Jesus noted that His true worshipers will worship in spirit and in truth (John 4:23-24). This measn that we are to worship and love God with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength (Matthew 22:36-40; Mark 12:28-34). Worship is a lifestyle response to God according to His teachings found in Scripture as well as with heart and emotions focused on Him.
Christ’s final command to His followers is to “Therefore, as you go, disciple people in all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:19). Jesus wants us to teach disciples all that He commanded. By teaching what Jesus taught, the church becomes an extension of His ministry. Though this education must not be just a digestion of theology, but equipping people to obey all that Jesus commanded.
We place our value in fellowship of believers because it helps express love to one another and encourages good works (Hebrews 10:24-25), as well as to influences those who don't know Jesus Christ toward faith (John 13:35) .
"And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near" (Hebrews 10:24-25).
"By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another" (John 13:35).
We understand that the Good News is not simply for our own good, but we live to see this truth working for good in the lives of others and in the brokenness of this world. Jesus’ ministry was one of word and deed, and he proclaimed that His disciples would be witnesses even to the very corners of the earth. We recognize that a missional church seeks to meet the needs of communities both near and far by collaborating with partners who are committed to building sustainable ministries.
“The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; 38 therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest" (Matthew 9:37-38)
