Jesus said that "He will build the church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it" (Matthew 16:18). The church is God's strategy of fulfilling His DREAM of establishing His kingdom in every heart. We invite you to join God's greatest mission of seeing lives transformed for eternity here at Maranatha.
OUR VISION (DREAM)
Our vision is to be a viable and vibrant church of authentic disciples fulfilling God's DREAM to honor Jesus as King.
We achieve our DREAM vision by REACHING people, ASSIMILATING them into the church family, building them to be like Christ through DISCIPLESHIP and equipping them for MINISTRY, to EXALT God’s name.
Below are our 5 key strategic pillars denoted by D.R.E.A.M.
Discipleship is the passionate life-long pursuit to be like Christ. It should not be left to chance but should be intentional and systematic so that we are found faithful in planting and watering the seeds of discipleship through God's Word while depending on God for spiritual growth.
God's love experienced in us naturally overflows to the people around us in tangible ways and comes with the greatest love message - the Gospel. We desire to share God's love especially to those who are spiritually lost, lonely and the least just like Jesus did.
Worship is a lifestyle of putting Christ first. Praise and prayer are tangible expressions of that desire and dependence in our lives. It is only when we gaze upon the beauty of Christ do we become like Him.
We are wired for relationships. We desire an authentic spiritual community. The church is meant to be family, yet the church is imperfect and that is why we need the grace of the gospel to love. Jesus said that love for one another is a powerful witness to the world that God is love.
Jesus said that the church is His body. We are his hands and feet serving others today. When we are equipped to serve God and others, do we become more like Jesus. Each believer is gifted by the Holy Spirit to play different roles in this Body of Christ to effectively represent Jesus to the world.
