HNC will be a holistic, diverse ministry for the entire family, grounded in the Word of God; in order to Evangelize the lost, Disciple the believer and Empower the discipled.

Creatively Implement the Great Commission:

Jesus summarized his purpose for being on earth in Luke 19:10. He said “For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost”. In his final instructions he made the purposes of the church clear. “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you” (Matt. 28:19-20). Therefore, our vision includes pursuing the lost in the most culturally relevant format. This in-cludes implementing Christ’s commission in both and innovative and creative manner to the unchurched of our community.

Building a Growing Community of Churches:

Unchurched people are nine times more likely to come to a new church rather than an older, established church (Christianity Today). We feel that the best means of impacting our area with the trans-forming message of Christ is to partner or plant culturally relevant churches, like Holy Nation, around our community. For us this means using resources which God has equipped us with, (prayer, personnel, finances and know-how) to build bridges into communities which need the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Committed to Dynamic Worship:

Because our vision is to extend the transforming grace of Jesus Christ, we believe that the most fundamental relationship people can have is an active, living relationship with God through Jesus Christ his Son ( John 10:10; Romans 6:23). Our worship services reflect this by promoting creative, inspiring, and authentic worship which demonstrates that God is living and active in this generation; therefore, the most contemporary medium is used to express our worship.

Extending His Transforming Grace:

By the grace of God, the Memphis, Tennessee area will be transformed in 10 to 15 years, due to the influence of the Spirit of God through the lives of our people who are devoted to extending the trans-forming grace of Jesus Christ. It is our vision that the members of Holy Nation will take Christ into homes, marketplaces, political arenas, and educational settings. Our worship services reflects our vi-sion by being a sanctuary for Holy Nation members to bring their friends, relatives and co-workers.

Reach the Unchurched:

Finally, our vision includes the intentional pursuit of reaching those who have stopped attending, or have never attended a church. In other words, those who have not experienced God’s transforming grace. Placing a vision in print is somewhat like attempting to hold water in your hand. It is nearly impossible! A vision is something that is caught rather than taught. It has been described as a mental picture of the future which finds its realization in the hands of the one who owns the vision. It is our desire that the Holy Nation vision becomes your vision; something you “own” and take great pride in seeing fulfilled. In essence, our vision is not something that you can see, but something you must be.

I believe in no uncertain terms that this vision with your help will become reality. Why? Because it is inspired by God!
