Church of Light and Salt
Mission and Vision
Provide English Worship services, fellowship, and representation as led by Christ, under the direction of Dr. Randy Falkner, English Ministry Leader, as sponsored by the Church of Light and Salt and subject to the authority and leadership of Senior Pastor Joseph Chang.
Our missional vision is to present the Gospel of Jesus Christ in English to every person in the world and to make disciples of all the nations, and specifically to minister to persons within the Church of Light and Salt who speak English as a first language, English speaking spouses and children of members who speak Korean as a first language, and to any member or visitor of the church regardless of their first language who the Holy Spirit leads to attend an English language worship service.
Being fully committed to the proposition that Jesus Christ is the only hope for the world, and believing that every believer yearns for spiritual renewal and Christ-centered living, and recognizing Jesus’ instruction to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, we, the Church of Light and Salt - English Ministry, covenant with each other and all who are willing, under God:
To make the kingdom of God the priority in our personal lives.
To dedicate the energies and resources of the English Ministry in seeking first Jesus and His kingdom.
To cooperate with each other, the members and leadership of the Church of Light and Salt Korean Ministry, and the family of Southern Baptists as we pursue Christ-Centered Biblical kingdom principles and practices.
To give ourselves to servant leadership that will assist and facilitate faith development and maturity.
To pray for the lost to know Jesus, and for the saved to grow and mature in faith, to repent as led by God, and be in God’s will wherein He will forge a spiritual renewal marked by holy living, sacrificial service, and global witness.
To this end, we affirm the English Ministry will, in all things, seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness.
We depend on the transforming power of the Holy Spirit, the Word of God, and prayer to make us more like Jesus Christ.
We stand together in the truth of God’s inerrant Word, celebrating the faith once for all delivered to the saints.
We work together in love for the sake of the Gospel.
We consider others more important than ourselves.
We tell one another the truth in love and do what we say we will do.
We value Born-Again Believers of all generations and embrace our responsibility to pass this charge to a rising generation in every age, faithful until Jesus comes.
We believe the local church is given the authority, power, and responsibility to present the Gospel of Jesus Christ to every person in the world.
We join other Born-Again Believers for the Gospel, the Kingdom of Christ, and the glory of God.
