We exist to be a Jesus-centered community in Townsend, speaking Gospel words and doing Gospel works to display the worth of God to the world.
We exist to be a Jesus-centered community in Townsend
Before we exist to do something, we exist as a church to be something: a community of people gathered around Jesus, the one who unites and excites us. And together as a Christian community, we’re on a mission to love and serve the larger community in which God has placed us: Christ Church loves Townsend and the other towns of our region.
Speaking Gospel words and doing Gospel works
We aim to give away the most precious thing we have: the gospel. We do this by speaking gospel words – words that describe and delight in the beautiful gospel of Jesus Christ. And we do gospel works – any acts of loving service (going to work, raising kids, cleaning the house, having someone over for dinner) that we do as forgiven sinners and children of God in order to advance the gospel.
to display the worth of God to the world.
God’s worth blows our minds – we can’t measure it, contain it, or fully comprehend it. But we’ve experienced enough of it that we love to commend it to others by speaking gospel words, doing gospel works, and embodying the gospel word in Jesus-centered community. Our mission begins in Townsend and extends to all peoples and nations.
