Guiding Principles

Our Mission:

To know Jesus and make Him known.

Our Vision:

To gather our community to Jesus Christ.
To grow together into the image of Jesus Christ.
To go into all the earth and make disciples of Jesus Christ.

Our Strategy:

To faithfully make progress in accomplishing our mission by living in community with each other, by reaching out to the community around us, by reproducing ourselves by making disciples and planting new churches, and by educating each other with the truth of the gospel.  These four elements make up our strategic focus of C.O.R.E.
Community – Outreach – Reproduction – Education

Our Tactics:

We accomplish our strategy by dividing into service teams known as C.O.R.E. Teams.  C.O.R.E. Teams equip church members to do the work of the ministry of the church and enable them to carry that ministry out.

Currently, the primary ministry areas of the church are:

  1. Connection Ministry – Foster community and outreach through fellowship between members and visitors.
  2. Worship Ministry – Facilitate community spirituality by coordinating worship services.
  3. Children’s Ministry – Educate and care for our children in matters of faith.
  4. Building Ministry – Steward our facility for the training of the saints for the work of the ministry and the worship of God.

Each week our C.O.R.E teams are responsible for one of these ministry areas.  These weekly responsibilities then change week to week on a regular rotating basis.

Action Steps:

We place all of this into motion via our Deep Waters evangelization, discipleship, and church planting plan.  If you would like to know more about being a part of what God is doing in and through us at Pillar Church of Woodlawn, you can do so by speaking with one of our pastors.  You can reach them by email at [email protected].
