The Church Vision and Mission

Applying to the body of the Church

The Coosa Valley Church of God is a church making an impact on our community by reaching out and showing God’s love in a practical way and by providing a nurturing environment where God can be fully experienced!
It’s not about us, it’s all about HIM!!!
The spirit of the Coosa Valley Church of God fellowship is to come together in one accord to worship and praise God in Spirit and in truth. The Coosa Valley Church of God family is a body of believers who are concerned about the spiritual welfare of each individual. We are loving, encouraging and praying people who genuinely care about the needs of our brothers and sisters in Christ. Above all, we desire to see the lost saved and brought into fellowship with God, through faith in Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Ghost.
We enjoy the freedom of Pentecostal worship in gospel hymns and praise worship offered up to God. We endeavor to seek God’s direction for every ministry of the Church. Our prayer is that God will always bless us in the things we do in His service.
The Vision and Mission of Coosa Valley Church of God are carried out under the following four principles:
  • WORSHIP ~ We want to provide an atmosphere where people can come and express themselves and feel the presence of God in their lives.
Psalm 100:1-2 ~ “Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Serve the lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
  • LEARNING ~ We want to provide a place where people can learn more about God’s Word and have a better understanding of the doctrines and principles revealed in the Scriptures.
2 Timothy 2:15 ~ “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
  • CARING ~ We want to develop an atmosphere of unity and love. We want to reach out to each other in the body of Christ and provide support, encouragement and edification.
1 Corinthians 12:25 ~ “That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another.
1 Peter 5:7 ~ “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
  • SHARING ~ We want to reach as many souls as possible with the gospel of Jesus Christ through any means available.
John 9:5 ~ “As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
How else can we apply the Church Vision and Church Mission to the body of the Church?
  • The health of any group is tied to unity.
  • Unity only works when individuals have made a decision to put the good of the group before his or her own needs.
Ephesians 4:1-3 ~ “I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, with all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; endeavouring to keep the  unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
