Our Mission and Values

OUR MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of First Metropolitan Church is to be a: Dynamic congregation that Declares God’s Word to our community and beyond that Draws people to Christ; that leads people to Develop a godly lifestyle; and, that seeks to Demonstrate God’s love through service.

OUR CORE VALUES

We value the Word of God! We aggressively pursue Christian education and promote individual study of God’s Word. We give ourselves fully to the principles, precepts and promises revealed through God’s written Word, the Bible.

We are a family of faith, leading people to become fully developing followers of Christ by Belonging, Connecting, Growing and Serving.

We believe that worship is the chief priority of man. We encourage the free expression of reverence to God privately as well as in the assembly of believers, in spirit and in truth.

We are intentional about the establishment of relationships.

We are one biblical community, who moves enthusiastically and joyfully in the same direction under Christ and the senior pastors.

We believe the commitment to the local church is expressed in a lifestyle of faith through worship, Bible study, small group involvement, service, evangelism and the giving of one’s financial resources to support the church

We acknowledge the family as a creation of God to provide stability in society and to perpetuate godliness. We believe that the roles of husband, wife, children and parent should be enhanced and encouraged with biblical instruction.

We believe that leaders are called and should be spiritual, maturing, committed, trained and empowered.

We believe valuing excellence means there is accountability to God and to each other, and that we will continually evaluate to improve what we do.
