What does it mean to be Missional?

  • Good Works
    Works do not save us, but a genuine faith will produce good works. Jesus Himself came to do the work of God, and we are called to follow His example. Jesus’ works didn’t make Him become the Messiah; they proved that He is the Messiah. Our works are the visible expressions of our faith. We […]
