Our Mission & Vision
Communitas International's vision is simple enough:
Transformed Lives Transformed Neighborhoods Transformed World
In 2 Cor. 3:18, Paul says, ‘And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the spirit” (NIV). Paul talks about our very beings transformed into the image of Christ. That transformation root word is metamorphosis, which means to be transfigured into something new, a new kind of being. As we are transformed into a new kind of being what does that do to our household? What does that do to our family? What does that do to our neighbors, and how can that impact the world?
Our mission is the framework to work towards this goal:
We start and shape communities of faith that love like Jesus in their neighborhoods.
What can that look like in your context in your home in your neighborhood and in the world? We endeavor to start communities of faith that love like Jesus. In John 20:21, Jesus says, “Peace be with you! As the father has sent me, I am sending you.”
The first thing Jesus did after His resurrection was to offer an everlasting peace to his disciples, those who had turned their backs on him only hours before, He offered them a lasting covenant of peace and then commissioned them to go and make disciples. This is why we start and shape communities of faith that love like Jesus in their neighborhoods. So that people may come to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ that will transform them into a new being, and they can share their transformation with their neighbors and also the world.
