Acts 1:6-11: 6 So when they had come together, they asked him, “Lord, are you restoring the kingdom to Israel at this time?” 7 He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or periods that the Father has set by his own authority. 8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come on you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” 9 After he had said this, he was taken up as they were watching, and a cloud took him out of their sight. 10 While he was going, they were gazing into heaven, and suddenly two men in white clothes stood by them. 11 They said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking up into heaven? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come in the same way that you have seen him going into heaven.”
GBC Mission Statement: We exist to make disciples who share Christ and serve families.
Witnesses do these things:
1. Stay focused.
2. Join the movement.
3. Receive the power.
4. Become a witness.
5. Go across the street and around the world.
6. Care for our community.
Closing Thought: The effectiveness of our witness, the success of our mission, is in direct proportion to how much love we have for our community. If GBC closed its door and no longer existed, would Greenwood notice? Would Greenwood care?
