MISSION AND VISION

Mission Statement

The mission of Falls Road African Methodist Episcopal Church is to minister to the spiritual, intellectual, physical, emotional and environmental needs of all people by preaching and spreading the liberating gospel of Jesus through word and action; to establish disciples for the Kingdom of God through worship, evangelism and discipleship.

Vision Statement

Our church is committed to being:

 

We can fulfill our destiny adhering to the following seven points:

Evangelize

God calls us to be witnesses in this world.  There is a need for the church to spread the good news of Jesus Christ in all places.  We are called to touch the lives of hurting people so they can receive the love that only Christ can offer.

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
Matthew 28:19-20

Educate

As it is stated, “education is power.”  As the body of Christ, the church must educate its members in order for them to fulfill their full potential in Christ.

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
2 Timothy 2:15

Empower

The church cannot afford to be looked upon as a weak institution.  God has given us the power and authority to conquer in every area of our lives.

But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
Acts 1:8

Equip

The church must provide the needed resources to equip the body of Christ so that the members can fulfill their destiny.  This can be accomplished through regular attendance in worship and bible study, workshops, retreats, revivals, etc.

And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.
Ephesians 4:11-13

Economize

As with Adam, God has called us to continue to be faithful stewards.  Stewardship is achieved through tithing of time, talent and finances.  In addition to a tithing program, we must also acquire addition funding and resources to help to establish ministry.

Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
Luke 6:38

Expand

We are called to expand our faith and resources for the growth of the Kingdom.  Hence we have to do greater missionary works and outreach to build relationships in the community and abroad.

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
John 14:12

Embrace

We must establish nurturing relationships and provide support systems for each other to grow in the body of Christ.

As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.
Galatians 6:10
