Every church needs to have a purpose statement that answers the question, “why do we exist?” At Tucson Church International, we filter every idea, program, and budget request through our purpose statement. If what we plan doesn’t help us meet our purpose, then we don’t do it.

Our purpose at Tucson Church International is summarized in a single statement:

“To Reach people with the Good News of Jesus that they might be Raised into disciples, and Released into their purpose.”

Our statement of purpose is based on two teachings of Jesus:

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20

We proclaim him, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone perfect in Christ. To this end I labor, struggling with all his energy, which so powerfully works in me. Colossians 1:28-29

Tucson Church International exists:

• To worship God with sincere expression.
• To share the Good News of Jesus with others.
• To connect with other believers in meaningful relationships.
• To prepare disciples to fulfill their purpose.
• To encourage leaders in their God-given destiny.
