Our Mission

FOR HENDERSONVILLE TO BE

Strengthened by the POWER of God’s Spirit
and directed by the TRUTH of God’s Word!
 
PERSONAL AND CORPORATE DISCIPLESHIP!
Apprenticing under Jesus is learning the teachings, practices, and lifestyle of Jesus. It is engrafting His practices and teaching into our daily lives and holding ourselves accountable to Him.
 
When we say that we are apprenticing under Jesus, we are striving for something greater than what the world calls Christianity, today. We are striving to be like Him! It is more than belief. It is more than a style of church. It is a life style change that is both personal and communal.
 
EVANGLISM
The mission of Jesus was very specific:  To seek and save the lost!  Jesus saw the multitudes that were sick, destitute, and lost and He was moved with compassion to heal them and teach them.
 
Jesus now transfers this declaration to us:
 
Matthew 9:36-37
When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”
 
WORSHIP
Revelations 4 describes to us a wonderful scene in heaven:  continuous worship!  You and I are created to worship:
 
Isaiah 43:21
“The people whom I formed for Myself Will declare My praise.
 
Worship is what God is seeking from His church:
 

JOHN 4:23-24

But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
 
Here are a few areas of focus to guide our praise and worship.
 
WORSHIP IS PREPARED:  Romans 12:1

 
WORSHIP IS EXPRESSIVE:  Psalm 150:1-6
 
WORSHIP IS SPIRITUAL:  2 CHRONICLES 5:11-14

 
TRUTH
Jesus, as well as the rest of the New Testament writers, spoke very strongly about TRUTH.
 
John 8:31-32
So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, “If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”
 
 
TRUTH IS IMPORTANT. We cannot afford the mindset of not knowing is ok. We cannot afford the mindset of anything goes: you believe what you want and I’ll believe what I want. ALL ROADS DO NOT LEAD TO HEAVEN. What we believe about God is important and it is important unto salvation.
 
 
WE MUST SEEK TRUTH!  2 Timothy 2:15
 
BECAUSE THIS TRUTH SAVES US:
Ephesians 1:13
1 Timothy 2:3-4
2 Thessalonians 2:13
John 8:32
Ephesians 4:22-24

 
Paul describes truth as the gospel (Death, Burial, And Resurrection of Jesus Christ)  1 Corinthians 15:3-8.  And this is the gospel he preached in Acts 19:1-6 
 
GIVING
The bible is full of promises for those that give.  We are a church that will allow God every opportunity for those promises to come true!  There are so many ways we can give:  returning our tithes, giving offerings, and giving faith promise (missions) offerings.  As a church we support foreign missions efforts (supporting those that are starting churches aboard), home missions efforts (supporting new churches in the U.S.A), local charities such as I Am, Hendersonville Rescue Mission, and First Contact.
