ABIDING GLORY's mandate is to establish and expand the kingdom of God, on earth as it is in heaven, in individuals, in our region, and around the world.How we accomplish this mandate can be summed up in 3 simple words:CONNECT. GROW. DO.
Connect people to God and other believers in life-giving relationship and communityWe CONNECT people to God in an intimate, supernatural relationship. Every believer is called to know and experience God intimately, to know more than just a head knowledge of God but to actually interact with Him in an intimate, supernatural lifestyle and to worship Him with their whole life.We CONNECT people together in life-giving relationships and community. The Bible says as believers come together in true relationship and community that the life of Jesus is shared, the body of Christ grows and is built up in love.
Disciple, train and equip believers to grow into mature Christ-likeness.Ephesians 4 tells us that the church is called to GROW up into the fullness of the stature of the maturity of Christ. We have a mandate from the Lord to train, equip and raise up an army of mature disciples of Jesus that reflect His love, character, and power to all they come in contact with.
Send an army of believers out into “everyday life” to do the great commission, advancing His kingdom in every sphere of culture.Every believer has a destiny and is called to reach people for Jesus and DO the work of ministry. We help people discover their sphere of calling and assignment within culture and send them out to fulfill the Great Commission in “everyday life”, transforming people, society and nations with the goodness and power of God's Kingdom!
