Our mission statement is what we recognize to be our overall purpose. Our vision is paints a picture of where we are going.
Bringing people closer to God one disciple at a time.
Whispering Pines Church’s vision is to serve and worship God, growing our congregation as a lighthouse in the community.
Through living out our core values — Heartfelt Prayer, Bible-Centered Teaching, Genuine Praise and Worship, Loving and Serving Others with Grace, and Transforming Fellowship — we will fulfill our mission of bringing our community closer to God one disciple at a time.
In 5 years, we want to burst at the seams with people regularly attending worship service from our community (Coal Creek Canyon, some of Nederland, and Blackhawk) who earnestly want to know God more. Quite a few of the new attendees will be new believers. And, most people will attend on a regular basis. (Overall Vision)
Our primary community, Coal Creek Canyon, will know who we are and what our mission is. They will be impacted by the love and grace demonstrated through our interactions and acts of service. This includes our interactions with other churches in our canyon. Several will be so impacted by the love and grace of Christ that we share that they turn their lives to Christ.
We will have a network of small groups committed to growing in the knowledge of God’s Word, prayer, worship, encouraging and supporting one another and serving others, and sharing the Gospel in our community. These small groups will strategically collaborate, be on the same page, and systematically teach the Bible and how to grow in Christ. Most attendees will be a part of one of these small groups as these facilitate deeper growth in Christ. We will also have several age-appropriate small groups for children and youth.
We will have a facility that supports our values and is culturally relevant to our growing attendees. The facility will have the looks and conveniences of most households in Coal Creek, including high-speed internet and other modern technologies. It will have adequate and appropriately laid out space for small group meetings, larger worship and fellowship gatherings, and children’s and youth ministries.
We will have frequent praise and worship and prayer nights that center our hearts on Christ and help to bring others in our community to Christ.
