Make Much of Jesus
As followers of Jesus Christ, we are all called into full-time ministry. Regardless of vocation, education level, job title, rank, or background, each of us are to share the good news of Jesus and make disciples. May all we do be in his name and may we live out our faith daily, whether at work, in the market place, on campus, or in the family home.
(John 14:6, Acts 4:12, II Corinthians 4:5, Matthew 28:18-20)
experiencing the gospel together
We are intentional in gathering together. Whether on Sunday morning during corporate worship, at a life group meeting, or in one on one discipleship, we have purpose. We seek to praise our Lord, to study his Word, and experience spiritual growth in a relational environment. Regardless of being within the church walls, someone’s home or out in the local community, these experiences play a vital part in our journey of faith. Whether a seasoned believer, a new believer, or someone who is simply curious about the one called Jesus, all are welcome.
(Acts 2:42, Acts 13:2-3, Romans 15:5-6, Hebrews 10:24-25)
A strong prayer life brings a close relationship with our Lord. To know him well requires spiritual discipline. As demonstrated in the new testament, we should pray as a corporate body; in small groups; and as individual believers. We seek to further the kingdom of God and for his will to be done. May we pray in one accord and expect great things.
Mark 11:22-25, Philippians 4:6-7, Hebrews 4:16, Acts 4:24, 31)
love the broken
Brokenness comes in many forms; often visible, but also many times it is hidden away. The gospel can restore what sin has destroyed. The Savior we know can heal the brokenhearted and set the captive free. We must demonstrate what we believe and zealously give both grace and love to anyone in need, whether inside the church or in the community.
(Isaiah 61:1, Luke 6:37-38, I Peter 3:15)
Generosity is a lifestyle that gives freely and lives openhanded. It is choosing to humbly invest of ourselves and our resources into the kingdom of God and pour into others without counting the cost. May we live for that which matters most and may we be ever mindful that our actions and choices truly reflect where our treasure is.
(Luke 10:29-37, Mark 12:41-44, Matthew 6:19-21)
