Learning to give our lives away for the sake of Christ is a continual journey. Thankfully we are empowered by the Lord’s grace to live in such a way and in the end, He is glorified for His working in and through us.
… what God intended for a church to be; a people of His own possession because of His GRACE and TRUTH found only through His SON Jesus Christ.
John 1:14 (ESV) 14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.
God gives GRACE and TRUTH through Jesus Christ to create worshippers that receive the FULNESS of JOY from Him and for Him!
John 1:14 is one of the most powerful passages found in the entire bible that teaches the creator God of the entire universe became a living HUMAN BEING so that He could take the penalty of death and justice away from His people and save them by putting Himself to death on a cross. The JOY OF THE CROSS and the fact that GOD has walked among MANKIND as a Savior is an amazing truth that should rattle us to the core of our thoughts and soul.
Join us as we journey together to display this GRACE in our pursuit of TRUTH in HIS wisdom and glory!
A Church To Be….
What is a church? Really? It often goes without much contemplation but in reality, the living and visible church is a gathering of people who are called out by God to live for His glory and to enjoy Him as their highest treasure, pleasure and joy!
As you contemplate the question, we want you to know a few things…
A CHURCH is not a place, but a people…
There is one body and one spirit–just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call–one Lord, one Faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. Ephesians 4:4-6
…A people who are not GROWN, but growing…
Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every oint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love. Ephesians 4:15-16
…growing worshippers for the GLORY of GOD!
In Him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in Him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory. Ephesians 1:13-14
With God, all things are possible in Christ, we will display God’s wisdom, Together
So that through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places. Ephesians 3:10
