More than building a great church, we want to build a great culture. Culture is the vibe in the air people experience when they walk into My City Church. Culture can be defined as:
CULTURE is a system of shared assumptions, values, and beliefs, which governs how people behave in groups.
At My City Church we want to build a culture full of life and passion. Our team always says we want to do something that is alive, fresh, and brand new. One of the elements that makes up the My City Church culture are our shared values. These values are convictions we are passionate about that guide our decisions, attitudes, and behaviors. Our first My City Church value is:
UNITED IN JESUS
We are united under no other name, but the name of Jesus. More than any method or personal preference, we are focused on Jesus and His message.
This value is at the center of all that we do. We are JESUS people, not religious people. Methods will come and go, but our message will remain the same. We believe Jesus has to be at the center of all that we do. He is the center of our thoughts, relationships, families, and our church culture. Often times people ask me what kind of church is My City Church. I always answer: My City Church is a JESUS CHURCH. Jesus is the focus, the message, and the center of all that we do.
In church it is easy to get sidetracked on things that don’t matter.
What kind of small groups are you going to do? What will the worship be like?
These are great questions, but they are not the most important thing. JESUS and the message of the gospel are our true north. We will try anything short of sinning to reach people with the love of Christ. Our methods will change all the time, but our message never will. We are JESUS people.
My heart is to build a church that keeps the main thing the main thing. We will focus on Jesus, preach Jesus, and do whatever we have to in order to reach people for Jesus.
We value this, because we are UNITED IN JESUS. With Jesus at the center, we cannot lose. We are believing that God is bringing a group of people together at My City Church who will love Jesus and His mission with all their heart. We are a church that is UNITED IN JESUS!!
The Best is Yet to Come!
