<< CORE VALUES THAT DRIVE HOPECC >>

Core Value #6
MISSION: Everybody can tell somebody about Jesus!
(John 1:29-42)
Two reasons why EVERY Christian should share their faith in Jesus with others:
1. They KNOW Him.
2. He is WORTH sharing.
1. Witnessing isn't optional.
(It is not a matter of IF, but HOW we will witness.)

What I want on my tombstone: "He loved God so much that he couldn't keep Him to himself.”
—Lee Strobel tweet
2. Witnessing isn't about winning an argument.
(It is God's view, not ours, that matters most.)

"Even if we question whether life has meaning, none of us live as if it had none. We care for our loves ones and value them. We oppose immoral acts such as rape and genocide. If you take life to have meaning beyond your immediate experience, then you are on the side of theism against atheism.”
—Douglas Groothuis
3. Witnessing is simply sharing Good News.
(It is good because God is good!)

Witnessing is simply one beggar telling another beggar where to find bread!
4. Witnessing is simply doing our part.
(We plant the seed, but God saves the soul.)

"If the presence of God is in the church, the church will draw the world in. If the presence of God is not in the church, the world will draw the church out.”
—Charles Finney
