At Bluff Park Community Church, we long to glorify God by developing disciples who make disciples, planting churches that plant churches, leading leaders who will then lead other leaders, giving birth to movements of leaders. We long to see men and women serving God by developing and using their gifts across multiple churches and settings throughout our city, our region and our world.
As a 3 year old church plant, we are acutely aware that this longing is exponentially greater than our capability to actually pull it off. Which we believe puts us in a great position of dependence on the One who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.
