When he started Saddleback Church, Rick Warren states that he immediately “decided to specialize our services, having one targeted for the purpose of growing Christians and planning another one specifically for reaching our non-believing friends.

10 IV. Saddleback’s Purpose Statement “To bring people to Jesus and membership in his family, develop them to Christian maturity, and equip them for their ministry in the church and life mission in the world, in order to magnify God’s name.” “To bring people to Jesus and membership in his family, develop them to Christian maturity, and equip them for their ministry in the church and life mission in the world, in order to magnify God’s name.”

11 V. Saddleback’s Belief Statement God is bigger and better and closer than we can imagine. The Bible is God’s perfect guidebook for living. Jesus is God showing himself to us. Through His Holy Spirit, God lives in and through us now. Nothing in creation “just happened.” God made it all. Grace is the only way to have a relationship with God

12 V. Saddleback’s Belief Statement Faith is the only way to grow in our relationship with God. God has allowed evil to provide us with a choice, God can bring good even out of evil events and God promises victory over evil to those who choose him. Heaven and hell are real places. Death is a beginning, not the end. The church is to serve people like Jesus served people. Jesus is coming again.
