Our Mission

WE EXIST TO KNOW JESUS AND MAKE JESUS KNOWN

One Church Joplin exists to truly know the heart of Jesus. We believe in the Christian faith we should seek Jesus everyday in an effort to follow Him closer and grow in our relationship with Him. The second half of our mission is to make Jesus known. Our goal is to make Jesus known by being examples of his love for humanity.

Our Values

Team – We is better than me

Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that. Don’t be impressed with yourself. Don’t compare yourself with others. Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life. Be very sure now, you who have been trained to a self-sufficient maturity, that you enter into a generous common life with those who have trained you, sharing all the good things that you have and experience.

Galatians 6:4-5 MSG

Impact – Whatever it takes

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

Colossians 3:17

Love – We love people where they are

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

Matthew 22:37-39

Steps – Which way are your feet pointed?

God wants us to grow up, to know the whole truth and tell it in love – like Christ in everything. We take our lead from Christ, who is the source of everything we do. He keeps us in step with each other. His very breath and blood flow through us, nourishing us so that we will grow up healthy in God, robust in love.

Ephesian 4:15-16

Truth – It dares you to see things differently

The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.

Psalm 119:130

Simplicity – We do less so we can accomplish more

…let us throw off everything that hinders…

Hebrews 12:1

Excellence – Doing our best honors God

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.

Colossians 3:23

Evangelism – Lost People matter to God, so they matter to us

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

John 3:16

Innovation – The Gospel never changes, but our strategy for sharing it with our culture does

To the weak I became weak that I might win the weak; I have become all things to all men, so that I may by all means save some.

1 Corinthians 9:22
