Our Mission and Vision
"Follow Jesus and lead others to follow Jesus."
"We are becoming a loving, unified community experiencing and living out the transforming power of the Gospel, multiplying followers of Jesus who are impacting Woodland Park, Teller County, and the World."
The WPCC mission statement says that we will “Follow Jesus and Lead Others to Follow Jesus.” Our mission and vision includes the aspect of multiplying followers of Jesus. Our desire is to become a disciple-making church where disciples of Jesus make disciples who make disciples. Discipleship is becoming a core aspect of each ministry of WPCC. Every ministry is aligning together to help people move along a discipleship pathway to become fully mature disciple of Jesus, who are Christ-like and share Christ’s mission to reconcile a lost world to the Father.

Our Discipleship Pathway
- We worship together each week in a larger group setting where we encounter God, unify with each other, learn from God’s Word and celebrate what He has done for us.
- We connect throughout the week in mid-size groups where we fellowship with each other and are equipped to grow and serve Jesus.
- We grow in spiritual maturity, guide each other, pray for one another, care for each other and live out the Word in small groups.
- We continue to challenge each other and hold each other accountable in smaller groups called triads (3 people) and quads (4 people) to multiply disciples, leaders and other small groups.
We do all these things through the ministries on the following pages of our website.
