THE CHURCH DOESN'T HAVE A MISSION.
THE MISSION HAS A CHURCH.
At Sun Valley Church, we aim to be mission-minded. In an age where “missions” can mean just about anything, we understand that we’ve been saved into the Church for God’s mission.
What is God’s mission for His Church?
To glorify God by making disciples of all the peoples of the world by baptizing and teaching them to live as worshiping, obedient Christ-followers. (Matt 28:18-20; Mark 16:15)
Where does the Church carry out the mission?
Everywhere in the world, including where we are right now. (Acts 1:8)
Who in the Church should carry out the mission?
Everyone who has received God’s mercy through Christ. (1 Peter 2:9)
Why should we join in the mission?
Out of appreciation for the unconditional love we’ve received from God (John 3:16; 2 Cor 5:14), the desire to be obedient to Jesus’s command to go (John 20:21), out of sincere concern for those who are lost without Christ (2 Cor 5:20), and for the immeasurable joy that comes from seeing someone turn to Christ for salvation (Luke 15:8-10).
People from Sun Valley are carrying out the mission in areas ranging from Bible translation and church planting, to inner-city youth ministry and sharing the Gospel with co-workers on the job. Check out our missions pages (under the "Missions" tab at the top) for more information on how God is using Sun Valley Church and her Gospel partners!
