REALLIFE - LAKE CHELAN MISSION:
To help people who are far from God find REAL LIFE in Christ
WE ACT IN AUDACIOUS FAITH
In order to saturate our valley with the Great News of Jesus, we will think big.
We will set impossible goals, taking bold steps of faith and watching God move.
WE EMPTY OUR POCKETS
We lead the way in generosity.
Our staff and church will go above and beyond to give sacrificially to the God’s work in our valley.
WE NEED YOUR SEAT
In our mission to reach this valley, we will not cater to personal preference.
We are more concerned with the people we are trying to reach than the people we are trying to keep.
WE ARE NOT JUDGE JUDY
We are known for what we are for, not against.
WE KEEP THINGS SIMPLE
Simplicity enables excellence. We’re intent on weeding out complexity and unnecessary hoops to jump through.
WE DON’T CHARGE EXTRA FOR BAGGAGE
We strive to be simply real. Real is the new genuine.
With imperfect messy lives we are pursuing and experiencing a transforming relationship with Jesus and each other.
WE MAKE AN IMPACT THROUGH A SERVOLUTION
Helping people and showing the love of Jesus to our community is most important to us.
We are involved in the community and we serve our valley every way we can.
We want to lead a revolution through serving...A Servolution!
WE CREATE A CULTURE OF CARE
The Church was originally designed to do life together!
People are created to compliment, to enjoy and to help one another.
We are dedicated to fostering relationships by creating a small group culture of care and compassion.
WE TALK LESS AND ACT MORE Faith without action is useless. We strive to be the strongest advocates, God’s love in action, for the hurting,
poor, forgotten, and broken in our communities and around the world; serving the last, the least, and the lost.
WE WEAR A TUXEDO T-SHIRT
We represent God’s best when we bring excellence to all we do.
We like to do things well without expecting unrealistic perfection. We bring our “A-game” to everything we do.
WE GOT GAME
God has given us a huge vision that no one person can complete on their own.
To work as a team towards the vision God has given us we have to lay aside our egos and personal aspirations.
WE ARE SICK, PHAT AND FLY
We will continually search for new and culturally relevant ways to present Christ’s message while
remaining true to Scripture. We believe in delivering truth through creativity, innovation, and risk-taking.
