The uniqueness of The Village is not in our doctrinal views, organizational charts, or personal charisma. Rather, it is in the way that we apply our convictions to the world in which we live. We believe in majoring on the majors, and minoring on the minors. Jesus clearly stated that evangelism and discipleship are the things the church should be majoring on with his last words to his disciples in Matthew 28:18-20, "18 Then Jesus came near and said to them, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” With this statement, Jesus clarified that all Christians are to build their lives around personal evangelism and personal discipleship. We believe that much of the ineffectiveness and even boredom in the modern church comes from moving away from these twin overriding purposes. As a result, we gear everything we do around equipping people to become effective in evangelism and discipleship.
