaching out to a hurting world.
