Our Mission

X Factor Church exists to engage, encourage, and equip people to become everything that God has called them to be.

ENGAGE

The church is called to engage both non-believers and believers alike. Non-believers are to be engaged with the intent of showing them the love of Christ and sharing with them the Gospel. Believers are to be encouraged to grow in their faith through worship, discipleship, and accountability.

ENCOURAGE

The church is called to encourage non-believers and believers. Our outward actions, speech, and attitude can do much to encourage nonbelievers to want to know more about what it means to be a Christian. The church should also encourage believers to be growing in their relationship with God in every way including personal spiritual growth, evangelism, and service.

EQUIP

ENGAGE

The church is uniquely positioned and called to help equip non-believers to come to a saving knowledge of Christ. Believers should be equipped by the church to be able to make a defense for what they believe and to use the gifts given to them by God for the benefit of the Church and the Kingdom of God.
