Who We Are
MapleView Church of Christ is a community of believers in God who look to the Bible for sole authority and instruction on how to live life with God, with His Church, and with the community around us. (Acts 2:42-47)
We don't look to traditions, reason, or the culture of the day as our authority, but understand that these things are the context in which we teach and live out Biblical truth.
Our model for church is found in the book of Acts where the history of the first church is documented.
Before Christ left He gave us His mission for the world found in Matthew 28:18-20. At MapleView it is our goal to live that mission purposfully everyday. To that end we have a Vision and Motivational beliefs that define the ministry and goals of our church.
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing 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. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Matthew 28:18-20 New International Version (NIV)
The goal for our church is to grow each person in these beliefs, so they will be able to put Christ Love into Action Everywhere and fulfill the mission that Christ set for us as a church.
Putting Christ's Love Into Action Everywhere
So exactly where is everywhere? If you look back to the mission set by Jesus we see three relationships. They are to the lost, to the church and finally with God. So we define everywhere as love in every relationship that we have.
