To inspire more love for Jesus
To become a Spirit-filled family of God that sanely lives in the reality of Jesus' kingship over the world.
The gospel — the good news of Jesus Christ’s life, death, and resurrection for us — births eternal life, nourishes daily life, and flourishes all of life. So our mission (what we do) is to help deepen peoples' appreciation of Jesus through education, community, and mercy. Our vision (where we're headed) is to become who the Holy Spirit says we already are: adopted children of God being prepared to rule with Christ over His in-breaking kingdom. To live otherwise (e.g., selfishly as if we're poor) would be insanity.
Being born again in our secular age requires learning how to live an enchanted life again as a child of God. So by the power of the Spirit, we grow in the knowledge of Christ who makes us more attune to the benevolence of God and the giftedness of life.

It's about learning to be the hands and feet of Christ while growing his heart.
Blood is thicker than water, and Christ's blood is thicker than that. So we grow in Jesus' love for his family that is characterized by a remarkable commitment to one another. In that way, we testify to the truth of God's adoption of us.
As the Good Samaritan did for us, we do for others.
