Wekiva's Vision Statement
Rooted in Faith
Wekiva is committed to developing disciples who are rooted in scripture, shaped by worship, and formed in prayer.
They will be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, to display his glory. (Isaiah 61:3)
We believe that an enriched spiritual life seeks to apply biblical teaching so that our daily living reflects the teachings of Jesus. Our commitment to developing disciples will encourage scripture study and nurture a renewed heart of love for God and others. As we study scripture, we are shaped by the Word and begin to recognize our gifts and calling. Wekiva will provide opportunities to grow in faith while developing ministry gifts. To nurture a renewed heart, we commit to worship and prayer. Therefore, Wekiva will provide worship that uplifts the heart and glorifies God. Lastly, in times of conflict and confusion, we will seek to learn in a spirit of reconciliation and acceptance as a witness of the unity proclaimed in Scripture.
Grounded in Love
Wekiva is a place where the bond of Christian friendship and fellowship draws us into deep and meaningful relationships.
By this, everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another. (John 13:35)
As a Christ-centered community, we are shaped by the love of God and neighbor. Our fellowship leads us to welcome one another and to appreciate our commonalities and differences to do God's work. We believe that it is when we share our joys and sorrows that our relationships are truly nurtured. In everything we do, we strive to strengthen the community. We believe that Wekiva is located in this community as a beacon of God's light, designed to bring others into fellowship. With a spirit of belonging, we are called to invite others to find God's saving grace.
MOVEd TO SERVE
Wekiva is called to strengthen its partnerships in the community as we meet the needs of our neighbors and share the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me. (Matthew 25:40)
Wekiva will continue to build relationships with community partners in order to meet the physical and spiritual needs of our neighbors. Wekiva will become a resource in the community that comforts the hurting, alleviates the suffering and advocates for justice. As we grow into agents of grace, we will become aware of the various socio-economic needs of our neighborhood and demonstrate compassionate evangelism by seeing people as God's creations rather than projects. Our strength in fellowship and hospitality will complement the Holy Spirit for growth and mission.
