To him be glory both now and forever.

What does it mean to be Missional?

As the people of a missionary God, we are entrusted to participate in the world the same way He does—by committing to be His ambassadors (see John 20:21; 2 Corinthians 5:20). “Missional” describes the perspective to see people as God does and to engage in the activity of reaching them.

  • Deliverance
    The Scriptures reveal our God as Deliverer. David recorded this;(2 Sam 22:1,2) so did Paul(Rom 11:26). The only message in the entire universe that frees sinful, fallen man is the gospel of Jesus Christ. As Christians we need to cling to this liberty that Jesus Christ has given us. Interestingly enough, many people seem to […]
  • Instruction – A Forgotten Need
    The Hebrew word for instruction means correction resulting in education. The word also carries the thought of discipline or chastisement. We must not forget that God’s Word is given “for doctrine, reproof, correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” Let’s face it; we […]
  • Flashlight or Floodlight?
    Revelation 21:23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. In the design of God, every part of the body of Christ has a distinct expression of light, which is unique […]
