As the church, we are to bring Christ to the masses, not bring the masses to Christ. (Matt 28:19-20) In order to do this, we MUST “Be Christ” in the neighborhoods. Take God’s love to where people live and invest in them right where they are. We must build a church body that can meet the needs of continued discipleship at EVERY level of a persons walk with Christ.
We are about two things specifically – EVANGELISM and DISCIPLESHIP! Everything that we do in ministry MUST have both of those functions in their vision.
