Missio Dei is a Latin theological term that means the “sending of God”. The term highlights the truth that mission is birthed from the trinitarian nature of God. God the Father sent God the Son, Jesus Christ (John 12:45,49;16:5). God the Father and Son sent God the Spirit (John 15:26;14:16,26). Now, God the Father, Son and Spirit send the church (John 17:18;20:21). Missio Dei Church exists because we believe that God is on mission by the power of His Spirit, to rescue and redeem His people, transforming us into the image of His Son, so that culture begins to take on the image of the His Kingdom.
Gospel Truth: We believe that the gospel of Jesus Christ is central to everything. We will boldly, but humbly proclaim the truth of the gospel message, contending for the faith (Jude 3) while contextualizing the message for a changing culture (1 Corinthians 9).
Intentional Community: We believe that mankind was made for deep, intimate relationship (Genesis 2:18). We want to be a church where people can know and be known; where disciples are made in life on life friendships.
Radical Generosity: We believe that everything we have has been given by God for God, and we are merely stewards of the time, talents, and treasures we’ve been given. We want to give of our resources generously, in order to bless others, and see the Kingdom of God expanded.
Missional Living: We believe that we are here, now, in this place at this time as a sovereign act of God in order that we might point others to Jesus (Acts 17). We want to live on mission with God, for the glory of God, and proclaim the gospel in word and deed.
