Reaching out with God's love to impact lives

Our Mission

Our Mission: 

To Reach Out with God’s Love to Impact Lives


Our Core Values:

Our core values are the atmosphere; the culture and heartbeat of our church.












In John 4:34, we hear Jesus say, “My food is to do the will of him who sent me, and to finish his work.”  If there is any organization that should be committed to doing the will of God; and to finish the work he gave us to do, it’s the church.  We are his people, our desire ought to reflect that of our Master. The work of Jesus Christ on earth has not ended with his ascension…it continues through his church; through us!  What a powerful thought and reality that is!  That we are the work of God on earth to do the Father’s will, and to finish his work.  And what is that work?  It is to give everyone around us an opportunity to hear the gospel and respond to it.  










From the conversation Jesus had with the Samaritan woman in John 4:13-26, we have learned that the work which needs to be finished has nothing to do with the maintenance of religious rituals; but it has everything to do with the proclamation of the gospel to a lost, messed up and broken world.  Our goal as a church is not be a place where people go through the motions of religious ceremony, but at Foothills, our church seeks to be a well, where lost people can find that one drop of living water that Christ gives to the spiritually thirsty.  











From Paul’s command to young Timothy in 2 Timothy 2:2, we learn that we must be no longer obsessed with simply building the biggest crowd in town.  What good is a crowd of people who have no idea what it means to be a disciple?  What we want to see is a church of disciples who know how to make disciples; people who are growing deeper in their passion, Biblical understanding, and commitment to follow Jesus even when the road gets hard.  We are seeking to become a church where everyone is being mentored or is mentoring someone else in the faith. 












From Revelation 3:15, we learn that what Jesus wants is for his churches to make a positive and marked difference in the world for good.  Not to be a lukewarm version of what we once were. Jesus wants us to either be hot water or cold; either healing and restorative or refreshingly revitalizing to those who have been spiritually beaten up by the world.  As a church, we want to change the world for someone…not merely just take up space within it.  That’s what we long to be; a church that changes the world for good and for God, one whosoever at time!  











From 2 Corinthians 4:2-3, we learn that instead of coming up with our own solutions; instead of trying to manipulate people through political maneuvering; and cleaver human innovation. We instead commit ourselves to pray; to ask, to seek and knock.  We commit ourselves to rest in Providence.  We commit ourselves to be men and women of honor who do God’s work in God’s way.
