a Unique Place with Unique Values
From its beginning in 2013, Intentional Love has had a history of
ministering to Fuquay Varina, Wake County and even around the world.
It’s built-in; it’s our distinct “DNA.” It’s the things we value,
strive for and experience daily, and it’s been in us from the beginning.
Every successful journey starts with a plan and an intended destination.
That’s why we need to be able to answer, “Where is God taking us?”
Intentional Love and Fuquay Varina are at a crossroad unlike any other time in history.
What’s our next right step?
We are on a journey to discover and apply the vision God has given us.
It’s the intersection where our unique gifts and resources meet the unique
challenges and opportunities of Fuquay Varina, Wake County and the Carolinas.
WHAT ARE WE DOING?
Our mission is to Intentionally Love God, Intentionally Love Each Other, and Intentionally Love The Lost.
The first part of Intentional Love’s Vision is the mission. The mission is the guiding compass of the church. It gives us direction and points everyone in that direction.
Our mission statement may sound simple, but to us, it guides everything we do and flows from the mission of Jesus himself as he described in the Great Commandment in Matthew 22:37-39 and the Great Commission in Matthew 28:19-20.
WHY ARE WE DOING IT?
Our Values make up the second part of our Vision Cross as they are the motivational flame
of the church. They are the shared convictions
that guide actions.
We will persevere in faithfulness to God and
His Word, to one another, to the family, and to our shared mission.
We are truthful in our communication, transparent in our relationships, and conduct ourselves in a manner that is worthy of Christ.
We are committed to being big-hearted in our relationships, stewardship, and involvement in the
mission of Christ.
We believe we are better together.
We strive to give God
our very best! Diligence, responsibility and faithfulness are essential ingredients to succeed in anything God has tasked us to do, as demonstrated
~ Daniel 5:14, 6:3
