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...

  • Let’s Plant A Garden
    Scripture uses nature to teach us many lessons. For example, Christians are likened to farmers. Some plant, some water but it is “God who gives the increase.” What a challenge! You and I can be implements used in the Lord’s garden. And for each task there is a season. However, if we get our eyes […]
  • Faith In Fruitless Times
