Our Vision

We believe God is calling us to be a catalyst for spiritual awakening in Memphis and beyond.


To be a catalyst for spiritual awakening in Memphis and beyond.

Our Vision Frame is a tool to help our church work together to accomplish this vision. The Gospel of Jesus—the Good News He brought—is that God made a way for us to move from darkness to light. That transformation can happen today. Once we step into that awakening for ourselves, we’re compelled to share the effects of God’s kingdom with our community, our city, and the nations.



Love God. Love People.
Share Jesus. Make Disciples.

The first part of Bellevue’s Vision Frame is our mission: love God, love people, share Jesus, and make disciples. This mission is the guiding compass of our church. It points each of us in that direction. Our mission statement may sound simple, but it flows from the mission of Jesus Himself as He described in the Great Commandment in Matthew 22:37–39 and the Great Commission in Matthew 28:19–20.


Our values make up the second part of our Vision Frame—they are the motivational flame of our church. They are the shared convictions that guide our actions.

Intimacy With Jesus
Pursuing a passionate relationship with Jesus above all

Biblical Truth
Treasuring God’s perfect Word as our standard for life and faith

Intentional Hospitality
Welcoming every person with the love of Jesus

Ministry Excellence
Reflecting the character of God in service to others

City Renewal
Investing in the redemption of the people of our community


The fourth and final area of our Vision Frame is our strategy. It is like a flashlight that helps everyone clearly see their next step in getting involved at Bellevue. Our strategy consists of proven pathways to accomplishing our mission. Our desire is for each person to worship, get in a group, and serve.
