The Importance of Mission Statements for Churches
Mission statements have become a huge deal in churches today. It identifies who they are and what they are about. I posted an ad in our local paper that had great response, it simply read:
"The Church of Christ in Rocksprings is a non-denominational family of believers who love God and are striving to fullfil our purpose in Him."
It helped identifying who we were and what we are about. Do you think mission statements are important for a church? Do they help in identifying the church to the community and seekers? Does your church have a mission statement, if so what is it? Have you seen mission statements being sucessful? How. If no, why not? What would Jesus' mission statement for His Church be? Do mission statements change in churches? If so how and why?
