Our Mission

>belong >>believe>>>become

We love people. We love our community. And we love God.

God continues to affirm the calling and mission of Geneva CONNECT Church, reminding us of a very important kingdom reality:

1 Corinthians 1:26-29 Remember, dear brothers and sisters, that few of you were wise in the world’s eyes, or powerful, or wealthy when God called you. Instead, God deliberately chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose those who are powerless to shame those who are powerful. God chose things despised by the world, things counted as nothing at all, and used them to bring to nothing what the world considers important, so that no one can ever boast in the presence of God. (NLT)

God has strategically placed CONNECT Church within Geneva for such a time as this. He desires us to impact our community with healing and hope and wholeness. We exist, not to selfishly cater to our own wants and needs but to the needs of others, especially those who do not yet know Christ. Our purpose is not to multiply members but disciples who function as missionaries, carrying the good news of Jesus to every corner of our community.

Belong. Believe. Become. This is the vision of our church. It also represents a new way of being the church in the midst of today’s culture and our community.

By emphasizing belonging before believing, people are encouraged to get involved in our community of faith while they “check this Christianity thing out.” It also encourages the fostering of relationships and demonstrates to pre-Christians that we are more interested in them as people than in what they currently believe or how they are currently living.

Therefore, belong, believe, become are much more than just words. They are powerful articulations of what our church stands for (i.e. our values) and is committed to living out. 

Leadership Team:

Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.
