Church Decides on New Mission Statement

 

The Re-Launch Team decided on a new mission statement for FMBC. It now reads:

 

Forest Meadow Baptist Church exists to make Christ followers of all people groups, from Dallas to the ends of the earth.

As Pastor Tim Ahlen has said, "Our mission is not up for debate-- it has been given to us by the Lord in the Great Commission. He told us that, wherever we go, we are to make disciples of all people groups, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything Jesus commanded us (Mt. 28:19). Our new mission statement is just another way of saying the same thing. The website will reflect this new mission statement in the next week or so.

 

The re-launch team will continue to meet in the days ahead to hammer out our core values, our vision statement and other issues related to the direction in which God is leading us. We will post everything here as it becomes available.
