Fourthly, a rooted church is an evangelizing church.
The movement of Jesus (the Church) has always and forever been about a heart for those who are NOT HERE YET!!
The first 3 roots we’ve covered focus on the domestic life of the congregation: learning, worship, and fellowship. BUT, If that’s all a church possesses, it’s like an ingrown toenail—self regarding. What about the world outside?
Evangelism is the continuous outreach into the community seeking to bring people into Christ and his community, into the church family.
This is to be an ongoing pursuit of each follower of Christ.
WE MUST CARE ABOUT WHO IS NOT YET HERE!
Rescued people, rescue people.
Pray for 1. Who's your ONE?
