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 New Season Ministry 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.
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.
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.
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 and powerful living Word of God.
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.
