Sample Mission Statements (Belief, Mission, Vision & Statement of Faith)

Sample Mission Statements such as the Belief Statement, Mission and Vision Statements and Statement of Faith are available free below to download, customize and print for your church administrative office...

When you think of Church Mission Statements, there are two very separate but very similar things that you imagine and these are the mission statement and vision statement.

What is the difference between the Mission and Vision Statement?

The Church Mission Statement is very practical in its scope. In other words, it focuses on what your church will accomplish and how it will accomplish it. The Vision Statement is more designed to be abstract. In other words, it focuses on the personality of the church and how God sees your local church fitting into the larger framework of the global church.

Why are these statements important to my church? There are many reasons why your church needs these statements and here are a few:

  • To Focus the Efforts of Your Church on Unified Goals and Objectives
  • To Open a Church Bank Account (Most banks will request these statements to open a church account)
  • To State on Paper Just How Your Church Believes (Statement of Faith)

  • About Sin and Salvation - We believe that God created Adam and Eve in His image, but they sinned when tempted by Satan. Everyone has sinned and needs salvation...

Visitor Testimonials

*I do the tithes at the end of the year for a very small outreach in the city of Detroit. They had been paying thousands of dollars every several years trying to keep a database of their donors.

I searched last year for something less costly for them and came across your database (Shepherdbase). It is a blessing and so appreciated. Thank you for all your hard work and thank you for Giving To The Lord. Peacemakers Int. in Detroit on Chene street is another ministry you have blessed. - Charlene - U.S. *Disclaimer

*This website has been very useful for my ministries with Hospice, the Hospital and Human Services. I recommend this website to any church, ministry or agency that is supporting or ministering to people. God Bless You - Chaplain Dave - U.S. *Disclaimer

*Thank You! You're heart for giving free resources and making things so affordable is truly a blessing. My Pastor always says: "What you make happen for someone else, God will make happen for you!"

This database:
