Mission

The mission of Burke Community Church is, "To know Christ and make Him known." God knows us, created us, and loves us deeply. This great love compels us to respond. We do this as a church when we GATHER together, GROW in our knowledge and love for God, and GO out into our community, sharing and showing the love of Jesus Christ to others.

Vision

In Acts 1:8 Jesus told his disciples, "...you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." Similarly, God has placed Burke Community Church in a strategic location to shine the light of Jesus Christ to the world. We want to see that light spread throughout Burke, Northern Virginia, Washington D.C., and to the ends of the earth.

Beliefs

1 Timothy 4:16 says, "Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers." At Burke Community Church we care, not only that our beliefs are in line with God's instruction, but that we are learning to walk in them as well.
