The Bible is not a collection of stories – it is one story, the story of God’s plan of redemption through Jesus Christ.
Beginning Fall 2017, we as a church body are going to take an amazing journey through scripture learning how the gospel of Jesus Christ is present throughout the entire Bible. We pray that the good news of the gospel will motivate us to mission.
What mission? The great commission!
In Matthew 28:19 Jesus instructed his disciples to “Go and make disciples of all nations…”. The early church exploded because of their passion for Jesus Christ. Experiencing a relationship with Jesus first hand ignited a flame in their souls that not even the threat of death could put out. The ultimate sacrifice for sin had been made! The great power of his love, displayed!
So they went OUT. They went out to their neighbors, their friends and to strangers abroad…opening their hearts, their homes and their lives.
This was their mission.
This is our mission.
