Global Outreach Vision 2020

Vision 2020

To know God’s will and plan for our church in reaching out into our communities, cities and to the ends of the earth (cf. Acts 1:8, Matt. 28:18-20).

What we do, needs to come from who we are.  We reach out and are involved in missions, because we are missional (in light of a missional God).  As new creations in Christ, our whole being is focused on 3 aspects of our identity in Christ that Paul refers to in multiple passages; hope, love and faith (cf. 1 Cor 13, Col 1:5, 1 Thess 1:3, 1 Thes 5:8).  These three aspects also represent the past (faith in what God has revealed through the ages, culminating in Christ), present (our love for God and our neighbors) and future (the hope we have in Christ’s return and the restoration of all creation). We can translate these aspects of our Christ-identity into actions:

  • Faith – Witness
  • Love – Compassion
  • Hope – Care

We are therefore called to witness and proclaim Christ outwards through all three of these actions.

In searching God’s vision for Covenant Church, we believe that we are called to be obedient within our reach (our communities and cities within North Carolina) and outside our immediate reach (to the ends of the earth); or local and global outreach.

Focus Areas

We believe that God has called us to be involved in eight focus areas: three local and five international. As we develop relationships with our ministry partners in each of these areas, we understand more about our calling to each area.
