Our Mission

We are a Great Commission Driven Church

Our Mission: 

Reaching and leading people to take their next step with God.

The mission of the church is to make disciples. Discipleship isn’t just one of the things the church does; it is what the church does. Next Steps is our discipleship strategy.  We believe that following Jesus is a lifelong journey that progresses one step at a time.  The obvious first step is the invitation to follow.  From there it is a progressive challenge of movement always looking to take the next step. Since the goal or destination is becoming like Christ, that journey will include the challenge of a continual next step. Vertical Church has designed steps to help people grow in every stage of spiritual development.

Our Vision:

To help people Experience God, Find Community, and Fulfill Their Purpose.

Our vision comprises what we do. These three things keep us strategically simple to help people grow in a relationship with God. We believe God intended for us to live in His presence, with others, being who God called us to be and doing what He called us to do.


Experience God

Our Weekend Celebrations are designed for people to experience the Presence of God. God deeply desires to connect with people and allow them to encounter His love. That’s why Jesus came; to make that possible for every human being. We believe that in God’s Presence our lives can be transformed.

Our Weekend Celebrations are for everyone. They provide a time for the church to gather to worship God corporately and learn His Word. But at the same time, we go out of our way to be a church that unchurched people enjoy attending. No matter where people are at in their journey of faith we want everyone to know that they can be united in a relationship with God and enjoy His presence.


Find Community

Vertical Groups are a place to connect relationally and grow spiritually. We believe that life transformation happens in the context of relationships. Structured relationships provide the best opportunities for growth. Getting connected at Vertical means participating in a Vertical Group. God created us to live in community with others, and it is only then that we can experience the full life He intends for us.

Vertical Groups refer to all the different types of Groups people can be involved in at Vertical Church.


Fulfill Your Purpose

All of us were created by God to make a difference in the life of another person. God has a place for each of us where our unique abilities and passions can touch the lives of others. Our Dream Team is how we empower volunteers to live out their purpose and serve others through their gifts and passions to make that difference. Serving others through love is how we most embody Christ and allow Him to be seen in our world. We believe that our lives will never make sense until we find, develop, and fulfill that purpose. Growth and maturity come as we become less focused on what we can receive and more focused on what we can give. Serving others through love is how we most embody Christ and allow Him to be seen in our world.

Our Dream Team includes anywhere volunteers serve the mission and vision of Vertical Church which includes our Outreach and Missions efforts.
