Purpose & Vision

Midtown Church

A family loved and served by God, compelled to love and serve Austin with God.

Vision

Our central purpose is to glorify God in all things. Our vision is to partner with God to see the day when every man, woman and child hears the gospel from a person who loves them — beginning in Austin and spreading to the ends of the earth.

Love

(Matthew 22:36-40)
We love God because God loved us first. He loved us when we didn’t love Him. He loves us when we fail to love Him. We love Him because he knows everything about us and still loves us. God loves us, therefore we love God.

We love people because people matter to God. God loves everyone; every man, woman & child. Which means God loves imperfect people like us and so we love imperfect people too. God loves people, therefore we love people.

Serve

(Mark 10:45)
Jesus came to serve. He gave his life serving. As his followers we chose to use our lives to serve. We chose to serve people who are not like us and who do not like us. We serve people who ask and people who don’t have a voice to ask. We serve the least, the hurting the lonely and the marginalized. We serve because people matter to God. We serve to give people a picture of our God who serves. Jesus came to serve, therefore we are here to serve.

Austin

(Jeremiah 29:7)
God has given us a passion for our city; this is where we are called to love & serve.

We love Austin. We love its culture, its people and its places. As Central Austinites we want to do our part in helping Austin become an even more weird, fun, creative, green and loving city. We hope for a day that every person in Austin has an opportunity to hear about God’s love for them from a friend who loves them.
