OUR MISSION PHILOSOPHY

The Water’s Edge Network prioritizes the work that God is doing in and through our campus churches. We focus on a God who desires Hope and Life for all of His children. We focus upward, deepening our relationship with Him. We focus inward, developing relationships with each other where care, challenge and celebration are common. We also focus outward, pursuing opportunities to holistically care for the needs of our world. Our mission to Amplify the Hope and Life that only Jesus brings is pursued With God, In Community and On Mission.

As Kingdom-driven churches we exist to usher in the rule and reign of God on earth as it is in heaven. Our Gospel mission is a great commission because God’s rule pushes back evil. We see five primary ways this evil is expressed. We call these five expressions the, ‘Five Global Giants.’ A uniting feature of our network strategy is the commitment to address the Five Global Giants through a philosophy we have named, AMPED.
