Church Mission

Sulphur Grove’s mission is to “grow disciples of Jesus Christ, live and share God’s love.”  This mission based on Jesus’ instructions first in Matthew 22:36-40:

“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

Jesus answered, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.  This is the greatest and the most important commandment.  The second most important commandment is like it:  Love your neighbor as you love yourself.  The whole Law of Moses and the teachings of the prophets depend on these two commandments.

Jesus also instructed his followers to:  “Go to all peoples everywhere and make them my disciples: baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and teach them to obey everything I have commanded you.  And I will be with you always, to the end of the age.”  (Matthew 28:19-20)

Our ministries of hospitality, worship, spiritual formation, stewardship, and mission outreach are based on these directions from the Lord of the Church, Jesus Christ, as revealed through the Bible.
