As to the Mission and Vision Statements at Northwest Tampa Church of Christ
We have all heard the adage; “If one doesn’t know where they are going it doesn’t matter how they get there.” The point is if you don’t have a goal of where you want to end your life journey you don’t have anything to guide you. The Mission Statement and Vision Statement you see below make it clear Northwest Tampa Church of Christ has a clear understanding of what we are here for and what our vision is of what we will be.
Our Mission Statement and Vision Statement are the product of several months of praying and deliberation on the part of the elders and ministers supplemented by contributions of a num- ber of the members of our congregation. Our members contributions were responses to some questions soliciting their views on various aspects of our church life and their thoughts on how we could strengthen the spiritual fiber of our church family.
We are grateful for the prayerful thoughts that came out of these responses and they not only helped with formulating the Mission and Vision statements but will help us as we examine our education and mission ministries in the immediate future.
We believe these words will be fruitful in guiding our work and our ministries here at North- west and believe they will help us fulfill the words found in John 13:15, “By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.” The Elders
Mission Statement of the Northwest Tampa Church of Christ
The Northwest Tampa Church of Christ exists to help seekers of Christ experience God's grace and become fully devoted followers of Jesus (Matt. 28:18-20).
Vision Statement of the Northwest Tampa Church of Christ
The vision of the leadership and membership of the NWTCC is to "love God with our whole
heart, mind, soul and strength and to love our neighbor as ourselves" (Matthew 22:37).
We believe we can accomplish this vision of "loving God with our whole heart, mind and strength" individually through our private times of devotion with Him as we pray to Him and study His word. Corporately we can achieve this vision by coming together for periods of wor- ship, Bible study and fellowship which enables us to demonstrate our love for Him through our praise. Our time together also builds up the faith of each member as we grow closer as the family of God.
Our prayer is that we can accomplish the "loving of our neighbor as ourselves" through the many outreach programs we endeavor to carry out each year at Northwest Tampa Church of Christ. We strive to help each member activate their faith by being a servant. It is our strong belief that we are never more like Jesus than when we are serving others. So whether we are feeding the homeless, making school supplies available for children, providing clothes and basic needs for those less fortunate in our community, travelling locally, nationally and abroad with the saving message of Christ; we believe each act of selfless love creates in each of us a heart that resembles Christ who is the answer to each person's deepest needs.
Our prayer to God is that, with His strength and power we can accomplish this vision in our time and in doing so will produce growth within each member at Northwest Tampa Church of Christ as well as encourage others to join us in our Christian journey. As we grow individually we also envision growing numerically. With numerical growth comes the need for additional ministries and also facilities that can comfortably and safely house this new growth. We are aware that we must plan for that growth now because "Where there is no vision the people per- ish" (Proverbs 29:18).
Our prayer is that God will always receive the glory and praise for everything we do as well as our thanksgiving for how He has already and will continue to bless us.

Mom and Me Missions
Moms, summer is coming soon and I’m looking forward to going on some local mission trips with you and your children! Please join me again this summer as we emulate servant hood and spread the love of Christ to others in our church family and in our community. This is suited for children through 5th grade and Grandmas, Aunts and Babysitters are encouraged to bring children, too. If you are inter- ested, please email me at gina- [email protected] I will put you on my email list and send you noti- fications when we will be going on a mission this summer. Together we make a difference for Christ!

Everybody’s Normal…Till You Get To Know Them
A. In certain stores you will find a section of merchandise available at greatly re- duced prices. Each tag carries the same words “as is”. So if you were looking for perfection, you walked down the wrong aisle.
B. And when dealing with human beings, you have come to the “as is” corner of the universe. If you want to enter a relationship with another human being, there is only one way “as-is”! Because if you are looking for perfection you walked down the wrong aisle.
1. Everybody Has _____________
A. Scripture tells us that no one is totally normal or at least not how God defin normal (Isaiah 53:6; Eccl. 7:20; Rom. 3:23). B. Consider how many families just in the first half of the book of Genesis that
had huge problems (Gen. 3:1-6; Gen. 4:1-8; Gen. 4:19; Gen. 6:5; Gen. 9:25; Gen. 11:4; Gen. 19:6-8; Gen. 12; 20; Gen. 25-27).
2. We Long to _______________
A. You see because as frustrating as people can be it’s hard to find a good substitute. B. Someone once said, “With billions of people in the world, someone should fig-
ure out a system where no one is lonely.” There is no pain like the pain of lone- liness.
3. _____________ Shaped Void! A. God Himself makes it clear in His word that there are some needs that can only
be met by the relationships we form with human beings! B. Genesis 2:18.
4. God’s Divine _____________
A. Many people struggle with the concept of "church" because churches have gotten away from their original purpose: life savers, soul-savers. Many times people have had such bad experiences with church they no longer see it as a haven of rest.
5. The _____________ As It Should Be
A. This is Jesus’ church, it bears His name, He is the head, and if He, as a perfect man, casts no stones, neither can we.
B. John 8:7-11
