The mission of Mecca Community Church is: To introduce people to Christ and help them become fully committed to Him. Our mission can best be discovered by using the acronym JUMP which describes the four parts of our mission:
Jesus Christ is and always will be the focal point of our mission. Without Him we are not a church. There are two main beliefs that we hold as truth and will not compromise. One: Jesus Christ is the only way to get to heaven. Jesus said in John 14:6 “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” Two: Salvation is by grace through faith alone. Ephesians 2:8-9 “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast.” These two truths form the cornerstone for everything we believe.
We are part of the mission; not because God needs us but because He chooses to use us. That is our purpose. 2 Corinthians 5:20 “We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.” We feel this is a great privilege to be a part of God’s work on earth as well as a great responsibility.
It is important to realize that God gave each local church a mission and it is essential for a Christian to be a member of a local church in order to help carry out the mission. God gave Mecca Community Church a mission statement which is just a small piece of the puzzle that fits perfectly in the bigger picture of the work God is doing in our community and around the world. In the same way, you, as a member, are a small piece of the puzzle that fits in the bigger picture of how we as a church carry out our mission.
The platform is where we carry out our mission. For Mecca Community Church that platform is Mecca Township and the surrounding areas. We are community and family oriented. We believe that being involved in the community and helping those around us will not only build a better church, but also a better place to live, work and serve God.
We hope that you would want to become a member of Mecca Community Church in order to help us carry out the mission we have been given. So…are you ready to JUMP?
