VISION

2397371
Our vision is simple. It derives from the very words of Jesus in John 12:32, where He is recorded telling His the disciples that, “IF I be Lifted up will draw all people to myself.” In our estimation we have little to offer the great and sovereign king. Without Him we can do nothing. Especially nothing when it comes to His kingdom. So we feel that it is our simple duty to courageously submit ourselves to Jesus and to lift Him UP before all people, and in so, He will draw whomever He desires to Himself. If we Lift Jesus UP HE WILL LIFT others UP!
 

THE GOAL

 To ignite a MULTIPLYING MOVEMENT that begins in New Bern and spreads throughout our surrounding neighborhoods, communities, cities, counties and state. A movement built solely on Jesus, purposed with the Gospel and on mission to SEE PEOPLE SENT AND CHURCHES PLANTED RESULTING IN HEARTS DRAWN TO A LIFTED KING.

Lifting Jesus UP
in our relationships requires that we first 
courageously submit ourselves fully to the Father’s will. To uphold, hang onto, and live in accordance to what His word says we should. This does not happen out of an attitude of obligation, but rather compelled by our desire and love for Jesus that only He can form in us. It is living in His presence, having Jesus make His home in us.

Lifting Jesus UP 
in community is refusing to pass the buck; It is not waiting for someone else to do what you already know should be done. It is dying to self, in favor of seeing what Jesus could do in another. It is counter-cultural, it will not look like the norm.

Lifting Jesus UP
in our mission is
to seek God’s glory in everything we do, every way we live and everywhere we go. Mission happens in the overflow of our worship of God.

VALUES FLOW

 
AT UNION POINT WE SEE OUR VALUES, MUCH LIKE THE CHURCH, A GROUP OF INDIVIDUALS THAT FUNCTION AS THEY WERE MEANT TO WHEN THEY ONLY DO SO TOGETHER. EACH VALUE IS ONLY AS GOOD AS THE OTHER. IN AND OF ITSELF ONE ALONE IS INCOMPLETE.  WHEN ALL COME TOGETHER FUELING OUR LIVES, WE MAKE MUCH OF JESUS. WE BRING GLORY TO GOD.
