Mission and Core Values
OUR MISSION: GLADLY SPENDING OUR LIVES TO SEE THE GOSPEL TRANSFORM THE NEXT GENERATION.
Before He ascended to Heaven, Jesus commanded His disciples to go and make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:18-20). This is the mission of His church, therefore, it is our mission at Liberty as well. We also believe God has given us a specific calling that fits our local context here in Chelsea. We say that our mission as a church is to glorify God and make disciples by gladly spending our lives to see the Gospel transform the next generation.
This is our guiding compass as a church. It's why we are here. Everyone spends their life on something! Why not spend it intentionally by investing all that we are and all that we have into God's Kingdom work? We encourage you to come join us. Spend your life on something that matters forever!
OUR CORE VALUES
TRUTH not Lies – We love God's Word enough to believe it, speak it, and live it.
2 Timothy 3:16-17: All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
GENEROSITY not Greed – We love the mission enough to give sacrificially.
2 Corinthians 9:6-8: The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.
RESCUE not Neglect – We love others enough not to look away.
Luke 10:25-37 (The story of the Good Samaritan): "...Which of these three, do you think, proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell among the robbers?" He said, "The one who showed him mercy." And Jesus said to him, "You go, and do likewise."
TOGETHER not Alone – We love one another enough to live and serve side-by-side.
Philippians 1:27: Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel...
TRANSFORM not Conform – We love Jesus enough to be changed by Him.
Romans 12:2: Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
