Our Mission Statement
MOBC’s Mission Statement explains why the church exists.
Our mission is to make disciples who make disciples.
The Bible tells how before returning to heaven Jesus charged His followers with this precise task. He told them ‘All authority in heaven and earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.’ Matthew 28v18-20 (New International Version) We understand the word ‘disciples’ to mean fully-formed followers of Jesus Christ, so MOBC exists to help people come to faith, grow in their faith and share their faith with others.
Our Vision Statement
MOBC’s Vision Statement is a picture, painted with words, of what it will look like if the church fulfils its Mission Statement.
Our vision is of a passionate, dynamic and joyful Christian community where every member is learning about Christ, loving like Christ, living for Christ, leaning on Christ, and leading others to Christ.
Our Vision Statement is inspired by the example of the first Christians who ‘devoted themselves to the Apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer’ and who saw the Lord add to their number daily those who were being saved (Acts 2v42-47).
Our Strategic Plan
MOBC’s Strategic Plan is a working document that focuses and expresses our intentions over a defined period of time. In the light of our Mission and Vision Statements we have identified a number of ambitious, yet achievable, well grounded and sustainable goals with clear accountabilities that are publicly stated and owned.
