Some of what we believe.
We believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. We believe in Jesus Christ, God's only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again; he ascended into heaven, he is seated at the right hand of the Father, and he will come again to judge the living and the dead.
Reached People Reach People.
Live in such a way for Jesus, be ready for people to roll up on you and ask, Man, how are you still going?
Numerous scriptures in the Bible talk about living for Jesus and following His teachings. Here are a few examples:

Galatians 2:20 - "I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me."

Colossians 3:17 - "And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him."

1 Corinthians 10:31 - "So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God."

“In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.” Matthew 5:16 NLT
When sharing the Gospel…….
1. Be real (don’t sugarcoat it). Let them know that you are messed up, too.
2. Be ready for the disruption in their life. Life happens. Notice them, tell them, ask them.
3. Remember what your testimony is. Life before Jesus, how you met him, how He has changed you.
4. Remember, you are not working out of your power but His. We have the Holy Spirit.
Things to Remember.
1. The Promise of the Holy Spirit - In John 14:16-17, Jesus promised to send the Holy Spirit as a Helper and Comforter to His disciples. The Greek word for Helper is parakletos (power klat os) which means advocate or one who stands by your side. This shows us that the Holy Spirit is not just a force or a power but a Person who desires to come alongside us and help us navigate life.

2. The Power of the Holy Spirit—Acts 1:8 tells us that the Holy Spirit will come upon us and fill us with power. This power is not just physical or emotional strength but supernatural strength from God. In Ephesians 3:20, we are reminded that God's power working in us is able to do exceedingly and abundantly more than we can ask or think.

3. The Purpose of the Holy Spirit - As believers, we are called to receive the Holy Spirit for our own benefit and to be His messengers to the world. The Greek word for messengers in Acts 1:8 is Martus, which means witnesses. This means that the Holy Spirit empowers us to be bold and effective witnesses for Christ, both in our communities and to the ends of the earth.

One thing we must remember is that we are here because someone thought enough of us to share the good news.
