MBIC Mission Statement
vision icons_jesus

We are
JESUS-CENTERED
in all that we do.

We communicate the Gospel – God’s reconciling work through Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection – in all of our environments not just as the entry point to Heaven, but that we ALL need Christ at every turn.

We encourage & equip 
our MBIC family for
ALL-OF-LIFE WORSHIP.

As the Gospel puts down roots in our lives, we desire to grow in surrendering our own lives, preferences, and agendas as we seek God’s glory.

vision icons_prayer

We push PRAYER deep
into our environments.

We will pray as our first response, NOT the option that we turn to after we’ve expended our own resources, energy, and ideas. We tap into a quality of prayer that invites God’s kingdom to come and His will to be done.

We encourage & equip 
our MBIC family in their
MISSIONARY IDENTITIES.

If we are to be the church beyond our four walls – relationships, community, and serving those around us must be constant drivers. For this reason, we encourage and equip our people to courageously reach beyond themselves and to show Christ’s love wherever God might place them.

We create a
CULTURE OF LOVE
welcome & belonging.

We desire to create a culture of welcome at MBIC. To that end, we encourage our MBIC family in the power of creating a culture of grace and hospitality.
