Pastor Jeff is back and continues our GO series with a message on hospitality! Every believer is a missionary whether we feel like it or not. At the same time, we are not all called to be preachers and to ‘convert the masses’. So what does it look like for us to follow Jesus’ example in mission? What is one thing we can all do to participate in God’ mission in the world? Listen here to find out!
Jesus gave one simple piece of instruction to the church as they were about to get started: GO. “Go and make disciples of all the nations.” (Matthew 28:19) Or, in other words, to go and introduce people to a God who loves them and then to teach them how to be followers of Jesus. According to Jesus, this is to be the mission of the church: Evangelism and Discipleship, living as missionaries in our world. But how many of us actually live this out? And what does it look like to “GO” while we ‘stay’, living as missionaries in today’s world?
Join us this summer as we unpack how we can join God in His great redemptive story and find our place in His mission.
Eric Versluis, from Parkway Pentecostal Church in Greely joins us this morning! Eric is continuing on in our GO summer series, and today spoke on Jonah. Listen here!
Someone once said, “Preach the Gospel at all times, and if necessary use words.” It’s a nice idea… but it’s not in the Bible. The reality is that evangelism (the ‘E’ word!) must include both word and deed,but often we are pretty uncomfortable with the word part. So how can we get better at proclaiming the good news of Jesus with our words? What are some practical things we can do to better at evangelism in our neighbourhoods? Listen here to find out!
Jesus said that the greatest commandment is that we should God's love with everything we are and that we should love our neighbour as ourselves. But who exactly is our neighbour? And what does it mean to love our neighbour as ourselves? And how is this commandment related to the mission that God has given His church? Listen here to find out!
God is the ultimate missionary. He comes after us when we walk away, pursues us when we’ve given up, and loves us when we believe we are unlovable. He comes down to our level and invites us in, even though we don’t deserve it. It's His mission to “seek and save the lost” (Luke 19:10).
So, how does seeing God as the ultimate missionary shape the way we understand the Gospel and the mission He was entrusted to us - the church (i.e. God’s global missions agency)? Listen here to find out!
