Our Mission

Identifying Our Mission

The ultimate end or objective to all God is doing in His Church is expressed in the final words of Paul’s prayer for the Ephesian Christians.  To Him (God) be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. (Ephesians. 3:21)

According to this verse the ultimate measure of success for Brookside is how well we bring glory to God through Christ. In other words, our mission is to glorify God by causing others to come to a right opinion of God.

Implementing Our Mission

The mission of the Church is to bring God glory by serving as a permanent, living display of both His redeeming grace and His sovereign wisdom. This mission happens practically when born again members of God’s Church live transformed lives that display this grace and wisdom in real world obedience to God’s Word by walking worthy of this high calling. (Ephesians 4:1-3)
