Last week...

Last week, Pastor Jeff talked about David's son's sin with his half sister.
“Repetition is the mother of learning, the father of action, which makes it the architect of accomplishment.” ― Zig Ziglar

By constantly keeping the vision of our church visible and talked about, we will learn it, do it and accomplish it.

Because a vision isn’t just a sentence, it is a reason for being.
The reason that Dover Assembly exists is this:
Our mission and every church’s mission should be to connect people to the living God. If a person doesn’t know Jesus, our job should be to introduce them to the Jesus we know.
In Acts, we hear about Paul’s conversion from Saul in chapter 9, but we also see that Paul repeats that same account 3 times. Each account differed a bit from the others, but Paul used his experience on 3 different occasions to witness to those around him.
We don’t have to be Paul or a preacher or a theologian to simply tell others what Jesus has done for us.
As a church, our responsibility is to facilitate each person here to connect with God. That means our goal on Sundays and Wednesdays is to have develop an atmosphere and opportunity for everyone who walks in the door to have an intimate time with God.

Our worship is designed to allow us to express in song what we may not be able to otherwise the appreciation we have for all that Jesus has done.

Every Sunday School class or Wednesday night class is designed to teach children and adults God’s word which enables them to connect with God on their own.

Worship time is us expressing our love to God. Sermons are God’s time to speak to us thru His word.

Occasionally God speaks to us through tongues and interpretation or prophecy. Generally those words are words of encouragement designed to speak to the entire church or maybe just one individual to meet a need in their life at that time.
Church is supposed to be a time of rest from the world and refilling of God’s spirit in us.

We want our church to be one where people can connect with God.
Not only do we want people to connect with God, we know that God uses people to accomplish His will. He uses people to meet the needs of others.
LifeWay Research did a survey and found the following:

~ 45% of regular church attenders read their bibles more than once a week.
~ About 40% read it occasionally. 1 or 2 times per month
~ 20% never read it.
~ 67% of Americans believe heaven is real.
~ 45% believe you can get there many ways.
~ 20% of Christians believe this too.
Once we have a working knowledge of God’s word, then we are more apt to apply what it says to our lives.
We build people by teaching them God’s word, we build them by getting them to apply what they know.
And we build people by meeting their needs.
We study God’s word, not just to gain information and knowledge--we study and teach it to prepare us to do it.
It is through the doing that we really build ourselves up in the faith.
Building is a circle. We come to be built up in the faith, then we desire to reach out and help others and as we do, we desire to know more, then we desire to do more. . .
Most people aren’t satisfied to have others do everything for them. We have a God given desire to experience and do things for ourselves.
Our vision to build people is really a desire to equip people to live out God’s will with God’s help for themselves.
Christianity is the only thing that can give each of us true hope.

People will let you down, things will wear out, situations will come and go, and if we have our hope in any of those, we will be let down.

They will never fulfill what they say they will.

God is the same always and his promises never change.
When we invite our friends and family to church, we aren’t just inviting them to a meeting. We are asking them to experience the hope and encouragement that we have already experienced.
We want this church to grow and be an influence in our community.
We believe the more this is brought to our attention, the more we will become what our vision says we want to be.

Thank you for joining us!
