get in gear!
This is a narrative description of our future for the purpose of inspiring people and providing a context for more specific planning. It is a future picture and declaration of our congregation’s ultimate contribution.
By the end of 2022, every person who calls Engage Calvary their church home will be living in difference-making relationships, in gear, and moving towards our calling in Christ. Fueled by the Spirit and with the Bible as our map, we will set a course towards eternal and abundant life. Through each gear of spiritual formation, we will provide the tools that equip each individual to know the way of truth and also to heed the warning signs along the road as they navigate through their daily lives. We will look outside of ourselves to see the needs of others who are on the road with us or have taken a wrong turn.
We live in a culture where many have taken the right road but have become idle. Some have stalled out and are in need of assistance. Others have taken the wrong road altogether and in need of being re-routed. We seek to steer those who are on the wide road towards the narrow path of life. We will move from coasting to engaging gears and accelerating towards practical ways of living out our faith. We will be lights in the darkness to make the way visible.
Strengthened through spiritual formation and discipleship, we intend to be difference makers both locally and globally. We are going to become a place where it becomes inescapable that to be a part of Engage Calvary is to respond relationally and tangibly to the needs in our community and world.
We envision a community of Christ-centered families and individuals carrying a gospel banner that will introduce even more men, women, college students and children to the good news of Jesus. God has promised life in His Son Jesus Christ; therefore, we know that the time is now for us to get in gear.
