WORDS FROM SR PASTOR DERRICK JOYCE

GREETING MESSAGE

Our mission is leading people in a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. Please join our church and start a new life.

8 Practices of Fruitful & Effective Churches

Jesus Centered

At the Monument, Jesus revolves around everything we do and everything we do revolves around Jesus! Our focus must be intently on Jesus and what would Jesus do as we make decisions that impact the Kingdom of God. We will see clearly in our daily walk because we see Jesus as the center of our universe. As we make Jesus the center of all that is His love will overflow from our life to the lives around our life.

Clear Mission

  • At the Monument, our mission determines our reality. We have a very clear mission as the church that loves to love with a mind for missions and ministry. Our mission is to SAVE the lost, STRENGTHEN the weak, HELP the poor, and LIVE in harmony as God’s people one with another. We must strive to EXALT the Savior, EQUIP the Saints, and EVANGELIZE the Sinner.

Great Expectations

At the Monument, we believe faith power works wonders! We have a culture of expecting God to do exceeding, abundantly above all we ask, think or imagine. We believe in walking in the kind of faith that will believe God for anything! We expect God’s best and give God our best.

Radical Hospitality

At the Monument, there are no big I’s and little U’s. The true measure of our church is based on how we treat all people. Seeing people through the eyes of love and touching people with hands of compassion allows us to demonstrate radical hospitality from our parking lot to the pulpit. Expect to receive a warm welcome and tender love when visiting the Monument.

Passionate Worship

At the Monument, it is with a heart of thanksgiving we praise and worship God without exclusion, illusion, or seclusion. We are wide open in our praise to the only wise God. With award winning worship leaders in the music industry, our passionate worship aims to bless the Lord, shift heaven, and liberate hearts toward God.

Aggressive Outreach

At the Monument, evangelism and outreach activities is a hallmark of our heart mark. Through our commitment to loving God, it is demonstrated by giving birth to God in our live and becoming midwives of divinity in the lives of others. We host mission teams from across the nation to accelerate the effectiveness and aggression of our outreach.

Extravagant Givers

At the Monument, it is because of insurmountable gratitude we have become extravagant givers. Our giving provides the breath of God’s love through our weekly food pantry, community clothes closet, nursing home ministry, bread ministry, tithes and offerings. We aim to reveal Jesus’s divine love for humanity through the expression of our gifts of time, talents, and treasure.

Religiously Pray

At the Monument, we believe faith is the key and pray unlocks the door. More things have been wrought by prayer than can ever be imagined. We pray religiously to hear God’s heartbeat, to be His mouthpiece and to move His hand in the affairs of humanity. We believe prayer is the prime mover of God.
