OUR MISSION & VALUES

OUR MISSION & VALUES
The mission of Living Faith is to reach people across Long Island for Christ and guide them to live as his disciples for the glory of God.
When Jesus gave the Great Commission, he declared the mission of the church was to make disciples. At the same time, he provided a strategy to achieve it. Three things were so important he included them in the Great Commission. They were to: go out into the world, baptize those who believed, and teach them to obey his commands. Our vision statement includes the three things as well. Just like a puzzle, each connects with the other. When combined, these three things achieve a single vision. We call it One Vision.



REACH ONE
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations” 
  MATTHEW 28:19

GUIDE ONE
“teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” 
  MATTHEW 28:20

GLORY
TO ONE
baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit 
MATTHEW 28:19-20
Ultimately, a vision is looking forward into the unknown. It is an act of faith. Hebrews 11:1 says, “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” Clearly, vision without faith is empty, and faith without vision is impossible. Therefore, our vision is about having faith to be “sure of what we hope for.” Also, it is about having vision to be, “certain of what we do not see.” The most amazing thing in the future that will come out of this vision will be thousands of lives changed by God’s grace. One of them could be your husband, wife, child, parent, or friend. Then, we will know God used us – used you – to make a difference. 
Reach. Guide. Glory. Join us. Be one.
