(Original 2002; Reviewed- Council Meeting- November 21, 2013)
This mission, set forth in the Great commissions; though never fully understood, may be defined as having an inner and outer direction.
- The inner mission of the church is to nurture it members, seeking to ever bring them more and more to the stature of maturity in Christ.
- The outer mission of the church is to be related, as God’s instrument, to the problems an the needs of the world.
These two functions of the church are archived to the extent that they are under-girded with stewardship of time, talent an material treasure.
The vision of the Farmington Bethel Church of the Brethren family is to grow physically and spiritually, and to be united by love, peace, and harmony under the direction of our Lord Jesus Christ.
