Our vision as The Willows Church is to:
– Embrace our community and invite them to explore Jesus.
– Enfold everyone into the “family” of the Willows.
– Multiply disciples, leaders and ministries that multiply themselves through innovation and mentorship.
At The Willows, we have a set of values that drive our mission. They are the undercurrent of everything we do, and they help to centre us on how God has designed the Willows to serve Him. Our core values are:
We exist to share the good news that the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ has changed everything. We want to love him fully, live in him joyfully, and proclaim him authentically.
We understand the church to be neither a place, nor an event, but rather a people. The pursuit of loving and authentic relationships with God, each other, and our world is at the core of all we do.
We seek to present Christ in ways that are innovative and culturally effective because we believe that the message of Christ is the most relevant message of all!
We desire to live our lives before God, and in community with one another with honesty and transparency, both receiving, and giving the grace of God as we wrestle through life’s challenges together.
The message of Jesus is that God reached out to us in the midst of our sin in order to restore us to Himself. As we put our faith in Him and let Him guide us, we too become agents of restoration, bringing the hope of Christ to a world full of broken people and broken systems.
We desire to extend the message of Jesus and multiply the church through intentional relationships, missional homegroups, and compassionate service to our community.
