Beyond connecting with God through a relationship with Jesus, God wants you to connect with Him through His family, the Church. The Church is the tangible expression of God in the earth. It's through our connection with God's Church that we grow (Ephesians 4:15-16), and have opportunity to serve and invest the gifts God has given us (Ephesians 4:7; 1 Peter 4:10-11). According to God's Word, our involvement with the Church is non-negotiable because He has called us to live, love, and strengthen one another in the community of the local fellowship (Hebrews 10:24-25).
God never meant us to do life alone. First and foremost, God wants us to experience a dynamic and ever-growing relationship with Him. He made the ultimate investment into our lives when He sent Jesus to the cross to die for our sins that we might be reconciled to Him (2 Corinthians 5:21). That's our connection point with His purpose. When we accept Jesus into our lives and receive the new life He came to bring us, we begin a journey - an adventure of faith - with God. The new birth is your connection point with God's purpose for your life, but the journey doesn't end there. In fact it is only beginning (Ephesians 2:10).
Partnering with His Purpose
As we shared already, the Church is to be the tangible expression of God in the earth. We are called to make disciples of all nations, starting with where we are right now (Matthew 28:18-20, Acts 1:8). The gospel must not be merely communicated; it must be demonstrated! To do this, we must express the life and love of God in practical, tangible ways that provide a platform of credibility for the gospel and demonstrate the genuineness of our faith. We have a mandate from the Head of the Church, Jesus Christ, to let His life and love be known to our community and the world. We hope you'll join us!
