Vision + Values
Our vision is to be that place where people are drawn to God for a lifetime — experiencing consistent spiritual, numerical and organizational growth.
The psalmist David opened his collection of songs with a description of the strength of a tree planted by the waters of a river. His description implies that the tree was strong because of the roots it was able to thrust deep into the ground as a result of its location. The Sanctuary is passionate about helping people to become disciples like the tree of Psalm 1 — deeply rooted and stronger than the next storm.
Doctrine matters. It matters what you believe and it matters that you know what God’s Word says with respect to the issues of our day. Even more important, it matters what the Bible says about being saved and God’s plan of salvation. The Sanctuary is commited to being doctrinally sound.
The 1st Century church (which we strive to imitate) was a church absolutely dependent upon the followship of the saints. The earliest strategy for growth is found in Acts chapter 2. They went daily from house to house “breaking bread.” That’s a picture of fellowship with each other and fellowship with God as their purpose was to engage in evangelism and worship.
