Our Mission:

 

Richardson East Church of Christ: Sharing Christ. Loving others. Changing lives.

 

 

We demonstrate our mission through our Core Values:

 

We…

            Share – “We boldly tell the story of Jesus Christ and how He has changed us.”

                                Mission Focus:  Sharing Christ.

Consider:  The woman at the well (John 4:28-30; 39-42)

 

            Care – “We passionately care for others like Christ does – putting their needs first.”

                                Mission Focus:  Loving others.

Consider:  The Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37)

 

            Belong – “We belong to each other and work best in faithful community.”

                                Mission Focus:  Loving others.

Consider:  The early church (Acts 2:42-47)

 

            Worship – “We live every part of our lives as a sacrificial gift reflecting the One True God.”

                                Mission Focus:  Changing lives.

Consider:  Barnabas (Acts 4:36-37; 11:22-24; 13:2-3)

 

            Grow – “We keep moving to deeper faith so we can participate more in God’s mission.”

                                Mission Focus:  Changing lives.

Consider:  Peter (Matthew 4:18-20; 14:28-31; 16:13-18; Acts 2:14-41)
