Mission and Core Values

Our Mission

Every church is called to make disciples, but churches go about this in many different ways. Each church is uniquely formed by God to carry truth and light to a dark world. We see this specifically in the churches written about in the second and third chapters of Revelation. God spoke to each church in its time and within its culture. The same is true for us at FBC Loganville. We believe that God has called us to “equip families to make disciples.”

We believe that the best place to make disciples is in the home. If discipleship isn’t happening there, it’s likely not happening anywhere else. We realize that not everyone has a spouse or children that puts them in the conventional “family box.” For those people, maybe family is their co-workers. Maybe it’s their inner circle of friends. Whatever the case, our goal is to equip people to disciple those who are closest to them.

We like to say it this way, “There is a difference between the mission that we’re on and the services we provide.” So even though our focus is on discipleship through families, our goal is to help meet the spiritual needs of people in every stage of life through discipleship.

Core Values

We all place high importance on different ideas that ultimately define who we are. Our values, or the fundamental ideas that are at the core of our organization, help shape who we are and who we are becoming. These values are not the only important things, but we believe they are critical in helping us accomplish our mission.

Genuine Faith
Authentic faith is at the very center of who we are and what we are about. Without genuine faith, we can’t make true disciples of Jesus. All we can do is teach good behavior. True discipleship only comes through an active, maturing faith in Christ.

This isn’t a very popular idea in today’s self-centered culture. It’s all about getting and keeping all we can. But Jesus calls us to give up the things we love for the things we love more. Sometimes it’s as simple as giving up “our seat” for some first-time guests. Other times, sacrifice calls us to forego wants to give financially to a cause. It may even mean saying “no” to good things so we can say “yes” to the best things. Whatever it looks like, sacrificial living is a crucial piece of the puzzle for a growing follower of Jesus.

There’s a reason that service is both a part of our values and an expectation of members—because it’s vitally important to us and you. If you’ve spent any time around a volunteer-driven organization, you know that success rises and falls on how well people serve. New Testament writers did not mince words when it came to being others-focused (Col. 3:23-24, Eph. 6:7), and with good reason. Serving others isn’t about them. It’s about Jesus. We should serve others as if we were serving Him.

Spiritual Conversations
We talk about the things we love. It’s the way we’re wired. If you don’t know what you love, ask a close friend or family member. They’ll tell you. Because you talk about it all the time. If we’re on mission to make disciples who follow Jesus, it only makes sense that we spend time talking about Jesus with others. Sometimes it’s a very natural progression, and sometimes it has to be very intentional. Regardless of how they happen, spiritual conversations must be an integral part of our lives.

Throughout Scripture, we see the importance of inviting accountability into our lives for the purpose of becoming more like Jesus (Pro. 27:17, Heb. 10:24-25, Jam. 5:16). The truth of the matter is that ugly things grow in the dark. The more willing we are to bring our lives into the light through consistent pruning from godly relationships, the less likely we are to fall prey to the traps set by the enemy.
