We envision the Christian community in the Pioneer valley living an abundant life. This Christ-centered life affects each aspect of living. Good stewards meet their personal goals, and there are harmonious fellowships among churches. This health-conscious Christian body is concerned with its physical and mental well-being, as well as spiritual. Strong families abiding by biblical principles are the foundation of thriving neighborhoods. Believers support businesses owned by other Christians. These active members enjoy an array of Christian activities beyond the walls of their local churches. The Spirit-filled believers enjoy their abundant life so much that they are eager to invite seekers to follow Christ.
We envision a generation of young Christians with zeal, energy, and conviction. They are sincere believers who embrace this vision and are committed to continuing it for generations to come.
