Just before Jesus ascended into heaven, He said, "I'm going to give you the Great Commission," MT 28:19-20, (NLT) "Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you."
In essence, Jesus was saying to those early disciples, "I don't ever want my followers to be fuzzy about what I've called you to do; I want you to:
- Lead people into faith.
- Disciple them into the maturity of faith.
- Empower them to GO and spread the Gospel message to all the world!
And so Hobart Assembly's Mission Statement reads this way:
"To take people who are far from God and turn them into committed followers of Jesus Christ."
At Hobart Assembly, our vision is expressed through these chief objectives:
To be a house of prayer.
To be a soul-winning station.
To be a disciple-making church.
To equip every believer for significant ministry.
To be a family training center.
To be a caring place.
To be a place where God's manifest presence is experienced.
To serve our community.
So it is with those that we at Hobart Assembly have this vision:
"To transform our communities through the life-changing Gospel of Jesus Christ where God's presence is encountered, His love is exemplified, and His power is experienced."
