Our Mission
 
“Family Worship Center is a community of Spirit-filled believers committed to God’s purpose of changing lives by worshiping God, leading others to Jesus and building a unified team to care for all in every stage of life.”
Our Vision
 

“A Great Place To Call Home” — Our Vision at Family Worship Center is fulfilled as we focus on five primary objectives:

  1. People Getting Saved Every Service — The book of Acts tells us that “…the Lord was adding to their number day by day those who were being saved” (Acts 2:47). In our community of Cairo, Georgia, there is the potential for having someone saved at every service. This vision will become a reality as every member becomes an evangelist.
  2. A Multi-cultural Church Filled With Diversity — Our church should be a reflection of our community. One should be able to look at our congregation and see what the community looks like. This vision will become a reality as we “go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature.”
  3. 1,000 People Committed To Discipleship — We live in a community of 25, 000 people. Our research tells us that less than 5,000 of these people attend church on any given Sunday. This vision will become a reality as we reach and teach at least 1,000 people and connect them to the process of becoming mature disciples of Jesus Christ.
  4. Every Member Involved In Ministry — There is a place of ministry for everyone in the body of Christ. Every believer, to be a good steward of the grace of God, should find the place God has for them and be found faithful and fruitful in that place. This vision will become a reality as we train, equip, provide opportunities, and release every member to do ministry.
  5. A Model Church For Others To Follow — Because of our location in a rural culture, we are learning that ministry here is much different than that of a metropolitan culture. However, there is a great rural harvest in our nation that is going unreached. This vision will become a reality as we develop ministries, methods and materials that are effective in rural areas and provide teaching, training and resources to other congregations through CDs/DVDs, books, conferences, seminars, and workshops in order to assist other congregations in reaching the harvest in other rural areas.
Our Core Values
 

We believe that all people are valuable to God and to His kingdom. Because people matter to God, they matter to us as well. It is our desire and our responsibility to provide an environment of welcome and acceptance to all. (John 3:16; Romans 10:13; Acts 10:34)

We believe that the family is an institution of God that should be provided, promoted and preserved for the purpose of facilitating strong, healthy and meaningful relationships. We are a family of God and it is important to us that we build strong families while also becoming a family for those who are without one. (Ephesians 3:14-15; Acts 2:42-47; John 19:26-27)

We believe that we can do more together than we can alone. Our mission requires that we do ministry as a team. We are committed to building and developing a congregation of teams to insure that every member has a place of significance where they can contribute to the fulfillment of our mission. (Ephesians 4:16; Matthew 18:19; Ecclesiastes 4:9-12; Romans 12:3-5; I Corinthians 3:6-10)

We believe that a personal commitment to spiritual growth and development is necessary for individuals to become mature disciples. Spiritual growth is not an event, it is a process that happens daily in the lives of individuals. Every believer should have a desire for spiritual growth, a personal plan to use as a road map, someone to be accountable too and a personal commitment and discipline to walk it out every day. (I Peter 2:1-2; II Timothy 2;14-16; II Timothy 2:1-2; Romans 10:17)

We believe that every believer has been given special gifts and abilities and is expected by God to discover, develop and deploy them. Spiritual gifts are needed for a healthy body. Each believer is most effective when they are working in their area of giftedness. Therefore, we encourage the use of spiritual gifts, we value them, we need them and provide opportunity for them. (Romans 12:6-21; I Corinthians 12; I Timothy 4:14; II Timothy 1:6; I Peter 4:10)

We believe that every believer is called to be a soul winner and that each of us should do our part to fulfill the Great Commission at home and throughout the world. God has called people to reach people. We believe that the most effective way to do this is through relationships—”each one reaching one.” While this begins at home, at work, and at play, we also understand that our responsibility is to include “…the uttermost parts of the world,” as well. Therefore, we joyfully promote and support the ministry of World Missions. (Proverbs 11:30; John 1:43-45; 3:1-21; 4:28-30; Acts 8:25-40; Matthew 28:18-20)

We believe that in whatever we do, we should do our very best. How we do things affects our witness. It is our conviction that we should strive for excellence in all things. (Ephesians 6:7-8; Colossians 3:23-24; Matthew 25:14-30)

We believe that God is the owner of everything and that we are required as stewards to manage His resources wisely. We acknowledge that everything we have is a gift from God, including our money, our time, and our talent. Therefore, we are committed to practicing and teaching the biblical principles of stewardship. (Malachi 3:8-12; Luke 6:38; II Corinthians 9:6-13; Matthew 25:14-30)

We believe in recognizing and training potential leaders who are committed to Christ and willing to impact their world. We believe leadership can be learned. Therefore we are constantly on the lookout for self-motivated learners that we can invest in for the purpose of helping them fulfill their destiny. (Deuteronomy 31:14,23; I Samuel 16:10-13; Acts 13:36; II Timothy 2:2)

We believe that without the total dependence upon the power and presence of the Holy Spirit that nothing of eternal significance can be accomplished. Whatever we do on our own is subject to fail. We must never think that our plans and our abilities are enough to fulfill our mission. Without the Holy Spirit as our Leader, our Coach, our Comforter and our Help, all we do is in vain. (John 14:16-18; 15:1-11; 16:13-15; I Corinthians 2:9-16)
