Gospel Sharing—How often do I share the good news?
Bible Engagement. Believing in the total inerrancy, absolute sufficiency, and life-changing power of God’s Word, we will regularly engage the Bible personally and through group study. God’s Word is foundational to all we are and do. (Psalm 119:10, Psalm 119:105, 2 Timothy 3:16-17)
Worshipful Lifestyle. Knowing that worship is more than what we do together on Sunday morning, we will live in daily submission to God, pray at all times, and willingly serve Him. A constant attitude of worship leads to personal humility. (John 4:23, 1 Peter 4:11, Colossians 3:15-17, Philippians 2:1-11)
Intentional Relationships. Seeking more than shallow acquaintances, we exercise sacrificial love by giving ourselves to others in meaningful relationships for mutual Christlike growth. We belong to God and one another as a Church family. (Matthew 22:37-40, John 13:34, Hebrews 10:24-25)
Gifted Service. Recognizing that God has given each of us unique talents, abilities, and spiritual gifts, we will serve individually and together for the glory of God. We always function better together as the Body of Christ. (Romans 12:4-8, 1 Corinthians 12:4-11, Ephesians 4:16)
Gospel Sharing. Rejoicing in our personal relationships with God, we will share the Good News of Jesus with others and serve them in His name. God’s desire is that all people would come to a saving relationship with Him. (Matthew 28:18-20, Acts 1:8, 2 Peter 3:9-10)
As a church body, what is a hallmark of health?
Thankfulness! (15-17)
