Vision Study Guide
(.pdf)       Visioning image: Passionately Following Jesus
 

East Goshen Mennonite Church is a community of Anabaptist Christians.  This is not a brand of church or a denominational label as much as it is a movement of Jesus’ followers.  We are Christians who understand our primary call is to be disciples of Jesus who live out the gospel in our everyday lives.  Our vision challenges us to Passionately Follow Jesus, discovering Jesus’ practices of loving, inviting, equipping and living.  We desire to love and look like Jesus in our world.   
 
Passionately Following Jesus

When Jesus called the first disciples (Matt 4: 19) he offered an invitation ("Follow me...") and a promise of transformation ("I will make you...").  These words of Jesus contain the essential definition of what it means to be a disciple.  The word "disciple" literally means "a follower."  As followers of Jesus, we need to model our lives after his: do what he did, and practice what
he practiced.
 
At the end of the gospel of Matthew (28: 19), Jesus speaks to those who years before had responded to his call of “Come and follow”; but now, he tells them to “Go” (the invitation reversed) and “Make disciples” (the transformation passed on).  Disciples making disciples is essential reproduction for the church, which is a growing edge for us.
 
This vision of the church is about movement rather than an establishment fixed in perspective, practice, and place.  If the church is a community of followers who are on the move with Jesus, then we must learn the way of Jesus so that we know the path to follow, and then we must follow with passionate abandon.
