Vision

In Mark 1:17, Jesus calls His first followers, with the simple invitation “Come, follow me and I will make you fishers of Men”. At the end of His ministry, Jesus sent these followers to “go and make disciples of all nations." These shape the basic calling of those who would follow Jesus in every generation.

The Church is a movement of ordinary people learning to live as disciples of Jesus and to engage in His mission of restoration in the world, proclaiming the good news of the Kingdom of God and following His ways. 

BASIC grew out of a desire to simplify, and hold to these base-line priorities- to help people intentionally follow Jesus and make disciples. In a culture where the church is increasingly on the margin, we are wanting to see a community that boldly lives as disciples who make disciples, who embody Gods beautiful kingdom to the community around them, and who see new churches started as disciples are made.
