Our Mission/Vision Statement

Mission Statement...

New Season Ministry's mission is to present the Bible as the sole means of understanding God's perfect provision. We will teach clear understanding of scripture, proper navigation through scripture, and the sharing of God's plan for salvation.

New Season Ministry's Mission Statement is designed to reflect the purpose of ministry in and through New Season Ministry. It also reflects the process of ministry that is implemented and helps NSM to be purpose driven. When identified, the mission statement will ensure that everything we do works toward the fulfillment of New Season Ministry's mission and purpose.

Out of our Mission Statement flows our vision statement.

Vision Statement...

Teaching...the Word of God

Preaching...the Will of God

Reaching...a Walk with God

The purpose of New Season Ministry is captured in Matthew 28:18-20 where Jesus stresses the importance of making disciples. He hints at a strategy within the verses:

(1) making contact with people and building a relationship with them ("go and make disciples of all nations");

(2) evangelizing them ("baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit");

(3) teaching them ("and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you"). Our mission statement reflects the process of ministry by describing the key movements in ministry. We make contact with people; evangelize them; and teach them.

New Season Ministry exists to nurture people as they start, develop and grow in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Our choice of signature scriptures (Song of Solomon 2:11; Deuteronomy 28:12; Ezekiel 34:26) articulates our belief that the people of God must facilitate those blessings through community.

Song of Solomon 2:11 - "for lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone."

"The winter" -- of estrangement and sin is "past" to the believer (Isaiah 44:22; Jeremiah 50:20; 2Corinthians 5:17; Ephesians 2:1).

"The rain is over and gone" -- (Hebrews 12:18-24; 1John 2:8). The promise of a new season and period of growth is now beginning for the people of God.

Deuteronomy 28:12 - "The LORD will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow."

"The Lord shall open unto thee his good treasure" --The seasonable supply of the early and latter rain was one of the principal means by which their land was so uncommonly fruitful.

"thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow" --that is, you shall be in such affluent circumstances, as to be capable, out of thy superfluous wealth, to give aid to thy poorer neighbors.

Ezekiel 34:26 - "I will make them and the places all around My hill a blessing; and I will cause showers to come down in their season; there shall be showers of blessing."

"I will make them and the places all around My hill a blessing;" --Zion, God's hill (Psalm 2:6), and all the places in close proximity to Zion become a source of blessing, not merely to the nation, but to all the surrounding nations (Isaiah 56:6, 7; Zechariah 8:13).

"I will cause showers to come down in their season;" - In accord to the ancient covenant, (Leviticus 26:4; Psalm 68:9; Malachi 3:10), fertilizing showers and productive trees and lands (Ezekiel 34:27) prosper externally allowing God's people to be the source of blessings.

New Season Ministry will be a transforming agent in community because we believe God is calling us to transform the nations through His Word.

Our Core Values

Core values are those enduring principals that New Season Ministry [NSM] holds dear and are at the heart and core of the church's identity. These values strongly influence every decision made, every action taken and every dollar spent by NSM. All ministries of NSM will be centered on reflecting these values.

• Bible-Centered Teaching ‐ NSM values biblical expository preaching as the sole means of equipping the people of God, therefore the scripture is our authority. [2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Romans 4:23-24; Deuteronomy 29:29].

• Authority of Jesus Christ ‐ NSM values the person and work of Jesus Christ and the Christian's submission to Him as Savior and Lord of their lives. [Eph. 1:22-23; Colossians 1:18].

• Worship of God ‐ NSM values the worship of God in an effort to thank Him for who He is and what He has done. [Rev 4:11; Ps 22:22; Ps 150;].

• Discipleship ‐ NSM values "making disciples" as a local and world mission command given to the church to fulfill the Great Commission. [Matthew 28:18-20].

• Outreach ‐ NSM values personal relationships-beyond Sunday morning-as an essential context in which evangelism, discipleship, and leadership development takes place. [Acts 2:46-47; Acts 5:42].

• Quality Leadership ‐ NSM values quality leadership as essential for quality ministry. [Titus 1:7-9].

• Excellence ‐ NSM values excellence in ministry because it honors God and inspires people. [1 Corinthians 3:10-15; 1 Corinthians 12].

• Church Structure ‐ NSM values leadership in the church as coming from the elders and daily operations belonging to the church staff. [Exodus 3:16; Exodus 18:21; Numbers 11:16; Titus 1:5-9; Heb 13:7].

• Fervent Prayer ‐ NSM values personal and corporate prayer in the expectation that God answers all requests. [Matt 21:22; Acts 2:42; 1 John 3:21-22].

Our Ministry Focus

"New Season Ministry" is a ministry set in community to make a difference. It is a ministry working in community to assist people in acknowledging and growing in their day-to-day walk with Christ. The heart of New Season Ministry is based in the following:

Teaching…the Word of God

Preaching…the Will of God

Reaching…a Walk with God

It is our desire to move people into the perfecting "will of God." We will do this by challenging people to operate in the truths of God's Word and to walk in the destiny God created for their lives. Because we believe God has a perfect plan for each our lives, we will assist people in moving into God's will by presenting the Bible as the sole means of understanding God's perfect provision.

Our ministry is community based and will unfold through personal relationships and through programs that focus on the spiritual, emotional, mental, social and economic health of the community.

New Season Ministry will partner with other ministries, churches and organizations to build a network of resources to provide community based ministry addressing identified needs in the local community.

Our Bible Creed

I believe the Bible is God's sole means for my perfect provision.
Therefore, I will seek clear understanding of His Word; proper navigation through His Word; and I will share His plan of salvation with the lost.
I will open His Word expectantly, study it prayerfully, and obey it completely.
I will order my life according to it's commands, it's principles, and it's precepts.
This is my Bible… it is the true… powerful… living Word of God.
Our Faith Declaration

O God, I declare again my identity in Christ: I am the salt of the earth; I am a child of God, I am a saint who has peace with You. 
I am a joint-heir with Your Son, I am free from condemnation, and justified by faith. 
I am the temple of the living God, an ambassador for Christ, eternally secure, joyously triumphant, fully complete, and accepted in Him. 
I am a citizen of Heaven and I am blessed with every spiritual blessing.
Amen... So let it be!
