Who We AreThe Church in 3D
Decision We believe all mankind is born with a need, a need to be reunited with the One who made us - God. Sin separates everyone who does not know God's Son, Jesus, as their Savior from their heavenly Father. We want to help people come to the place in their lives where they make that "decision."
Development We know that a person can only grow and achieve when they experience "development" in a particular area or skill. The same is true for our relationships with God. We grow in understanding of Him, His will for our lives and where we fit in to His big picture when we have "development" opportunities. We strive to help all who will, grow in their relationship with Christ and in all areas where He has given them responsibility.
Deployment We started the Church at Sheppard with a "core team" of more than 60 volunteers from our downtown campus. They, along with our staff and others, worked countless hours to prepare not only the physical building but their hearts to welcome people to this church. "Deployment" takes our "decision" to accept Christ and our "development" in that Christian walk and puts boots on the ground though "deployment" to help others.
We believe that all who Christ redeems, He equips and gives them a place in His work. We strive to help all find their place in ministry and missions.
We hope you'll join us in living life in "3D" here at the Church at Sheppard.
Ultimately the purpose of the church is to lead people to become obedient and reproducing disciples of Jesus Christ, as He commanded in Matthew 28:18-20.
