Mission, Vision, Our Desire, and Accountability
Every Local Church's MISSION
Our mission is to be a Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20) and Great Commandment (Matthew 22:37-40) driven church (Love God, Love People, Serve, Tell & Teach, and Create Community) that multiples itself on every level. We are focused on the Spiritual level of life and not interested in selling "religious goods and services."
Our Desire: A Spiritual Family of Healthy , Empowered, Biblical Peace-Makers
We believe that we are called to become a welcoming spiritual family, focused on Jesus and healthy spirituality. This means doing life and learning to live in peace with God, with others, with oneself and with creation (money, stuff, nature).
We believe in accountability to the larger church world - just as we call individuals to enter covenant relationships with others - we are part of TWO networks/denominations of churches. These overlap our three streams: Anabaptist, Spirit-filled, and Evangelical.

OUR Mercy Church VISION: BQSG
Belong, Question, Share and Grow!
BELONG: To connect with those who need to belong before believing.
QUESTION: To be a church that encourages people to sort through their questions with freedom. We believe that God welcomes our questions, whether they involve wrestling with difficult Scriptures or seeking to know more about the nature of who He truly is. God is bigger than any question, so we do not need to be closed and afraid of honest conversation.
SHARE: To continually share the life that is given through Jesus Christ in Sioux Falls and around the world.
GROW: To grow as individuals in every way and multiply leaders, small groups, and start new churches.
