Vision ~ What we see the future of ACC
To become transformed believers who reflect the glory of God and uniquely touch the lives of people wherever we go!
Strategy ~ How we are going to accomplish our mission
The following strategy is how we move people from spiritually lost to maturity in Christ. It consists of six steps.
Step 1 ~ Go and build relationship with unchurched people
Rationale - Rather than beginning with the gospel, we seek to make connections so that when we do share the gospel, we have credibility. People are more inclined to open to the gospel from a trusted friend than from a stranger. This is preparing the soil to receive the seed.
Vehicles - Every believer attending ACC is encouraged to reach out to unchurched friends and build relationship with them. As a church, we seek to provide ministries to the community and participate in appropriate community functions: like Wild Flower Trip, Family Enrichment Seminars, Chinese New Year celebration, sports day, etc. Friendly visit to the families of Awana children, Chinese school students, youth parents, and guests on Sundays to build relationship.
Step 2 ~ Go and share the gospel
Rationale - In addition to building relationship and witnessing to people with our lives, we need to verbally share our testimonies and the gospel with them in order to lead them to have a saving knowledge of Christ. Once a relationship of integrity has been built, we have gained a platform to share and challenge them to believe.
Vehicles - Personal witnessing, EVT team, evangelistic seekers class in fellowships and in Sunday school hour, evangelistic meetings.
Step 3 ~ Come and worship the Lord
Rationale - Once a person accepted Christ, it is important that he or she attend Sunday worship regularly. Through worship and listening to the teaching of the Bible, new believer begins the process of life transformation. Sunday worship is imperative for those who are committed to becoming devoted followers of Christ.
Vehicles - Sunday service to provide basic instruction on the Bible.
Step 4 ~ Come and grow in Christ
Rationale - Believer needs to be nurtured in the Word of God so that his or her mind is continually renewed and life transformed. Personal follow-up, discipleship and belonging to a group are crucial to the growth of a believer. Life-change happens best in a small group where a person is known authentically and spiritual journey is shared. Every believer who desire to become a devoted follower of Christ must belong to a group for connection, mutual support, discipleship and accountability with fellow believers as well as life application of the Bible.
Vehicles - Adult Sunday school to provide in-depth Bible teaching and life application. Small groups and fellowship groups ministry. Lay pastors and fellowship chairpersons will be responsible to guide and equip believers in their groups directly or through the other ministry of the church. Personal discipleship using 'New Arrival Kit' or any equivalent material.
Step 5 ~ Come and serve the Lord
Rationale - A believer needs to grow in the Lord before he or she can effectively serve the Lord. Every believer is equipped by the Holy Spirit with spiritual gift(s) to serve for the benefit of the body of Christ. Those who take ACC as their home church are encouraged to discover their spiritual gift(s), develop them, and then use them to glorify God. We have different roles in ministry but not different class within the church. Every believer is equally important to the family of ACC.
Vehicles - Membership class or small groups and fellowships using Uniquely You In Christ” to help identify how God has uniquely designed you. Apprentice on the job training within each department of ministry. Servant-Leader training class. Lay pastors and fellowship chairpersons give guidance to their group members as to where they can learn to serve and recommend their names to respective ministry coordinator.
Step 6 ~ Go and reproduce
Rationale - God calls us not only to reproduce spiritually (leading non-believers to Christ), but also to train up individual to continue and to expand the ministry. In addition to using their gifts to serve the Lord, devoted followers of Christ will invest their lives into the life of the others.
Vehicles - Discipleship program Staff, elders, deacons, district pastors, lay pastors, fellowship chairpersons, department and committee heads as coach to their apprentice.
異象 ~ 前瞻
行動計劃 ~ 如何去完成這使命
第一 ~ 來與未信的人建立關係
理念 - 與其從福音開始，我們會先建立好關係，好使當我們分享福音信息的時候，會更為可靠。人對於福音信息出自一個值得信賴的朋友，遠比出自一個陌生人要開放得多。這是撒種前的鬆土準備。
方法 - 我們鼓勵每一個參與ACC 的弟兄姊妹都盡力去接觸未信朋友，與他們建立關係。作為一個教會，我們力求為社區提供不同的事工，並且舉辦適當的社區活動：例如野地花之旅、家庭講座、農曆新年慶祝聚會、運動日、等。拜訪Awana 、兒童主日學、青少年團契的青少年、和他們的家長，以及出席主日崇拜的新來賓，藉此建立關係。
第二 ~ 來分享福音
理念 - 除了建立關係和在生活上見證神以外，我們也需要把自己的見證和神的福音向人傳講，好讓他們更認識基督。一旦健全的關係建立好以後，我們就有了可以分享和邀請他們決志的基地了。
方法 - 個人見證的三元佈道，在團契和主日學時間的福音查經，佈道聚會。
第三 ~ 來一起敬拜主
理念 - 一旦有人接受基督以後，最重要的就是邀請他/她經常參加主日敬拜。透過敬拜和講台上的聖經教導，新信主的弟兄姊妹將開始經歷生命上的轉變。對於那些決志成為基督門徒的人而言，主日敬拜是極為重要的。
方法 - 在主日崇拜中提供基本的聖經教導。
第四 ~ 來一起在基督裡成長
理念 - 信徒必須在神的話語裡得到栽培，以致他/她的思想能夠不斷得著更新，生命得到改變。個人跟進，門徒訓練，以及歸屬於某一小組，都是一個信徒成長的要素。小組乃是經歷生命改變的最佳處所，一個信徒可以在當中找到真實友誼，並且一同走這屬靈上的旅程。每個渴望成為基督跟隨者的信徒，必須參與小組，好使在信徒之間可以互相連繫、支持、彼此造就、和承擔責任，並且把聖經應用於生活當中。
方法 - 成人主日學可以提供有深度的聖經教導和生活上的應用。小組和團契事工。小牧人和團契主席將在他們的小組和團契內，負責直接、或者透過教會的其他事工來引導和裝備信徒。個人門徒訓練是使用「新移民手冊」或者其他相等的材料。
第五 ~ 來一起服事主
理念 - 一個信徒若要有效地服事神，就必須先在主裡成長。每一個信徒都具有由聖靈所賜的屬靈恩賜去事奉，為的是使基督的身體得著益處。我們鼓勵那些以 ACC為他們屬靈的家之信徒，盡量去發掘、發展、並使用自己的屬靈恩賜，好使神得著榮耀。在教會之內，我們有不同的事奉崗位，但卻沒有不同階級之分。在這大家庭裡面，每一位信徒都是同等的重要。
方法 - 在會友班或小組和團契之內使用「在基督裡唯獨是你(Uniquely You In Christ)」，藉以幫助如何認識神塑造你是何等的獨特。在每一個事工部門裡面都有學習事奉的機會。僕人-領袖訓練班。小牧人和團契主席將負責指導他們的組員/契友去實習服事，並把他們轉介給各個事工的負責人。
第六 ~ 一起出去和繁殖
理念 - 神呼召我們不單只是在屬靈上繁殖 (帶領未信主的人到基督面前)，而且更訓練他們去繼續擴展這事工。除了使用他們的恩賜去服事主以外，委身的基督跟隨者同時也會投資他們的生命在其他人的生命當中。
方法 - 門徒訓練課程，各教牧同工、長老、執事、區牧、小牧人、團契主席、部門和委員會的負責人，都負責督導他們的學習。
