What Is Our Vision?
We believe that ALL people matter to God and that God wants ALL people in a relationship with Him through His Son, Jesus Christ. Therefore, we at Hickory Creek Community Church desire...
...to be a church where people at every stage of life can come and be ministered to so that they can minister to others.
...to be a church where we minister to those who are younger and older, in school and out of school, those with kids and without kids, those who work and those who are retired.
...to be a church where "being" the church is more important than "doing" church.....to be a church that glorifies God and exalts the name of Christ in everything we do.
...to be a church that is more interested in where people are heading than in where they have been.
...to be a church that encourages people to take the "next step" of faith and maturity from whatever point they are at.
...to be a church where the healthy help the hurting and the hurting are becoming healthy.
...to be a church where the words "Love God...Love People...Live it out!" is more than just a motto, it is a way of life.
What is Our Purpose?
The purpose of Hickory Creek Community Church is to glorify God by fulfilling the commission given by him as recorded in Matthew 28:19-20. More specifically, we seek to build fully devoted followers of Christ, who are worshiping and growing in their relationship with Christ, fellowshipping with and ministering to the people of Christ, and reaching out in love to those who don't know Christ. This is expressed in our motto to "Love God...Love People...Live it out!" We seek to fulfill our purpose by the following:
a. Discipleship - We will teach those in the church the fundamental truths of Scripture so they can be equipped for every good work (2 Timothy 3:16).
b. Worship - We will provide the means for developing and expressing meaningful worship in prayer, songs of praise, adoration, admonishment, singing and making melody in our hearts to the Lord, and to administer the ordinances of baptism and the Lord's supper (Hebrews 13:15; Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16; 1 Corinthians 11:23-34; Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:42).
c. Fellowship - We will encourage and provide means of developing meaningful relationships among believers (expressions of sharing and caring for, and loving one another, warning, stimulating, and encouraging one another to love and good deeds (Hebrews 10:24-25; 13:1-2; Acts 2:42-47)).
d. Ministry - We will provide the means for developing and exercising spiritual gifts for the edification of the body (Romans 12:3-8; 1 Peter 4:10-11).
e. Evangelism - We will train and encourage people to reach out to those around them in action and words so opportunities may be had to present the Gospel of Jesus Christ to those who have never received Him.
