Why do we do it that way? Why are we doing that thing at all? Why are we structured this way? I could go on for sure.
We all know the propensity of a young child to ask the question “Why?” While that can get old quick, it is also a great characteristic that instead of learning to focus, we learn to stop asking altogether.
Lately, I have been coming back to this question of why. As we have gone through some significant transition, the answer to this question is obviously important. It is always vitally important, but not always obvious.
So I am going to take time here on this blog over the next while to present why we do what we do here at CapCity. Some of what I post will be specific to us and our context. Some of it will have farther reaching affect. All of it will be based in the vision and direction I believe God has given me as I lead in this context.
My hope is that you enjoy the ride and, maybe, we can grow and learn more about God’s purpose together.
Let me start with the big “Why?” This is what everything comes down to. It is our mission, it is our purpose, it is written in large letters on the wall of our sanctuary. We exist…
…to know Christ and make Him known…
Everything we do, every decision, every initiative, every program must start right there. It all must work toward that end.
All of this is accomplished in four steps:
- Plug In
- Charge Up
- Live Out
- Pass On
Here is an at-a-glance look at the vision of Capital City Church.
