Welcome to Space Coast Assembly of God.

Space Coast Assembly of God Mission and Vision

 

Mission Statement:  “Pursuing God’s Presence and Purposes"

  

Our Mission

"The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim

good news to the poor.  He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the

prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to

proclaim the year of the Lord's favor."  (Luke 4:18-19 NIV)

“Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it." 

(1 Corinthians 12:27 NIV)

“. . . Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior.” 

(Ephesians 5:23b, NIV)

“As God's co-workers we urge you not to receive God's grace in vain.” 

(2 Corinthians 6:1 NIV)

 

The Bible uses the analogy of the head and the body to represent the

relationship between Jesus and the true Church, the corporate reality of those

who walk in relationship with Him.  A body only functions properly to fulfill

its purpose as it follows the direction and intentions of the head.

As a local expression of the Body of Christ in our community, God has called

us to be co-workers with Jesus in the fulfillment of His mission as stated in

Luke 4:18-19. 

 

His mission is our mission!

 

Our Vision

The purpose of Space Coast Assembly of God is to apply the specific aspects

of Jesus’ mission.  Our vision goes upward (our relationship with God),

outward (our relationship with our community), and inward (relationships

within our church).

 

Upward—”The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me”

· Making the presence of God our central focus and highest goal,

   expressed practically and passionately in our worship.  Where the

   presence of God is, there is fullness of joy (Psalms 16:11) and freedom

   from all that binds (2 Corinthians 3:17). 

· Approaching every service as a strategic opportunity to corporately

   encounter God, desiring the Holy Spirit to move and direct according

   to His will and purposes.

· Continually seeking and relying upon the enabling power of the Holy

   Spirit, which is the only means by which we can successfully join Jesus

   in the fulfillment of His mission.

· Understanding that anointing is biblically used to illustrate the reality

   of being set apart for God’s purposes, we submit to the working of the

   Holy Spirit in our lives, relying upon His power by which we are

   enabled to live in a way that is pleasing to God (Hebrews 11:6,

   Galatians 5:16-26, Romans 8:1-14).

 

Outward and Inward—“To proclaim good news to the poor. . . to proclaim

freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the

oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”

· Outward

* To show the love of God to those in our community by obeying

   the direction of the Holy Spirit in applying strategies that truly

   address their spiritual and physical needs.

* In response to the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20), to

   facilitate local evangelism by presenting the unchanging Gospel

   to the people of our community through relevant events and

   targeted outreaches, inviting them to trust in what  Jesus did for

   them on the cross as the only means by which they can have a

   personal relationship with God and walk in the reality of eternal

   life (John 3:16, 14:6, and 17:3).

* To answer the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20) by

   supporting missions around the world both prayerfully and

   financially, as well as participating in missions trips according to

   God’s timing, provision, and purposes.

· Inward

* To facilitate the fulfillment of God’s purposes in and through

   our fellowship by the application of the teaching and preaching

   of clear, biblically accurate doctrine, relevantly applied by the

   Holy Spirit to the situations of daily life.

* To implement effective methods of visitor follow-up, providing

   the means by which visitors can go beyond attendance and

   connect within our fellowship on a relational level.

* To implement effective discipleship strategies by which new

   believers are given the biblical tools by which they grow and

   mature in their relationships with God.

* To follow the Holy Spirit’s direction in applying the ministry

   gifts for the strengthening, maturing, and unifying of our

   fellowship as part of the Body of Christ (Ephesians 4:11-16).

* To provide practical means by which each believer in our

   fellowship can identify the gifts and aptitudes that God has

   given to him or her and apply those given talents in ministry

   areas in which the given believer can join God in what He is

   doing in such a time as this.

* To continually follow the leading of the Holy Spirit concerning

   how we can expand our ministries to target the various ages and

   social groups represented within our fellowship, minimizing the

   possibility of anyone “falling through the cracks.”

* To practically teach the reality of the baptism in the Holy Spirit

   and the gifts of the Spirit, encouraging every believer to seek the

   baptism in the Holy Spirit and to encourage the increased

   operation of the gifts of the Spirit.

* To apply the model of the early Church in Acts 2:42-47 by

   providing a variety of opportunities for fellowship for the

   further development of relationships within the fellowship

   whereby we increasingly demonstrate the love for each other

   that identifies us as Jesus’ disciples (John 13:35).

* To demonstrate integrity, accountability, and effective

   stewardship in every area of the finances of our fellowship.
