The Viroqua Church of Christ
VCOC Vision and Mission
The vision of VCOC is to equip and mobilize fellow believers to show and share the love and grace of Jesus with every person possible within our sphere of influence.
The mission of VCOC: To be disciples who make disciples of Jesus Christ.
Matthew 28:18-20 (NIV) Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
We take the Bible and what it says seriously.

1) People over programs. All individuals matter to Christ and therefore to us.
2) Prayer for others and the church is ministry.
3) We want to be known for loving others. Love for others should be seen in action. (John 13:34-35; 1John 3:16-20; 1John 4:7-12)
4) Unity in the Body of Christ matters to Jesus and therefore to us. John 17. We value the unity of all believers, therefore, we will endeavor to continue the process of Restoration. We are a part of what is known as the Restoration movement, as such we want to continue to do our part in restoring the church to New Testament Christianity.
