At Restoration our mission in to join God in the restoration of my life, our church, and our city. Throughout the liturgical year we will emphasize each part of our mission in turn to focus the Restoration family on the work of God in the life of his people.
Every person was made to know and love God and we know him most deeply and fully through worship. As we come to him, he saves, heals, and delivers us and we are transformed to be like Jesus. We call each person to join in God’s work of restoring his or her life through worshipping with the Church and daily personal devotion that leads us to know him more fully and be made whole.
“And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.” 2 Corinthians 3:18
The Church is imperfect and yet we are committed to love each other because Jesus died to save his people, his holy Church. We are committed to honest community and welcome everyone to a relationship marked by acceptance, discipleship, and service. We call our church family to join in God’s work of restoring our Church by committing to relationships that model Christ’s self sacrificial love and faithfulness.
“By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:35
Our mission is to seek God’s best for every person in our community as we participate in his mission to restore everything he has created. We ask for open eyes to see the needs of our neighborhood and the world as we extend the hospitality and healing of Jesus to all people. We call everyone to join in God’s work of restoring our city by practicing hospitality in our homes, meeting the needs of those in great need, and taking the good news of Jesus to the nations.
“But seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare.” Jeremiah 29:7
