our mission as a church: Leading People to LIFE in JESUS.
We are all created with a desire to make the most out of life, to look for and grab hold of that which will most satisfy us. The problem is, so often we look in the wrong places for our answer, leaving us restless. For so many, they never find what they are looking for.
At Austin Life, we believe the life we are all looking for is found in knowing, loving, and trusting Jesus, and then in giving our lives away for the glory of God and the good of others. (Mark 12:28-31, Psalm 16:11, John 10:10, Luke 9:23-34)
In His presence is the fullness of joy (Psalm 16:11)! With Jesus is abundant life (John 10:10)! We find life when for His sake we are willing to lose it (Luke 9:23-24). Everything we are looking for is found in Jesus.
So how will we do this? How will we as a church, and as individuals that make up the church, actually lead people to life in Jesus?
We believe we will lead people to life in Jesus when we as a church and as individuals within the church all:
We will abide in relationship with Jesus.
We will invite all people into our lives.
We will share the gospel with those entrusted in our lives.
We will build one another up to love, trust, and follow Jesus in obedience.
