Missions Identity

Values of missions at Church of the Saviour

  1. God-centered: Jesus’ glory is our primary motivation for making disciples of all nations. 
  2. Prayer-dependent: Reliance on prayer is foundational and unleashes seismic spiritual power.
  3. Joyfully-surrendered: Jesus’ lavish grace empowers us to risk all and give all to His kingdom priority.
  4. Intentionally-focused: Commitment to God’s distinctive plan to achieve deep and lasting impact, prioritizing those outside the reach of the gospel.
  5. Fully-engaged: Everyone collectively participates in God’s Kingdom plan for COS in Wayne & beyond.

Mission of 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.

Vision of missions at chURch of the saviour

What will COS look like in 5+ years?

A congregation that is “all-in” for reaching unreached people groups. What we mean by “all-in” is…
  • Availability: Here am I, send me.
  • Generosity: Lavishly investing in the Kingdom of God (both corporately and individually).
  • Hospitality: Reciprocal friendships with diaspora from unreached people groups.
  • Intentionality: Praying, learning, mobilizing, pursuing.

We will be so riveted by God's mission and His glory that our global passion and commitment is fully realized by reaching the unreached diaspora people groups in Wayne and the surrounding communities with an unbridled ambition to see all peoples worshiping Jesus for who He is and what He has done.

We will be a church filled with longing to be used by God to reach two prevalent least-reached people groups globally through prayer-born, Spirit-led and empowered plans that transform broken relationship, engage biblical injustices, meet real needs, heal real hurts, and bring forgiveness and reconciliation through the shed blood of Jesus Christ.

We will have a church discipleship process that is so ingrained with "to the nations" that it shapes everything we do from the cradle to the grave.
