Pastor Clint & Terri Smith
When Pastor Clint and Terri first came to Believers' Chapel in Cicero, it was so their children could attend the youth ministry programs. It wasn't long before they began attending themselves in 1995.
Soon, they were ministering to that youth group together. Through the years, Pastor Clint has been involved in many areas of ministry. At Believers' Chapel Cicero he taught Starting Point and led the Usher Ministry. He has spread the gospel of Christ on missions trips to New York City, Sri Lanka and, most recently, to India. Together, he and Terri have led several LIFE Groups around the area.
In 2010, Pastor Clint graduated from Believers' School of Ministry. Shortly after that, he and Terri began a LIFE Group in Auburn. That LIFE Group grew. It is now Believers' Chapel Auburn.
The Auburn church's mission statement is, 'Everyday People Building Everyday Relationships with God and Each Other.' It is their desire to see each person grow in relationship with Jesus and to grow in friendship with each other.
Terri's passion is to continue ministry to youth where it all began so many years ago. She desires teens and young adults to come to Christ, learn His purpose for their life, and make a difference in the lives of others.
Believers' Chapel Auburn - Our Mission
Every church must have a mission statement that answers the question, “why do we exist?” At Believers’ Chapel Auburn, we filter every idea, program, teaching and budget request through our mission statement. If what we plan does not help us meet our mission, then we won’t do it.
Our mission at Believers’ Chapel Auburn is summarized in a single statement:
“Everyday People Building Everyday Relationship’s With God and Each Other”
Our mission statement is based on two strong teachings from Jesus Himself:
He said to them; “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe…” Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it. (Mark16:15-22 NIV)
Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Laws and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” (Matthew22:36-40 NIV)
Believers’ Chapel Auburn exists:
To worship God with sincere expression.
To share the Good News of Jesus with everyday people.
To connect with other believers in meaningful everyday relationships.
To prepare disciples to fulfill their everyday purpose.
To encourage leaders in their God-given destiny, that will result in planting churches.
