Every organization needs a purpose!
At The Gathering Place, we strive to remain mission centered on every idea, program, and budget request. If what we plan doesn’t help us meet our purpose, then we don’t do it. Our purpose at The Gathering Place Church is summarized in a single statement:
“To lead people into a personal and growing relationship with Jesus Christ.”
Our goal is to leverage every resource that we have to help people connect with God, and then grow in their faith.
Our mission is based on the commands of Jesus as found in Matthew 22:36-40 and Matthew 28:18-20
Jesus replied: “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart…soul…and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” (Matthew 22:36-40)
He said to them, “Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”. (Matthew 28:18-20)
