Chestnut Ridge Church
The Story of Us–Part 6
Throughout the pages of the Bible we see God's plan for humanity as revealed from Genesis to Revelation. Join us this summer for the series, The Story of Us. We will take a journey through the Bible and will learn that God not only created us, but that He wants to spend an eternity with us. The Bible is God's story. It is also the story of us.

The Story of Us [Part 6]—Josh Rhodes

Problem: We aren’t focused on Jesus’ mission to seek and save the lost.
Solution: We’re the people of God on a mission with God.
Purpose: From the beginning, God’s purpose in creation was to enjoy an eternal relationship with people.
Problem: A problem quickly entered the story when people disobeyed God and sinned, causing there to be a separation between people and a Holy God.
Plan: God, rich in mercy, enacted His rescue plan to save people.
Promised One: After 100’s years with many twists and turns, God’s rescue plan culminated at just the right time with the birth of Jesus, the Promised One.
People of God: Anyone who recognizes their need for a Savior and comes to God through faith in Christ, is saved. They are delivered from the penalty of their sin, and they are adopted into the family of God, the people of God.
On that day, Jesus entrusted His mission to the eleven.
Today, Jesus is entrusting His mission to us.
Our vision is to be an inviting church that leads people into a growing relationship with God and others.
How will we accomplish our vision?
Invest and invite
Our mission, the mission that Jesus has entrusted has to us, is to seek and save the lost from an eternity apart from God to an eternity with God.
“There is no higher calling or greater privilege known to man than being involved in helping fulfill the Great Commission.” –Bill Bright
