OUR MISSION: WE WILL NOT STOP ONE INCH SHORT OF THE LIFE JESUS DIED FOR US TO LIVE!
OUR HEADLINE: JESUS WINS
Jesus is better. We believe that Jesus came that we may have life and have it to the full. That life awaits us in heaven, but is also available here and now. ACC does not simply exist to lead people to forgiveness of their sins. ACC exists that everyone connected to the life of our church would step into the fullness of life Jesus purchased for them on the cross. The same power that raised Jesus from the grave is available to us today. Our hope is that people would leave behind not only their sins but also mediocrity, lukewarm living, and half-hearted cultural Christianity. Our church specifically aims to empower people to step into the life Jesus died for them to live. Because after all, JESUS WINS.
OUR VISION: CHURCH WITHOUT WALLS
The specific vision God has given us is to be a “Church Without Walls.” ACC launched in March of 2014 through conversations in an Ace Hardware Store (not at all a typical place for the inception of a church!). However, our church is not defined by the place we are meeting, it is defined by the mission we are called to as people. We are people, not a place. We are a movement, not a meeting.
We want to be a church that breaks down walls between where people are and where Jesus is. We want to be a church that knocks down any and every boundary that might hinder others or ourselves from experiencing the abundant life God has for us. Our vision of a “Church Without Walls” will always be ongoing and evolving, but it will remain the goal we continue to strive for, and the specific calling we believe God has on ACC.
OUR FOCUS: HERE & NOW
As a church, we always want to stay present and available to what God is doing through ACC right here and right now. That means that while we will honor and remember the past, we will not dwell there and miss what God has next. And while we are expectant in anticipation for the future, we will never allow what we cannot see to keep us from being faithful in the here and now. Realizing that our community will walk through certain seasons requires us to maintain focus on where we are. Currently, ACC is focused on creating a permanent location off Hamilton Rd. for more of the Auburn community to be included in the life of the church. You can partner with our current Here & Now initiative through prayer as we want to make sure Jesus remains the center of our building process. You can also partner financially by giving to ACC today. We believe that extravagant generosity will enable us to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine!
