Our Vision: 

Exalting the Savior, Equipping the Saints, Evangelizing the Sinner

Our Mission to achieve our vision:

Making disciples to reach generations for Jesus' glory.

The great commission (Matthew 28:18-20) mandates the church to "make disciples." Disciples are learners, followers, and students of Jesus. Disciple making through Amissville is experienced through the preaching of the expository preaching of the living Word of God, Bible study, fellowship and prayer, and through missions and ministries.  The Bible exhorts the believer to be an ambassador for Christ and His kingdom. The Christian has the ministry of reconciliation as the Apostle Paul instructed in II Corinthians 5:17f. 

 


At Amissville, this mission is best displayed in our communities, where we daily have the opportuntiy of living out the Gospel to those around us. When followers of Jesus leave their homes, they enter the mission field. In addition, the Holy Spirit gifts followers so they can effectively shine their light before others so they can see their good works which glorifies the Father in heaven (Matthew 5:16). 



Reconciliation with God.

God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him (John Piper).  Reconciliation with God creates a complete satisfaction in life. Jesus taught the lady at the well as recorded in John 4, drink from this well and you will continually be thirsty. But drink from Me and your thirst will be quenched or satisfied. Our sinful nature drinks from the world's wells to find peace, hope, joy, and love. Like the lady in John 4, she could not find these jewels of life from the five men she thought she loved. These enteral gems are only found in our redemptive life in Jesus Christ who we have been reconciled t. 

Reconciliation with others.

Humility before God is absent unless we have humility towards one another (Andrew Murray - "Humility." If we don't love one another, we cann't say we love God . The "Great Commandment" Jesus gave His disciples was to love one another to prove that they were His disciples (John 13).  Jesus is emphatic that a Christian is to forgive (Matthew 6). Sadly, unforgiveness is the cancer of the church today. 


However at Amissville, we strive to love each other unconditionally. To show grace to each other just as Jesus displayed His grace towards us. We realize our sinfulness, thus we realize the greatness of God amazing grace. The healing balm for the cancer within the church is applying grace to one another.

The Amissville Family:

A story of God's amazing grace.

Amissville was organized on December 29,1888 and the current location was purchased for 300 dollars. The church began with 36 members and within a year the membership had grown to 91. Through the decades, Amissville has been faithful to the advancement of the kingdom of God. The church expanded  structurally and numerically over the decades as well. Currently, the church is revisioning its place in the kingdom of God of how best to make disciples to reach the generations for Jesus' glory.
