The greatest desire of Pastor Rick Warren and Daily Hope Ministries is that our listeners would be compelled to learn the Word, love the Word, and LIVE the Word! Be ‘doers’ of the Word! (James 1:22)
This is done by living our 5 purposes. You can read more about these in Pastor Rick’s book, The Purpose Driven Life.
We Were Planned For God’s Pleasure (Worship)
We are alive today because God chose us to be here. We exist for his benefit, his glory, his purpose, and his delight. Bringing enjoyment to God, and living for his pleasure, is the first purpose of your life.
We Were Formed For God’s Family (Fellowship)
Because God is love, he treasures relationships. Pastor Rick says we are better together, and God made you to love Him first and foremost, and love your neighbor as yourself. This is why we value small groups so much!
You Were Created To Become Like Christ (Discipleship)
Spiritual growth is not so much about “doing” as it is about “becoming” – becoming more like Christ through the Word of God. It’s a life-long adventure that takes patience, commitment, and intentional focus. Ultimately, the Christian life is about building an intimate relationship with Jesus as the Holy Spirit changes us from the inside out, and loving others the way Jesus loves us.
You Were Shaped For Serving God (Ministry)
When we become a Christian, God gives us salvation and the hope of eternity in heaven. He also gives us purpose and significance in our lives. He has given each of us the opportunity to serve others and make a real difference in our community. Applying our talents to help others in the name of Jesus is our mission.
You Were Made For A Mission (Mission)
God wants us to share His love where we are. As a student, mother, teacher, salesman, manager, or whatever we do, God wants us to reach out to the people in our life. That might mean inviting a friend to church or showing love to those in need around us. Sharing the good news of Jesus Christ is the most important mission on this earth.
