At Freedom Community Church, we believe that a great commitment to the Great Commission (Matthew 28:16-20) will build a great church. With this in mind, we have adopted the following mission statement for our congregation:
…To lovingly persuade the World
To become committed followers of Jesus Christ
And equip them to do the same.
Our desire is to become and remain a healthy church. Therefore, we always actively seek the Holy Spirit’s direction and empowerment in all that we do in order that we might remain focused on our mission and purpose. In all our ministry endeavors, we seek to understand and implement God’s will.
We purpose to:
- Articulate a clear understanding of Who God is — three persons in one: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
- Teach the “whole counsel of God,” making it relevant for our time and culture without compromising its content or challenge. For we are “not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes….” (Romans 1:16)
- Emphasize a supernatural-reliance rather than a self-reliance.
- Demonstrate and create enthusiasm about being part of the Kingdom of God.
- Pray for God’s initiative and anticipate that God will indeed act.
- Encourage leaders to embrace change and become change agents under the Spirit’s direction and guidance.
- Grow spiritually and desire the fruit of the Spirit for every member.
- Equip the mature believer to engage in personal ministry and mission — to share his faith by profession and example, that others might hear and see, believe and be saved in Christ Jesus.
What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:31)
Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.
As the teaching pastor, Pastor Jim has a passion for carefully unpacking the truths of Scripture. He has served at Freedom Community Church since its beginning in 1998. He and his wife, Suzanne, have two grown children and seven grandchildren.
Freedom’s current Elder Team is made up of five couples. Together they provide a source of accountability for the pastor as well as shepherd and oversee the church family.
