Highland Lakes Crisis Network
Love God. Love People. Mobilize the Kingdom.
Our Mission and Vision
The Highland Lakes Crisis Network is a network of churches meeting the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of our neighbors during times of crisis and disaster.
Our Values and Goals
Unity: We strive to be one so that the world will know that God sent His son and will also be one in and with Him.
Honor the Church: Our desire is to connect people in need with God’s provision for them, by working together with existing, effective ministries in order to bring honor and glory to God and His church. Our interactions will be respectful and reflect our belief that all of our gifts have been given from God and should be used toward advancing His Kingdom.
Love Our Neighbors: The Greatest Commandment calls us to love God with all our heart, soul, and mind and to Love our neighbor as yourself. Everything we do is with a goal of glorifying God through service to others. We strive to serve and to love unconditionally, as Christ loved us. We treat each other with respect and dignity regardless of belief, politics, race, or any other thing that divides us in this world.
