For God's glory Fulton PCA desires to be used of God...
To transform the lives of all peoples and generations with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We will do this through the biblical ministries of...
Evangelizing - Enfolding - Edifying - Equipping - Exalting
Every church should have the same biblical mission - to make disciples (Matthew 28:19-20). We have "personalized" this biblical mission to emphasize the Gospel of grace and its effect - transformed lives to the glory of God. This statement of purpose also serves as a reminder that the Gospel is the beginning, middle, and end of the Christian life. The Gospel changes lives in the world (evangelism) and brings people into the Church (enfolding). Further, this same Gospel is the foundation and motivation for ongoing change in our lives (edifying and equipping). Finally, it is the Gospel that will be the theme of our praise both now and in eternity - "Worthy is the lamb that was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing" (Revelation 5:12).
Our Values - Fulton PCA is committed...
To Biblical Authority (The inerrancy and sufficiency of the Scriptures - Old and New Testaments)
To be a Gospel-driven, Christ-centred church
To the ministry of prayer and the Word
To Biblical worship and to the Lord's Day
To the Great Commission (Evangelism, Church Planting, and Missions)
To family worship and nurture of our covenant children
To Reformed theology (Westminster Confession of Faith) as an accurate summary of Biblical teaching
To Biblical mercy ministry
To a Reformed/Christian worldview
Our Vision of what we desire to be as we fulfill our mission
Fulton PCA desires to be a life-changing family making disciples of all generations - a redeemed community of young and old entrusted with the transforming ministry of prayer and the mandate of the Gospel.
"Since my youth, O God, you have taught me, and to this day I declare your marvelous deeds. Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, O God, till I declare your power to the next generation, your might to all who are to come." (Psalm 71:17-18)
In the New Testament the Church is pictured by several different figures, one of which is a family or household. "...you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God's people and members of God's household" (Ephesians 2:19). Our "elder brother", Christ, has redeemed us. As a family of the redeemed we desire to make disciples of all generations through the Biblical ministries of Evangelism, Enfolding, Edifying, Equipping, and Exalting.
