This weekend, we will be taking a look at something we all know to be part of the Christian but many struggle with: evangelism. We have heard the commands in Scripture to go out and spread the gospel, but have a difficult time putting them into practice. Scripture does not call us to be the prosecution or defense attorneys in God’s courtroom. Nor are we supposed to be the judge of jury. We are witnesses to Christ and what He has done. The title of this weekend’s message is “THE WITNESS STAND.”
This weekend, we will be taking a look at the collective impact of the church. We are more than just a gathering of individuals. We are a body, joined together by God for a specific mission: to reach the world with the message of the gospel. We are each capable of accomplishing much for the Lord on our own. However, it is only when we are united in our purpose and our efforts that God can use the church to make a profound impact. The title of this weekend’s message is “JOINT IMPACT.”
Some people fear that community means someone is going to control my life. Nothing could be further from the truth! Community is the joy of walking with other pilgrims on the road of life. As we learned last weekend, community is vital. It keeps us grounded. It helps us to make wise decisions. The reason many people make foolish decisions is because they live in isolation and get easily blown about by their feelings and emotions.
