Just before Jesus ascended into heaven, He said, “I’m going to give you the Great Commission,” MT 28:19-20, (NLT) “Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you.”
Jesus said, “I don’t ever want my followers to be fuzzy about what I’ve called you to do, I want you to:
Lead people into faith,
Disciple them into maturity of faith.
Empower them to GO and spread the Gospel message to all the world!
And so Hobart Assembly’s Mission Statement reads this way:
“To take people who are far from God and turn them into committed followers of Jesus Christ.”
Jesus called us to go out and spread the Word of God. We believe that this is not done enough. We make it a priority to go outside of the church walls to reach the lost and broken. We hope that you will join us in doing so.
Purposely cultivating hunger for God’s manifest presence and openness to the Holy Spirit experiences deepens our friendship with God and the awareness that we carry His presence for the sake of the world. As a lifestyle, we focus on Him while we minister and attempt to say what God is saying and do what He is doing.
We believe loving, open, honest, and vulnerable relationships should permeate every aspect of our ministry. We believe Christ-focused small groups are the best environgment for developing these relationships and promoting individual spiritual growth.
We believe God has uniquely created and gifted each believer for serving the Body of Christ. Fulfillment of a person's role within the Kingdom of God is accomplished with excellence, efficiency, and effectiveness when people function in their area of giftedness.
Strong families are the backbone of every prospering society and essential to any healthy, vibrant church. Because of this, we invest heavily into our youth and children and in the health of marriage and family relationships.
At Hobart Assembly we are committed to developing fully devoted followers of Christ who are sensitive to the Spirit's leading and grow up into spiritual maturity in their understanding and application of the Word of God in their every day lives.
