Growing Hearts Toward God
We believe that Jesus intends for His Church to be an agent of transformation: salt, light, and leaven. Our efforts are to be about changed lives.
The components of our vision statement reflect three crucial pathways toward spiritual maturity: the Word of God, redeemptive community, and Christian ministry. In other words, transformation comes as people find a place to grow...a place to belong...and a place to serve.
As our vision continues to be implemented, the leadership has identified three areas of immediate focus: personal devotion, spiritual transformation, and evangelism. The following resources were developed out of this recent initiative:
Personal Worship Self Test
The Southeastern Church strives to be defined by seven core values. We believe these values reflect the heart of God and His purpose for His church.
The Cross Is Foundational
The death and resurrection of Jesus shapes our message and our mission. We teach baptism as a work of God, forgiving penitent sinners who respond in faith, uniting them with the death of Christ, and empowering them through His Spirit to live a new life.
Relationships Are Central
We believe that because of Jesus, people can connect across racial, educational, cultural, generational lines to experience genuine community and to experience significant life change. More>
Truth Is Proclaimed
God is truth and has revealed Himself in Jesus and through the living, active word of God, the Bible, which the Holy Spirit uses to transform lives.
Needs are Met
We are people in whom Jesus lives. As His feet, hands, and feet, our business it to do whatever Jesus would do. We desire to be a church that equips every member for meaningful ministry: to love and serve people in ways that reflect Jesus living in us. More>
Good News Is Shared
We are a community of ordinary people who have been changed from the inside out, and that compels us to speak about Jesus so that others can know Him as well.
Lives Are Transformed
As God's people, we strive to grow into the likeness of Christ, and as a church we strive to provide a climate conducive to spiritual growth--leading people toward maturity in Jesus.
Intimacy With God Is Pursued
Worship can take many forms and expressions as it is primarily an attitude of reverence and love. Our worship is not just demonstrated in public, but also in private as we seek to surrender all that we are to God by following His direction. More>
