Our vision is to be an open door to a life-changing grace.
We want everyone to experience God's unconditional welcome and radical hospitality through the good news of Jesus. But this welcome is only the beginning. As we experience more of God's grace, God changes our lives. In God's grace, we are invited as we are, but in God's grace, we don't stay as we are. We want to see this happen to every single one of us. This is our vision for Open Door.
We want to be a gospel communities sent in the everyday.
We want to gather and grow around the gospel, together in communities, for the purpose of God's mission in our daily lives. Jesus did not live, die, and resurrect from the dead to secure us for Sunday attendance – where we offer a paltry 1.5 hours for 52 weeks. Rather, Jesus died to give us life and life to the full. He bestowed upon us our precious identity as children of God. He birthed us into a family called the church. And He set us on a mission and a purpose that would change our world through our everyday life. This is who we are in Christ. And so, this becomes what we do. This is our mission: to be gospel communities sent in the everyday.
