Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
-Ephesians 3:20-21 NIV
Believe. Imagine. Grow. The totality of these pages can be summed up in those three words or in the acronym: B.I.G. Yes, Beloved, in 2011 God is calling us to Believe, Imagine, and Grow. He wants us to go BIG for Him as we continue to Dare to Imagine!
Proverbs 29:18 says, “Where there is no vision the people perish.” Set forth in this revised Strategic Plan is the course that we will embark upon over the next five years. As you read through this document, you will discover how God confirmed again and again through our focus groups that God wants us to grow. God wants our men to grow. He wants our women to grow. He wants our children to grow, and He wants our families to grow. Thus, the theme or thread repeated in each section underscores this message and confirms that God wants us to go B.I.G.!
We are encouraging you to get connected and share with your others that Bright Hope is:
A Church Where People
Believe, Imagine, and Grow.
We cannot remain the same. We cannot rest on our past successes. We must grow! If I want to grow, then I have to be willing to Believe and Imagine. Can you BELIEVE it? Can you IMAGINE it? If so, then we need YOU to Grow with US!
