To be a Christ-follower is to be on mission. God himself became a missionary in Jesus Christ, entering our world and dwelling among us. Likewise, the local church and its members have a responsibility to embrace a missional lifestyle; going as ambassadors of Christ, declaring and demonstrating the beauty of Jesus in our homes, neighborhoods, schools, and workplaces. We have a vision to see North Alabama transformed by the power of the gospel. This happens not as we all quit our jobs and become vocational ministers, but rather as we each faithfully approach our normal, everyday lives with prayerful, gospel intentionality.
The gospel informs how we serve one another. We believe that the overflow of a disciple's life is one of service. Furthermore, we believe that serving is at the very heart of the gospel. We know this, because Christ himself did not come to be served, but to serve and give his life as a ransom for many. Our desire is to see every member at Capshaw engaged in ministry.
