Engage [Part 6]—Tim Haring

Problem: Why engage?
Solution: Partner with us.
Our vision: To be an inviting church that leads people into a growing relationship with God and others.
“In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, charity (love).” —St. Augustine, quoted by John Wesley
Four steps towards partnership:
Connect, Serve, Give, Invite
"The picture here is of an arena; the spectators are the heroes of faith listed in the previous chapter; the runners are the believers going through trials." —Wiersbe
"Christ is the leader or captain of faith, in that he is the perfecter of faith. In himself he furnished the perfect development, the supreme example of faith, and in virtue of this he is the leader of the whole believing host in all time.9" —Vincent
