One of the best ways to define a Missional Community is by starting with the definition of The Church. We understand The Church to be God’s family of missionary servants sent as disciples who make disciples.
A Missional Community, is therefore, a smaller expression of the church – family, missionary servants, and disciple makers - pursuing obedience to the Holy Spirit for the sake of demonstrating and declaring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to a specific group of people.
As we’ve prayed through the vision for our Missional Communities, we believe there are a few patterns and practices that are essential to living this out as a community, both to those in our groups and those outside:
WORD – Being committed to the Word of God
PRAYER – Being committed to a consistent posture of prayer
DEMONSTRATION – Being committed to meeting needs through the power of the Gospel
DECLARATION – Being committed to consistently speaking of the Good News of Jesus
To see a visual of how Missional Communities affect disciple-making and impact Kingdom movement, check out the MC Roadmap.
