Mission & Vision

Why Another Church?

The Mission

The Gospel is the story of Jesus who stepped out of Heaven into a fallen world to redeem and reconcile broken people to Himself and also to one another. This is the Gospel. Jesus didn't die so that we could be sorry, He died so that we could be saved and live the life He intends for us to live. Why? Because He loves all people.

The Vison

The vision of Engage City Church is create a community of authentic believers and to witness a city transformed by the life changing reality of the gospel, as people come to know Jesus as their lord and savior.

Core Values: E.N.G.A.G.E.R.S.

E-“Empower” Our call as a church is to EMPOWER, which means  
we“make disciples” and “develop leaders.”-  Matthew 28:19-20 “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.”
N-“Notice” We make it a point to NOTICE what others look past.
- Matthew 9:36- “But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd.”
G-“Generous” We do not live fearfully based on our lack, but boldly
and GENEROUSLY based on God’s provision. As He gave, we give.
- John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

A-“Adapt” We ADAPT to the season, culture, or situation we are in.
- 1st Corinthians 9:22 “I have become all things to all men, that I might by all
means save some.”

G-“Genuine” People are looking to belong somewhere where people
are real. In a world full of fakes and counterfeits, our goal at Engage
is to be an authentic church.
- John 8:32 “And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

E-“Expect” We EXPECT more than others think is possible.
- Ephesians 3:20-21 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above
all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be
glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

R-“Risk” We RISK more than others think is wise.
- 2 Timothy 1:7 “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love
and of a sound mind.”

S-“Simple” We keep it SIMPLE, but focused.
- Acts 4:12 "And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under
heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved." 

We Love

Jesus was motivated by love and moved with compassion. The call for His followers is to live out the Gospel in everything we do. When we live out the Gospel that is motivated by love we will bring lasting change to our marriages and families, our neighborhoods and communities, and our classrooms and careers. We live to bring the life-changing power of the Gospel to every area of our lives. Living the Gospel is not a call to a strategy or a new system; it’s a call back to living out the heartbeat of Christ as the only hope for this world. 

We Lock

When we lock arms with other followers of Christ this is called discipleship. Some of Jesus's last words to the disciples were “to teach others what they had learned from Him.” We will live this out as we pour our lives into people for the purpose of pointing them towards the reconciling power of the Gospel. We live in a world where the struggle is real, and the battle is on. How do we counter this? Through locking arms with real people, living real lives, following a real God who desires for His people to be discipled by walking in community with one another. 

We Lead

Jesus loved, and locked arms with His disciples, and transformed them through the power of the Gospel. He then released them to lead in the same way in the lives of others they would encounter along their journey. At Engage City Church, our desire is that every one of us will see themselves as empowered by God to lead in our homes, in our neighborhoods, in our schools, in our places of work, in the gym, in the store, and any other place we find ourselves. The message of the Gospel began to make an impact when His disciples took the lead and lived the empowered lives they were called to live. Therefore, it is our prayer at Engage that followers of Christ will become discontent with living the status quo life, and begin leading the way. This is only possible when we come to the end of ourselves, and begin to allow the power of the Holy Spirit to guide us as we go about our daily life.
