- There is a Creator God.
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.
- Each of us have been created for a unique purpose.
Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you;
before you were born, I set you apart.
- God desires a personal relationship with each of us.
Yet to all who receive Him, to those who believed in His name,
He gave the right to be children of God.
- God has a plan for mankind.
For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.
- God has a strategy to fulfill His plan.
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.
- What is "everything I have commanded you ..."?
Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
- God has given us a practical example to follow, to complete His plan.
They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles
We are in the planning stage of outlining a Fellowship Tour. We know that as believers, from all ages, we are instructed to make disciples. How? It's simple, what worked for the apostles will work for you and me - it involves the simple strategy of EATING, READING and PRAYING over an extended period of time (an entire year).
According to the Pew Research Center - in 2010 there were an estimated 2.2 BILLION Christians worldwide. WOW! So, with 7.3 Billion people in the world - if each Christian had one disciple for a year, and repeated that for three years total. We could disciple the ENTIRE WORLD in three years!
We live during a time when faith and belief in God is losing relevance. There are people for whom being a Christian is a matter of life or death. There is global persecution of Christians. These can change. You and I were given an incredible gift of eternal life and a restored relationship with God. Let's share our joy with others.
If your enemy is hungry, give him something to eat.Our ministry is to take the message of discipleship to the nations and develop helpful resources for anyone who makes a disciple. Consider being a part of the fulfillment of God's plan for humanity.
If he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
