As with that of any organization, our mission statement and core values are designed to be a constant target for us to strive for by God's grace. They serve both to measure our progress in the present, and to aim our vision for the future.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT:
"Abingdon Bible Church seeks to be a world-conscious Bible-teaching church that leads the Abingdon community to worship and serve the living God through a growing relationship with Jesus."
OUR CORE VALUES:
Biblical Teaching - The inspired Scriptures teach us the knowledge of God and the way of salvation. They are the authority for correct doctrine and holy living and the standard by which God judges us. They provide an anchor in a rapidly changing world. Thus expository preaching and biblical teaching are a priority in our ministry (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 4:1-4).
Corporate Worship - We assemble regularly for corporate worship to acknowledge God’s greatness and to express our love for Him. All aspects of our public services seek to express our worship including prayer, music, giving, baptism, the Lord’s Supper, testimonies, and hearing and responding to God’s Word (Matthew 22:37; Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 1:18; 3:16-17).
Worldwide Outreach - In obedience to the Great Commission, we seek to proclaim the gospel personally and corporately in our community; and we send and support Christian workers around the world. Our compassion for the lost further compels us to rescue them from eternal judgment and to bring them into God’s family (Matthew 9:37-38; 28:19-20; Acts 1:8; 2 Cor. 5:14-15; 18-20).
Spiritual Maturity - Discipleship seeks to develop godly relationships, to foster accountability and to achieve spiritual maturity. It prepares every believer for godly living through obedience to the Scripture and equips them for ministry. It equips leaders for our families and church through mentoring and developing ministry skills. Trained leaders enable our congregation to grow, become potential missionaries, free the pastors to serve in their areas of strength, lay the foundation for the next generation, and serve our community (Acts 6:3; 1 Cor. 12:12-26; 2 Timothy 2:2; 2 Peter 1:5-11; 3:18).
Compassionate Care - God’s people are commanded to show His compassion by caring for the many needs of people. We seek to integrate each member of the congregation into a small group setting to enable them to minister to one another. Pastoral care provides spiritual guidance to individuals (Matthew 25:31-46; Luke 10:25-37; 1 Cor. 12:26; James 2:14-26; 1 John 3:11-18).
