A Life of Reach
For Mountain View Community Church, these core practices are summarized as spiritual, God's desire, a life that touches others, concerned with the welfare of others, and confidence.
Central to the church's mission is the call of Scripture to Reach the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is a definite and clear calling for Mountain View Community Church.
Still, from its webpage, believers are God's representatives on earth tasked to share the Gospel of Christ with the lost and fallen world.
Life that Touches Others
According to the MVCC core practices, a believer engaged in the practice of Reach will possess a concern for and be in a relationship with non – believers.
Concerned with the welfare of others
A Life of Reach is a life with concern for the physical, emotional, and spiritual welfare of others.
People who reach display a degree of confidence that grows from maturity and passion for seeing the Kingdom of God prosper.
