Doctrinal Statement:

Our Beliefs We believe . . . that the Bible is the inspired Word of God. It is the complete revelation of His will for salvation and the only unfailing rule of faith and practice for the Christian life. We believe . . . in one God, Creator of all things, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit; and that these three are co-equal and co-eternal. We believe . . . in the full deity and full humanity of Jesus Christ; His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit; His virgin birth; His sinless life; His death on a cross; His bodily resurrection; His ascension to the right hand of the Father; and His personal, imminent return. We believe . . . that man was created by and for God; that by man’s disobeying God, every person incurred spiritual death, which is separation from God; and that all people are sinners by nature and practice. We believe . . . the Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins and that salvation comes through faith alone, in Christ alone; all who believe in Him are declared righteous and are, therefore, in the right relationship with God. We believe . . . in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit indwelling all believers and thus enabling and empowering the life and ministry of the believer.

Core Values:

God’s Glory: His desire to be known the world over for who He is and what He has done.

The Church: God’s primary instrument for reaching the world.

Partnership: Meaningful relationships bound by a shared vision, characterized by grace and respect.

Excellence: Doing the best we can with the resources God has entrusted to us.

Description:

Sixteen:Fifteen is church missions coaching. Like any good coach, a church missions coach is someone who helps your team… ◾Understand its purpose. ◾Assess its current situation. ◾Set clear goals. ◾Develop a game plan. ◾Train and prepare to implement the plan. ◾Execute the plan. ◾Make mid game corrections as needed. ◾Assess the outcome and repeat. Your Sixteen:Fifteen coach will come alongside you for the duration of the coaching process. He will work with your church leadership, acting as a guide through the 3D Process (Discover, Design, Deploy). Your dedicated coach will assist you in developing and executing your missions vision. And like a coach, he will not only mentor and train your church, but will be available and accessible to walk with you throughout the entire process… encouraging, supporting, and advising. Our coaches consider it a privilege to join your church in taking Christ to the nations. The 3D process Our process of 3D—Discover, Design, and Deploy—is not a one-time event but a highly customizable process. Discover This phase involves establishing a biblical foundation for your church’s missions mandate, assessing your present efforts, and seeking the Lord’s direction in crafting a mission statement for the global outreach of your church. The coach will guide you in developing a set of core values, and in discovering and articulating a unique missions vision to align with God’s heart for the nations and compel your church to action. Finally, you will assess together your readiness to implement this missions vision. Design Based on your discoveries, your group will begin to develop a strategic missions plan in order to realize your unique vision. This plan will include broad sets of opportunities, making it possible for everyone in your congregation to be involved. In addition, we will help you build strong partnerships with agencies whom we have hand-picked because they embrace the active role of the local church in missions. these agencies will provide expertise and resources which your church will need in order to be effective on the field. Deploy Finally, your vision is set in motion, partnerships are established, and the whole church is mobilized. The Great Commission becomes integrated into every aspect of body life… to pray, visit, teach, multiply, fund, and plant. What difference can one church make? There are over 6,000 unreached people groups…over half of them engaged by no one. There is no one church, no one mission agency, and in some cases not even one Bible… no one has yet taken responsibility to tell them of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ When more than 2,000,000,000 people lack access to the Gospel 2,000 years after the mandate was given, the status quo is increasingly unacceptable to the body of Christ. This discontent is the work of God’s Spirit as He awakens a wave of churches to their unrealized missions potential. This growing movement is acknowledged by churches and mission agencies alike. Both play an important role in the completion of the Great Commission. But local churches, having long been relegated to an impersonal involvement, are now answering the call with a rekindled sense of urgency and a new passion to reclaim the Great Commission, mobilize and finish the task. However many church leaders may not know where to start and often lack the experience needed to become central players in reaching the unreached.
