The mission of the Tabernacle of Praise Christian Church is to exalt Jesus Christ, equip believer’s for ministry by empowering them with the Word of God, evangelize the lost, and extend the love of Christ to the world.
The Mission Statement is an expression of purpose and the Vision Statement is an expression of faith. One states intention while the other states expectation. A Mission Statement should be succinct and expressed in no more than one sentence. A Vision Statement is more complex and detailed, expressed in several paragraph or even several pages. In the context of church ministry, the Vision Statement communicates the fulfillment of the Mission Statement.
A clearly defined vision has inestimable power. With it, there is vibrancy of hope. Without it, life drains away. A well stated vision sparks fires of genuine enthusiasm about the future. It encourages people to grow fro “faith to faith” – ever expanding in their anticipation of what God can do. It provides clarity in the decision-making process. It affirms that the church is on the right track and moving in the right direction. It creates harmony and fosters positive attitudes. It provides a stabilizing influence when the inevitable crisis and challenges threaten to impede the journey and halt the progress.
