Today, the Western church seems to be caught in an irresolvable tension between being appealing while also being a disciplined and discipling community. While we affirm the church's desire to be warm and welcoming, we also desire a church community capable of confronting principalities and powers; a community that serves as an effective witness to God's vision to transform all things.

This vision, and our own experiences with Christ's transforming love, carry us into three tiers of work, as expressed in our mission statement:

Mission statement

Our mission statement gives substance to our vision and helps us stay focused when setting goals and making choices about how we function in our context

Statement of faith

Our core values flow from our beliefs and shape how we carry out God's mission.

Obedience "My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me" (John 10:27).

At the heart of EMM ministry is joyful, relational obedience to the voice of God. Our obedience is rooted in thankfulness to God, who pursues humanity with love and forgiveness.

Well-being "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28).

We seek the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being of everyone in the EMM community - workers and those whom they serve around the world, staff, and stakeholders.

Multiplication "But the word of the Lord continued to grow and to be multiplied" (Acts 12:24, NASB).

When every disciple of Jesus goes and makes disciples across the street or around the world, the church experiences multiplication (rather than simple addition), and the kingdom of God expands throughout the earth.
