Values of missions
- God-centered: Jesus’ glory is our primary motivation for making disciples of all nations.
- Prayer-dependent: Reliance on prayer is foundational and unleashes seismic spiritual power.
- Joyfully-surrendered: Jesus’ lavish grace empowers us to risk all and give all to His kingdom priority.
- Intentionally-focused: Commitment to God’s distinctive plan to achieve deep and lasting impact, prioritizing those outside the reach of the gospel.
- Fully-engaged: Everyone collectively participates in God’s Kingdom plan for COS in Wayne & beyond.
Missions at church of the saviour
We exist to summon the nations, through holistic discipleship, to worship the one true God with us.
- Summon = the gospel is a royal proclamation calling forth the specific action of worship
- The Nations = not a geographic or geo-political boundary—it is all the different ethno-linguistic people groups in the world
- Holistic Discipleship = discipling the whole person, not just as a cognitive exercise, but in how the gospel penetrates and changes our entire life, identity, and teleological trajectory; compassionately proclaiming the gospel in word and demonstrating it in deed
- Worship = the proper delightful response of all to Jesus Christ by ascribing to Him all honor and glory. Worship manifests itself in all our living because our relationship with our Redeemer-God has been restored and this unleashes a Spirit-empowered love for our fellow image-bearers and co-worshipers
- With Us = we are inviting others to join us in worshiping God, so we can kneel side-by-side in humble awe of our crucified and risen Savior

- Intentionality: praying, learning, mobilizing, pursuing
