Prayer in its highest form is agonizing soul sweat. Thus prayer is not a preparation for battle, it is the battle! We want to know that there is never a day when we assume that the kingdom of God can be advanced because of our energy or intellect. We hunger to make prayer more than an add-on in our life but truly the life blood of our church and our lives. (Call To Prayer: Sundays at 9:45am)
You never have to advertise a fire. Everyone comes running when the fire is raging. Likewise, if the church is on fire, you will not have to advertise it. The community and the world will soon discover it. The Lord didn't call us to be different for different sake; He called us to be different so that the world would know there is more to life than what they have experienced thus far.
The world outside is not waiting for a new definition of Christianity, it's waiting for a fresh demonstration that is authentic, transparent and life changing. More than any other time in history, the child of God needs to be asking what the Lord wants not what he or she prefers. We cannot keep one foot in the world and the other foot in His kingdom...we're either all in or we're not.
There can be no true expression of love and compassion in a piece of paper no matter how creative it might be. People need a touch from people not the latest program nor the coolest presentation, only lives truly change lives. And though only the Lord can change an eternity, He has chosen you and I to introduce people to the opportunity by planting one seed at a time.
In an ever shifting world, both within and without, the church is constantly bombarded with options. We strive to be a people who always default to Word of God for our decisions, to be unashamed of our convictions and truly seek to love the Lord with our whole heart, soul, mind and strength...not just one...working to deepen our faith, broaden our relationships and enhance our community of faith.
