10 Towns Church's Purpose is to

love God, love others, 

and as we go make disciples.

The Irreducible Core


A church can do many things, but at the core the primary purpose of any church should be to love God, love others, and to make disciples.


Love God

The most important commandment is this: ‘Listen, O Israel! The LORD our God is the one and only LORD. And you must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength. (Mark 12:29,30).

This is the first and greatest commandment. Loving Him with all that we are and in all that we do is an imperative part of true and authentic transformation in this life. When God changes you - it lasts.


Love Others

The second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ No other commandment is greater than these.” (Mark 12:31)

Loving Him and loving others are what allows a Christian to move from religious to reconciler. This is true religion - being a blessing.


Make Disciples

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. (Matthew 28:19,20)

Jesus leaves us with the Great Commission, which is to Make Disciples as we go.

Personality

Every local church has a personality.  Personality is more than words and church personality should be intentional.  Here at 10 Towns we strive to have these five traits in our church personality.



SAFE - We will make our best effort to intentionally create an atmosphere of trust and safety with love, honesty, and forgiveness.

PEACEFUL - We will have the attitude to take the fish and leave the bones. We will be people who demonstrate grace toward others and respond with love and calmness

ACCEPTING - We will accept people for who they are and not what they can or cannot offer the church

COMMUNITY - We will intentionally create an atmosphere of life on life discipleship.  

EXCITEMENT - We are excited to gather together for worship, service, or recreation in either large or small groups.
