"And the peace of God,which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." - Philippians 4:7
To paraphrase a philosopher, "If a church has discovered it's "why" for living, it can handle almost any "how". Why does the church exist? Why did God call for and create a Christian community known as Serenity at this time and "for such a time as this"? Our Savior and Holy Scriptures provide us with our "why"—our fivefold mission is to:
EXALT THE SAVIOR
Matthew 4:10: Psalms 34:3
We are, out of love, to exalt the name of the Lord through worship, praise, and adoration. Consequently, worshipping privately and corporately is primary. Serenity must create a climate where worship is possible and powerful in both personal and communal contexts.
EDIFY THE SAINTS
Colossians 1:28, Acts 9:31, Acts 2:42-47
The word "edify" means to build up. Though Christ accepts us as we are, He does not want us to remain as we are. Serenity is to accept people, meeting them on their level and then nurturing them to spiritual maturity. Serenity is to edify her members to become more like Jesus Christ in thoughts, feelings, words, and deeds. Because the Christian faith involves believing, behaving, and belonging, fellowship is necessary for saints to be edified.
EQUIP FOR SERVICE
Every Christian is called to minister. Serenity exists to discover and develop their spiritual gift(s) and surrender to the call and claim of God upon their lives to fulfill God's mission in a ministry of service. Saints are saved to serve!
Matthew 28:19-20, Acts 1:8, Mark 16:15
"The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing." "Fishers of people" are never content to exchange fish with other aquariums. A non-witnessing Christian is a contradiction in terms. The "main thing" for the church in general and Christians in particular is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with everyone. This is our high honor to share what we have received. We should share the gospel as if it will save the lives of people without Christ, because it will.
EMANCIPATE THOSE WHO ARE SUFFERING
Luke 4:18-19, Matthew 25:31-46
Jesus the Christ sets people free. Serenity is to be a continuation of Christ's incarnation empowered by the Holy Spirit to engage in a ministry of liberation and transformation. This ministry of liberation and transformation should impact individuals, institutions and communities so that healing, wholeness, deliverance, and freedom is available to the disinherited, the distressed, the depressed, the oppressed, the hurting, the impoverished and those Jesus referred to as the "least of these".
DON'T TAKE WHAT OTHERS SAY, GET TO KNOW JESUS WITH US!
