Mission and vision

Our mission is to bring the life-changing mercy, grace, and authenticity of the historic Christian faith to bear on the city of Spokane.Our vision is that we would launch the first of many outwardly-faced, Christ-centered EPC congregations in Spokane, equipping and encouraging believers to be active participants in the mission of God in the world.


In Romans 1:16, Paul says, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.” Because we believe that the gospel is God’s power to change any person or institution, we have the responsibility and courage to proclaim it boldly.
According to the EPC’s Book of Order, “It is the primary mission of the local church to evangelize, making disciples by extending the gospel both at home and abroad, leading others to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, providing for the nurture of that faith that all might
worship the true God and grow in grace and in sanctification” (4-3). We are committed, wholeheartedly, to this mandate.
Christians should not simply stand above or against or with their community, but should also stand as agents of God for their community and its welfare.
Only as the Gospel permeates our hearts and minds, will it permeate our neighborhoods. Just as Jesus reconciles us to God, so we ought to stand as agents of social, economic, and racial reconciliation. Church, from this perspective, ceases to be a temporary escape from our unbelieving neighbors and becomes, instead, a place to which we are constantly welcoming them.
In the future, we hope to facilitate new communities of faith with our same gospel-driven values, not only in and around Spokane, but throughout the entire Pacific Northwest, the U.S. and, even, the world.
