The CWOW, Global Reach

~Our Vision~
To Impact, Inspire & Heal Our Communities & World Through God’s Love.

FAITH

The spirit of The CWOW seeks to exude the endless, infinite love of God and grace and justice of Jesus Christ to all people.  CWOW is a Christian Church that uses the Bible at its authority, yet teaches the Bible from the margins with the marginalized and oppressed in mind. Our God is big enough for our questions and questions to develop an authentic relationship and true understanding of God will always be encouraged.  People are encouraged to develop their own intimate relationships with God, theology, truths and personal convictions.

 Our faith and intellect are welcome at CWOW as we are on a journey together, with no person holding a single key to God or the answers to the various mysteries of God. CWOW supports critical examination of the Church, Scripture and Self in an effort to grow spiritually and be transformed into the purposeful, great people we were created to be. The more whole and in-tune with our collective and individual purposes we become, the more equipped we’ll be to transform our communities and ultimately our world.

MISSION

With the Spirit as our guide, through love, kindness and acceptance we will serve, educate, instill wholeness, fight for justice, empower and help foster authentic relationships with God.
 
Our foundational scripture is Micah 6:8- He has told you O mortal what is good and what does the Lord require of you, but to do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with our God.
 
 The CWOW is more than a Church, it is a movement! The CWOW can serve as model for missional churches seeking to impact their communities and community members beyond Sunday mornings.

COMMUNITY

The CWOW is a missional church that seeks to be an essential entity within our communities.  The CWOW will serve the community, community members and resist the ever present temptation to become a monument to itself or a country club for its members. In fact, 10% of tithes and offerings collected by THE CWOW are placed back into our communities. We are not bound by the four walls of a church building, but take the love of God throughout the community and world. The “CWOW,” is both figurative and literal. We, “the people” are the Church.

 To maintain a sense of community and foster the vision, The CWOW will be intentional about its development. Once a CWOW congregation grows to 500 members, it’s time to replant and develop in another area.  By replanting when congregations grow to 500, The CWOW will maintain the sense of community and accountability that can be lost.
