Our Vision and Mission

Vision: to make JTGS a church of choice for the international community in Paris.
– We seek to make Jesus the Good Shepherd (JTGS) to be a home away from home for people of different nationalities and backgrounds to gather in unity to worship one God.

This is achievable through:

  • Demonstrating the heart of the Shepherd and raise other shepherds that will have compassion for the nation.
  • Reaching people for Christ and make them a member of God’s family and develop them to Christ-like maturity.
  • Producing quality Bible Cell Groups all over the city that will demonstrate their love for God by loving and serving others.
  • Reaching out to all nationalities and support missionaries in church planting.
  • Preparing the youth through development in the knowledge of the Word. To mold them to be Christ-like and make them aware that they are the hope of the future.

Mission: we are committed to help people discover that in Christ, life is lived victoriously.
– We promote our church’s core principles – “Where Christian living is victorious”. This can be made possible by delighting in God’s Word (Psalm 1:1-3), loving God (Matthew 22:37), abiding in God (John 15:5), and obeying God (Joshua 1:7-8).
