Introducing People to God by Knowing, Living, and Sharing the Gospel
This is simply an expression of Jesus’ parting words to all of His followers – Our goal is to simply introduce people to a loving God who draws people to repentance. (1 Thess 1:4–5 | Matt 22:37–40| Matt 11:28–30)
Knowing, Living, and Sharing
God chose us, allowed us to become His children, and be reconciled to Him. Knowing this, we live a life continually recognizing that we are a sinful people before a Holy God, and we are in need of Him and the power of His Grace. (Rom 10:8–13 | 2 Pt 3:17–18).
As we live our lives, we live Jesus out in the open by glorifying His name through our time, talent, and treasures… and though we may fail at times, we pursue living a grace filled life and showing that same grace to others (Col 1:10).
Recognizing what God has done for us, we are compelled to reorient our lives around Jesus, and to immerse ourselves into our local community and culture so that we might advance the Gospel by seeing people come to know the Savior (Acts 1:8 | 2 Cor 5:20).
The Gospel is the power of God. There is nothing that can affect change in the human heart like it. We can make an attempt to change our behavior, but if we want true change, lasting change, then what we need is for Jesus to transform our heart (Rom 1:16 | 1 Cor 1:18).
