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. The church on mission is the church as God intended, loving our neighbors as ourselves, and proclaiming the good news of redemption found in Jesus. In today’s church culture, the church is defined as successful if it has a large congregation, modern facilities, and a cool band that is...

  • “Neither Know We What To Do, But Our Eyes Are Upon Thee”
    This passage is found at the end of 2 Chronicles 20:12. More than we would like to admit, these words are very familiar to us in our daily walks: “Lord, we just don’t know what to do.” Unclear direction from the Lord never means a lack of fellowship with the Lord. In this chapter, Jehoshaphat […]
  • True Love
    The Song of Solomon is one of the books of the Bible that is often overlooked. Its pointed love theme nearly causes one to blush. Sadly, it may sound like “the way it used to be” with us. This, like all other Scripture, is God inspired for the same reasons any other book is written. […]
  • Enduring Is Not Enjoying
    Although we know that our faith in Christ is an objective, not a subjective feeling, we often find ourselves (or at least I do) mistaking our feelings as an indication of having inferior faith. There’s this little voice inside that conveys a message to my brain (a false message, I might add!) that when I […]
