The Vision of "The Park"
The word “Vision” is a common place word in our everyday vocabulary. “I can’t see!” These words are often screamed by those in dire circumstances: frantically feeling one’s way in the dark; experiencing a sudden and frightful loss of one’s eyesight; straining to see the highway in a torrential rainstorm; and other similar situations of life.
At the South Park Church of God (known also as “The Park”), our Vision Statement intends to provide guidance to all we seek to do in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Scripture declares that without a vision, the people perish. Vision speaks to “seeing our best future.” Vision is forward-looking, helping us to focus resolutely on our goal or purpose. Vision is something that is first seen “behind our eyelids” before we see it “physically in front of our eyes.”
This is our Vision Statement at The Park:
To cultivate compassionate and merciful servants who embody and live out the values of God’s kingdom toward all people in all areas of life.
Matthew 3:2; 5:7;
Mark 1:14-15; 10:41-45
We look to our future, seeing ourselves as walking alongside others in their distress, and desiring to help them. We look to our future, being those servants who embody the values and characteristics as God’s kingdom people. We look to our future, being those compassionate and merciful servants toward all people in all areas of life.
Praises be to our God for the Vision!
