One definition of the word vision is seeing the ultimate desired end. At Southeast we see a church that makes a great difference in the lives of all who attend. We see a multi-generational church that meets the needs of the whole family.
Church is to be about Loving Relationships
This requires that people really get to know and care for a group of friends within the church, and that we’re committed to overcoming any relational difficulties that may arise.
Church is about building Christlike People
Living like Jesus is the best our lives can hope to be here on earth. This growth requires the effective teaching of the Bible, strong Sunday School classes & Small Groups, and a continual focus on helping people develop as authentic 24/7 Christians.
Church is to be about Experiencing God
When we get together at church we are not just going through some religious ritual or routine. We know that we are in God’s presence, and we have the opportunity to express our love and devotion to Him. Experiencing God in church requires innovative worship services that inspire people of each generation to open heartfelt communication with their Creator.
Church is to be about Reaching Out
A wise person has said, “We teach what we know, but we reproduce what we are.” The only way we can help someone else know Jesus is for us to live knowing Him in every aspect of our lives. His life and mission must be our own. In Luke 19:1-10 we see that Jesus reached out to a hated tax-collector named Zacchaeus. In verse 10 Jesus says, “Today salvation has come to this house… (I) came to seek and save what was lost.” We are striving as a church to intentionally love, serve, and lead people into a saving relationship with Jesus Christ.
