Church on Purpose

Church is not an extracurricular activity. Church is an important and vital part of our faith journey. And that’s because the journey to grow in Christ is taken through the local church. Please listen carefully when I say this. The New Testament talks all about the Church, and it does not have a plan for growing us as Christians outside of the local church. Scripture leaves no doubt that God wants local congregations to be at the center of Christian ministry.

Church on Purpose: Witness

We are commissioned to go and to share the gospel. We will then see the work of the Holy Spirit as people become disciples. We are to baptize and teach these disciples. We are called to be Jesus witnesses. Acts 1:8 is a powerful reminder of how important it is for us to be witnesses for Christ.

Church on Purpose: Giving

To truly understand tithing and why we do it, we first have to understand the purpose of money, whose it really is, and what it means in our lives. The truth is our views of money may not align with God’s.
