Vision StatementThe Flint Citadel Vision Statement
We envision that our Flint Citadel will be a healthy, growing corps/church...
Where WORSHIP is the sincere response of our hearts toward God in reverent thanksgiving for His blessing and joyous praise for His salvation. Our worship will be characterized by traditional and contemporary music and other forms, and will be offered in traditional and non-traditional times and formats.
Where EVANGELISM is expressed in the sharing of the Good News of Jesus Christ with our friends, family, and neighbors as we learn to effectively communicate our faith through training in evangelism.
Where GROWTH in our individual and personal spiritual relationship with the Lord is encouraged through:
The study of God's Word in small groups, meeting weekly, and in our homes and other locations, as well as the study of the Word in Sunday School, Corps Cadet programs, and other Christian Education opportunities.
And training in spiritual gifts and leadership. The training of youth for ministry leadership and utilization of youth leaders appropriately in meaningful leadership roles.
Where DIVERSITY of our community is reflected in our worship, our service in the community, and our programs as we venture beyond our comfort zones to reach individuals of all ages and families from all economic and cultural groups.
Where SERVING OTHERS is the expression of our Christian response to the needs of people as our members become personally involved in service through our programs and ministries including our youth character-building programs and other new initiatives to meet community needs.
