“Engaging, Experiencing and Extending the all-inclusive love of Christ”
As a congregation that values both the mind and the heart, the mission of Brentwood Christian Church is to offer a welcoming environment for those in the greater Springfield area to engage, experience and extend the all-inclusive love of Jesus Christ as we share in dynamic worship, extravagant hospitality, unwavering respect and compassionate care.
We believe connecting to the same Spirit expressed in the life of Jesus Christ has the power to enliven and transform us today. As we ground ourselves in this Spirit, we are reminded that the deepest forms of worship lead to transformative acts of justice, mercy and compassion (Micah 6:8).
We believe each human being is created in the image of God and should be treated with the dignity that affords, no matter what one’s background or status might be. We are called to intentionally welcome and embrace those from all walks of life (Genesis 1:27).
We believe that listening to others and respecting them is a deeply spiritual act. Church is a sacred place where we come together to share our beliefs, doubts, joys and struggles without fear of being rejected by others or by God (John 8:7).
We believe that the church exists for the sake of those it is called to serve. Recalling that we can only love God as much as we love others, we strive to reach out from “our doorsteps to the ends of the earth” (Matthew 25:34-40).
