Mission/Vision/Strategy/Core Values

Our MISSION: WhiteRose Fellowship Church exists to lead both irreligious individuals and Christ-followers toward whole-hearted devotion to Jesus Christ.

Our VISION is to be a Christ-honoring, Spirit-controlled, Biblically-guided people in the Peoria area who invest their lives into:  Loving God, Loving Others, and Making Disciples!

Our STRATEGY is to encourage individuals to love God by following Jesus Christ, to educate Christ's followers to love others, and to equip Christ's followers to make disciples.

 

Our Core Values reflect our Vision...

Loving God:

We believe that loving God is our first priority, as modeled by the life of Jesus.

We believe that loving God is best modeled by a lifestyle of prayer.

We believe that loving God demonstrates itself in a lifestyle of worship.

We believe that loving God is both a personal and a corporate experience.

We believe that loving God demonstrates itself through a corporate worship experience, which uses contemporary and innovative means to address both the churched and unchurched culture of the day with biblically centered preaching.

We believe that loving God is demonstrated when we are faithful stewards with all that God has given us.

 

Loving Others:

We believe that loving others is a non-negotiable biblical command, which Christ's followers must embrace and model.

We believe that loving others is best modeled through serving others.

We believe that loving others can be successfully accomplished as each Christ-follower learns about, embraces, and humbly uses his or her spiritual gifts.

We believe that loving others means intentionally reaching out to both the churched and the unchurched in practical, helpful ways.

We believe that loving others means faithfully implementing the "one another" teachings of Scripture.

We believe that loving others means faithfully practicing the conflict resolution principles taught in God's Word.

We believe that loving others will be the Spirit-empowered result of first loving God.

 

Making Disciples:

We believe that making disciples is not an option for the Christ-follower; it is our commission and it is the Lord's command.

We believe that making disciples means first BEING a disciple who has a changed mind, a changed heart, and a changed life-style, all of which are wholly devoted to Christ.

We believe that making disciples will be embraced and implemented as a value by the church through the teaching and lifestyle example of strong pastoral leadership.

We believe that making disciples and developing servant leaders should always remain a top priority for every pastor and every leader at WhiteRose Fellowship Church.

We believe that making disciples occurs best in small groups, which are designed to positively affect life-change and meet specific needs in a person's life.

We believe that making disciples mandates reaching out with a missions-mindset to our immediate neighbors as well as around the globe.

We believe that making disciples includes the responsibility of planting new churches.
