Our mission is simple
To help people put God on display
The Christian life is meant to be lived for the glory of God and so we want to put God on display wherever we LIVE, WORK, or GO.
LIVE: This means our neighborhood or our apartment complex. Jesus commanded us to love our neighbor and so we want to put God on display in our neighborhoods so that our neighbors know and experience the grace and love of Jesus Christ.
WORK: This is our workplace. Many of us have co-workers or people we work alongside with and it is important that we are putting God on display in our workplace, conducting ourselves in a manner worthy of the Gospel.
GO: This covers all the times we are present somewhere. Whether this is at the park, a restaurant you visit frequently, or a gym that you have a membership to, we want to put God on display and share the love of Jesus.
Salvation is not about believing in Jesus to escape hell when you die. It is rather about cultivating a loving and submitted relationship with Jesus that allows us to participate in the wholeness of God’s life here and now. Salvation thus empowers us to live like Jesus and to become the means by which the wholeness of God’s life brings healing to our broken society as well as to God’s broken creation. We call this process discipleship; where we learn to be like Jesus.
At Twin Oaks, there are five areas that we look at to identify disciples of Jesus and we call this "The FIVE":
GROWING IN INTEGRITY
As disciples of Jesus, we are committed to growing to become more like Christ so that the image of God that shines through us accurately reflects His holiness and beauty.
Serving is essential to the growth of a disciple and it is important for everyone to find a place to serve, using their gifts to build up the Church. We serve out of our passion and love for Christ.
God has entrusted us with the resources that we have and so it is our responsibility to steward those resources wisely and live a life of generosity. We have don't have to give; we get to give. Giving puts us in a position to trust God.
LOVING IN COMMUNITY
We are committed to being in community, not just on a Sunday morning but also in smaller communities such as Life Groups and a ministry in the Church. In those smaller communities, we submit ourselves by loving one another and building supportive relationships.
SHARING CHRIST BOLDLY
Through our actions and through the words we speak, we share the name of Jesus boldly. We share our stories and use it as a testament to the work of Christ.
