The vision of Bradenton Christian Reformed Church consists of three things: to increase our love for God’s Word, to be faithful in prayer, and to stress the importance of fellowship with God and with one another.
We did not glean this vision from church growth experts or current mega-church methods. Rather, this vision of Word, prayer and fellowship comes from the explosive growth of the early Christian church. Actually, this vision of Word, prayer, and fellowship is found in connection with one of the fastest growing churches in history.
When the Holy Spirit was poured out on Pentecost the result was that three-thousand believers were added to the church in one day. Directly following, we read that “they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching [God’s Word] and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer” (Acts 2:42). In our commitment to Scripture, prayer and fellowship we believe that God will continue to transform our lives, his Church, and this community.
