Vision, Mission & Values
Worshiping God, loving others, and influencing the world, one person at a time.
(Ex 20:3-5, Mark 12:30)(Mark 12:31)(Gen 1:26, 28; Matt 28:17)
We want to be a family-oriented church that is passionately worshipping God (Deut 6:5, Matt 22:37), personally connected to others (Acts 2:42, Eph 2:11-22), and firmly rooted in the Word (Eph 4:11-16, Luke 6:47-49), deeply involved in the local community (Jer 29, 1 Pet 4:9-10), graciously sharing the faith (John 13:35, Titus 2:9-10), and equipping each person to make a difference in the lives of others. (Eph 4:11-16).
These are key areas to focus on for building our church and impacting our city.
The gospel is the good news that God is redeeming the world through Jesus Christ. This good news permeates and motivates everything we do, from Sunday preaching to Monday work, Bible studies to soccer games, church services to community events. Christ is the center and focus of all we do. (1 Cor 15:1-4, 2 Cor 5:14, )
We want every person passionately celebrating and following Christ in all that they do, think, and say. We are followers of Jesus who are helping others follow Jesus. (Deut 6:5, Matt 4:19)
God draws us into relationship with him and that leads to relationships with other believers. Genuine personal relationships are the seedbed of genuine Christian service and mission. (Acts 2:42, Eph 2:22, Eph 4)
The good news can’t be contained. We want to proclaim it to others in word and deed, both as individuals (in families, offices, and neighborhoods) and corporately as the church (church planting, evangelists, corporate meetings, support of domestic and foreign missions). This is our great commission (Matt 28:18).
Racial, economic, and ethnic barriers are big, but the gospel is bigger. Christ makes it possible for people of different backgrounds to come together as brothers and sisters. Radiant Church is a diverse group of people with varied giftings, backgrounds, and callings that are casting aside those differences in order to unite together in the common goal of worshipping God and advancing his kingdom. (1 Cor 12:12-27, Eph 2:14)
God has placed us in the lives of people living in the cross-section of Alpharetta, Johns Creek, Cumming, etc, and we want to be good neighbors by seeking to know, bless, and influence those around us. We want to intentionally remember and help the hurting, struggling, and forgotten in the area. We believe affecting the world begins with first helping those next door. (Jer 29:4-7, 1 Tim 5:8, Matt 22:39).
