Our mission at Fairview Church is “Reaching our neighbors with the true freedom found in full surrender to Christ.” We truly believe that fully surrendering to Jesus will lead to a life of true freedom, joy and purpose. This is the kind of life that God desires for us, and it’s the kind of life that we find by looking to the life of Jesus. One aspect of this “full surrender to Christ” is a life with impact that moves beyond ourselves to impact the people and places around us.
Paul writes in Philippians 2 that Jesus “emptied himself by assuming the form of a servant.” In Mark 10:44-45 Jesus said “But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” If we are followers of King Jesus, then we are to be those who pattern our lives around his example of service and his call to be servants.
In light of that, our vision as a church for 2022 is:
To spend 22,000 hours serving in our spheres of impact.
