WHAT WE BELIEVE

Our Mission is to be followers of Jesus Christ for the sake of the world. 

Our Vision is to live out our mission by being a caring and inclusive Christian community. We believe in always growing in faith and servant- leadership. Inspired by the Holy Spirit, we will strive to share the message of Jesus Christ through unconditional love.  

CORE VALUES:

WORSHIP

We believe that making worship our top priority we are committing to continuing to put a large part of our time, resources and engery into offering our congregation and our community worship experiences that are as excellent, authentic, and contextual as we can make them. 

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT 

This is all about building relationships with those individuals, businesses, government agencies, and other organizations which surround the church. By becoming we and positively known by our community, we hope to open doors and smooth the way for our ministries to bring the Kingdom of God into the Suntree- Viera and Melbourne Beach communities. 

MINISTRY TO CHILDREN AND YOUTH

Every ministry of our congregation is positively impacted when our ministry to children and youth is strong and well-integrated into all parts of the life of our congregation. We will continue to emphasize and teach the implementation of intergenerational activities in every area of our congregation's life and ministry. 

DISCIPLESHIP- EQUIPPING OUR LEADERS

Our leadership has recognized that, in the past, we have called and invited people to participate in the leadership of this congregation, but we have not prepared them or equipped them to do what God has called them to do. We hope to design and implement systems that will ensure every staff member and volunteer who serves at Advent will be well-prepared and well- equipped to do what God has called them to do. 

OUTREACH

This encompasses service to those in need, service to our community, and evangelism; proclaiming the Gospel to our community. 

OUR CORE BELIEFS:

JESUS IS LORD

ALL PEOPLE ARE CREATED AND LOVED BY GOD

GOD'S UNCONDITIONAL LOVE AND GRACE THROUGH CHRIST IS FOR ALL
