Vision and Mission
Vision: Kingdom Causes Long Beach longs to see the Shalom (peace, wholeness, prosperity) of Long Beach realized as evidenced by:
- Healthy Individuals, Youth and Families - people experiencing life-giving relationships and have access to the resources needed to develop holistically
- Vibrant 'Church of the City' - the Body of Christ is mature, exhibits cooperation and displays visible unity
- Thriving Neighborhoods - individuals, associations and institutions are interdependent and contribute to the well being of all
Mission: Kingdom Causes Long Beach is a non-profit organization that activitates the gifts of the neighborhoods and the city for positive change in Long Beach.
- Christ-centered: The hope for our cities and all who live in them is Jesus. He is the one who sets the focus, direction and purpose of our organization.
- Relational: People matter. We value people over programs and relationships over systems. We collaborate and work as bridge-builders regionally within our cities realizing that we are more effective together than independently.
- Holistic: The goal is to see cities and the people in them wholly transformed (physically, emotionally, mentally, economically, and spiritually). Our Great Commission as the Church is to both share and demonstrate the Gospel of the Kingdom.
- Indigenous: Place matters. Within each city God has already placed most, if not all, the resources necessary to bring about its unique transformation.
Jeremiah 29:7 "Seek the peace and prosperity of the city...pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper"(NIV)
