To intentionally live out invitational ministries as an expression of God’s love and grace by experiencing God, seeking his will, responding to his call, and being the Body of Christ in word and in deed.
We have a vision of the time that the Kingdom of God is a reality in the Alabama-Florida region—when the Community of Christ comprises a prophetic people who intentionally live out invitational ministries and when each congregation reaches out to the community as an expression of God’s love and grace. We envision a time when all people, as servants of the Lord Jesus Christ, have a passion for the Christ and love as He loved, when they demonstrate the gospel principles in their daily living, when they utilize their giftedness in godly pursuits, when they recognize the worth of all peoples, and when joy abounds and peace prevails.
