Vision & Values

What does "reaching the next person" mean?

Our Vision:

Reaching the next person for Jesus.

So he set off and went to his father. But while he was still far off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion; he ran, embraced him, and kissed him.

Luke 15:20

Encounter. Compassion. Embrace. Run.


Our hope is to encounter the living God, to meet with Jesus. This can happen anywhere, but we pray it’d happen during each and every worship service at Embrace. Services are often the starting point for our relationship with Jesus. Because of this, we always consider the first-time guest, while challenging the person who’s been following Jesus for years. We want everyone to encounter the living God during each service. Find a worship service here.


No matter who you are, where you've been, or where you're going, God welcomes you with compassion. He meets you right where you are. Our hope is to do the same! From the person who has attended for years to the new face who feels unworthy of God’s love, everyone is received with compassion. You are welcome here.


God loves us right where we are and yet He wants to change us. When God embraces us, we can no longer remain the same. We're called to take the next step with Jesus to continue growing in our relationship with him. Joining a group. Serving. Becoming more like Jesus. Embrace your next step. Are you ready to take that next step?


Our relationship with Jesus doesn't end when a worship service or group does. Instead of staying inside the walls of the church, we get moving. We lead. We serve. We forgive. We love. We multiply. We run to the people and the world around us in hopes of reaching the next person for Jesus.
