Arbor Heights Community Church
To receive and participate in the mission of Jesus to reconcile, heal and transform to the glory of God.
Our mission consists of both receiving Jesus work in our lives and joining Him as He seeks to reconcile people back to a relationship with God, heal their hearts and bodies and help them become all God desires. We are a community of “in-process” people who continually discover ways we fall short in our lives, yet pursue and follow a God who, by His grace, changes and transforms us from the inside out. Because of His unconditional love for us, in the midst of our failures and sin, we are passionate to participate with Jesus as He seeks to lavish His heart bending love on a lost world.
Christ-like disciples growing in head, heart and hands through everyday gospel living.
First, we envision a people who are not converts of Jesus, but full-time followers of Jesus. Men and women who are sold out for God’s gospel and mission and see their faith infecting, and affecting, every part of their lives.
Secondly, we envision a people who, as a byproduct of the Holy Spirit’s work in their lives, are consistently growing into the heart and habits of Christ. They are experiencing an ever-increasing love for God with their mind, heart and hands.
Third, we envision a people who submit every moment of their day to Jesus, not just Sunday mornings. Jesus is not someone we add onto our existing lives, but the very reason for them. We want more of Him, not less, in our workplaces, homes, finances, marriages, families, neighborhoods and cities.
Lastly, we envision a people founded on, grounded in, shaped by and propelled by, the gospel. We want the gospel to define everything we are and everything we do. We desire people who believe gospel, think gospel, speak gospel and act gospel, because Jesus is that good and that worth it.
As you get familiar with who we are as a church, there are some distinctives that define our vision and mission.
BIBLICAL BELIEFS AND TEACHING
We strongly believe the Bible is God’s Word and is meant first to show us who God is, and secondly, how human beings were designed to flourish. Our commitment to teach the truth of the Bible is unwavering.
LIFESTYLES OF EVANGELISM
We want everyone at AHCC to be equipped to share their faith in both word and deed with the people God has placed around them.
MOBILIZED TO SERVE
We value providing opportunities to display Christ to our communities by meeting physical, emotional and spiritual needs.
AHCC preaches messages that are accessible and relevant for every person of every age at every step of their walk with Christ. Our style seeks to equip you to navigate and influence a post-Christian culture.
CULTURE OF DISCIPLESHIP
A disciple is a follower of Jesus Christ who lives in biblical community and is committed to becoming more like Him through obeying, serving and sharing Jesus. Our desire is that each AHCC member would become a disciple who makes other disciples.
