Our MissionOur Vision & Core Values
We Love. We Serve. We Send.
To see individuals and families transformed by the gospel of Jesus Christ into
a vibrant community of disciples that impacts Orlando and our world.
What we believe determines what we value and what we value determines how we live.
First Alliance Church has developed 7 Core Values that flow out of our passion for Jesus Christ.
These Core Values are the motivation behind the mission.
WE LOVE GOD
This is our greatest calling, to love God. We express this through worship, through
prayer, and service to Him. We love God with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength. All
that we are and all that we have belong to Him.
Deuteronomy 6:5, Joshua 22:5, Luke 10:27
WE LOVE ALL PEOPLE
Because every man, woman, and child matters to God, they matter to us. As a
community, we impact the world by holding out God’s love in the most creative ways
possible. Jesus loved the world and so will we.
John 3:16, 1 John 4:11-12,19-21
WE MAKE DISCIPLES OF JESUS
When Jesus sent out His first disciples, He called them to go and make disciples of all
nations. We believe this is the responsibility of every Jesus follower. In response to this
call, we’re learning how to be and make disciples who shine the light of Jesus where we
live, work, and play
Matthew 5:14-16, Matthew 28:19-20, Mark 8:34-35
WE GROW IN COMMUNITY
God calls us to have deep, authentic relationships with one another. We encourage, we serve, we forgive, we share, we honor, we bless and we show mercy to each other. We want to be a healthy community of Christ followers that grows together in discovering who God has made us to be and how He wants us to serve Him and each other.
Acts 2:42,46, Romans 12:4-8, Colossians 3:12-17, Hebrews 10:24-25
WE LISTEN TO GOD’S WORD
We believe that God still speaks to us through His Word. Engaging in Scripture
transforms and shapes every area of our lives. It is through His Word that we train and
equip every follower of Jesus to carry out God’s mission of redeeming the world.
Psalm 119:33-40, Romans 12:2, Psalm 25:-4-5, 2 Timothy 3:16-17
WE RELY ON HIS SPIRIT
We are convinced it is only by the Holy Spirit’s empowerment that we can fully express
Jesus’ love, compassion, and mercy to those who do not know Him. The Holy Spirit
connects us to the will of God and moves us to accomplish what we cannot see or do
on our own. This happens as we surrender our lives to the lordship of Jesus Christ and
cultivate His presence through spiritual disciplines.
1 Corinthians 2:4-5, Acts 1:8, John 15:5-8, Romans 5:5
WE LIVE BY FAITH
Faith is a gift God has given to us to believe and trust in Him. Achieving His purposes
means taking faith-filled risks. This always involves change.
Romans 1:16-17, 2 Corinthians 5:7, Ephesians 2:8-9, 3:16-19, Hebrews 11:6
