MISSION

Advance God's Kingdom ALWAYS and ONWARD!


Christ Church Mansfield is a worshipping community on mission to reach this and the next generation with the transforming power of the gospel in Mansfield, Arlington, Dallas/Fort Worth TX, and beyond!


We exist to love God, connect people, serve the city, and reach the world.


"And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” - Matthew 28:18-20


"And you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, and even to the ends of the earth." - Acts 1:8


VISION

To see all nouns – all peoples, all places & all things – loved & brought back to life and alignment with God by the transforming power of the gospel. 


Therefore, Christ Church Mansfield exists to bring glory to, and spread the glory of, God, by making disciples and planting churches – reproducing worshipping communities on mission – that love God, connect people, serve the city, and reach the world by the power of the Gospel.


"For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of God,

as the waters cover the seas." -  Habakkuk 2:14

STRATEGY

As a church, motivated by the gospel, we pursue this mission and vision by committing to:

  • Inspiring Worship: loving God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength, with joyfulness, both personally (Scattered) & corporately (Gathered). Up-reach: Love God!


  • Inviting Community: connecting, encouraging, and challenging one another, both within the church family & our ministry context. In-reach: Connect People!
  • Invested Mission: loving & serving one another in the church, as well as others in the places God has called us – everywhere we live, work, & play – encouraging and challenging everyone towards faith in Christ by our witness of WORD and DEED. God saves; we serve. Out-reach: Serve the City!
  • Intentional Discipleship: purposefully thinking, planning, and engaging the next generation, along with those “not yet in the room” with the gospel. Down-reach: Reach the World - this and the next generation!

VALUES

At Christ Church Mansfield, we are just as focused on having a gospel-shaped culture, as we are preaching a gospel-centered message; where the gospel is "caught", not just "taught". These are the values that help us cultivate such a culture.


Generous & Ordinary Hospitality

“Party” people into the kingdom of God & open our lives (homes, schedules, resources) toward others.  We give to others because we have been given so much, lavishly, and immeasurably by God (cf. Luke 15; 2 Corinthians 8:9; Ephesians 1-2). We open ourselves up to others, sharing our time, talent, and treasures, because God the Father, opened Himself up to us by sending His Son to pursue us to the point of death on the cross (cf. John 17; Philippians 2).


Multi-Generational and Trans-cultural Witness

Seek to be a community that defies age, ethnic, and socio-economic categories by our love & respect for others. The kingdom of God is not a commodity of any one nation, tongue, tribe, or people; but is a community of people from every nation, tongue, tribe, and people, (cf. Galatians). The heavenly picture at the end of the age is one of the nations streaming into the renewed city of God, bringing their unique gifts to give glory to God for eternity, (cf. Revelation 5). We are currently citizens of a heavenly city (cf. Philippians), members of a new covenant community (cf. Hebrews), and a new household of faith (cf. Galatians).


Creatively Holistic Renewal 

All-of-life transformed by God’s grace & Christ’s Lordship for the good of others (Marriage, Parenting, Vocation, Arts). Grace changes and restores nature, because Jesus is redeeming “all things to himself,” (Colossians 1:15-20; Romans 8). God has always called His people to partner with Him in His work of redeeming, restoring, and renewing all nouns – all peoples, all places and all things, (cf. Genesis 12; Jeremiah 26; Jonah 4; Matthew, Mark, Luke and John; Revelation 21-22).


Church Planting Church/Always & Onward Mentality

God’s glory spreads through His disciples being & making disciples of others. Our goal is to saturate the world with men, women, and children who love, trust and follow the Lord the Jesus Christ, until He returns (“Always”), and constantly moving out from where we are in any given place (“Onward”) (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8).
