Liberty Fellowship’s Vision
Our vision is to impact New Castle, the surrounding areas, and the world for God. In order to accomplish this we believe we must help people to be:
We all come into the Kingdom of God hurting. Liberty Fellowship desires to bring complete healing to the spiritual, emotional and physical lives of individuals, couples, and families.
Perfecting the saints for the work of the ministry is an essential element in order for the church to fulfill the great commission. Each believer is viewed as a minister of the gospel, and is vital to its success in being spread to the world.
Our ultimate goal is to bring each individual to the place where he is truly a functioning member of the body and free to bring
healing to the world.
People can be overcomers in every situation through the uncompromising Word of God and though a personal and intimate relationship with Jesus Christ.
A Vision Statement Must Be. . .
1. Concise. It takes work to get a vision statement that can be stated in a sentence or two. But this also forces a group to choose very specific words to define the vision. Long drawn out vision statements are hard to remember and difficult to communicate.
2. Clear. Make sure your vision has clarity and is easily understood. Example it needs to be clear if a group wants to grow personally and in numbers as a group.
3. Consistent. Is the vision consistent with the overall mission of the church? Your vision statement for your group should somehow relate directly to the purpose of the church.
4. Compelling. Is your vision statement something you can sink your teeth into? Is it something worth rallying around? Does it reflect the passion of the church?
5. Easily communicated. Can the members of your group communicate the vision? The vision should be worded in such a way that the phrases or words are easily spoken and remembered. It should be organized around the concepts of spiritual growth, interpersonal growth, emotional growth and maturity, and numerical growth
6. Collaborative. Was the vision statement developed in collaboration with the group? It is key that you work with your members (or at least the regular attenders in some ministries) to develop a vision statement that reflects the values of the group as a whole. The more the people own the vision, the more they will make a commitment to it.
