Mission & Vision
Recognizing that all people matter to God, and therefore matter to us, the purpose of Allen Creek Community Church is to provide every seeker in Snohomish County a place where they can become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. = REACH & TEACH
To accomplish our mission we choose to DO church differently, not just a different way of doing church services. We are committed to a Vision with a threefold pattern. We believe that this pattern is a comtemporary expression of the New Testament church. (Acts 2:42-47)
We exist to: CONNECT seekers with the truth in a safe environment where they can check out the claims of Christ at their own pace, COACH one another along in our own spiritual journeys and to COMMUNE with God regularly so that we might passionately seek Him and His will for our lives.

THE AC3 HERON:
Why is the Heron hidden in plain sight all around AC3? Well, real Blue Herons inhabit the banks of Allen Creek, which runs through our church’s mission field. But more significantly we noted that the Heron is a great fisherman – and Jesus calls his followers to be “fishers of men”. We call people into the Kingdom of God and “catching” people – seeing true life change as God’s grace takes hold of a person – is what we’re all about.
The Heron is also a very patient fisherman. Patience defines HOW we like to catch people at AC3. We want to be patient; patient with people’s questions, with their doubts and hang ups, creatively, lovingly communicating God’s grace until the day they respond in faith. That’s why you see the Heron so much at AC3 – so next time you’re around the building, see how many Hidden Herons you can count!
