Vision 2020+: Love Lifts
God has called us to be a body of Believers that is rooted in love. The motivation behind this calling is simple: love lifts. Because God is love, there is no goal that cannot be achieved, and no obstacle that cannot be overcome with love.
The vision, Love Lifts, charges us to manifest this truth in three distinct ways:
- Experiencing the love of Christ;
- Expressing the love of Christ within our congregation; and,
- Extending the love of Christ to our community.
Love Lifts will mobilize the entire Heritage family to build the Kingdom under 4 core tenets:
- Raising disciples who are faithful stewards;
- Becoming a unified body that daily demonstrates the love of Christ to one another;
- Developing our next generation of Bold Believers; and,
- Building community through small groups.
