Trusting the Lord Jesus to Lead Us into This New Phase of Ministry and Mission
The gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ is a change agent. When it grips our hearts it changes us. When the gospel grips the life of a congregation, it begins to change. Our desire for Christ’s glory and the salvation of the lost becomes an ever-growing burden.
There are many perishing because they don’t know Jesus. Christ has called us to reach them with the good news. That means we are going to have to think deeply and creatively about new ways to do that.
The REACH Campaign offers a unique opportunity to First Presbyterian Church to re-examine our spiritual priorities and renew our vision to reach our neighborhood and our city with the gospel.
Our building is not a fortress, designed to keep a hostile world at bay. We are an embassy of the kingdom of heaven, whose mission is to invite lost people to become citizens of that new society through faith in Jesus. Our building needs to be a welcoming place for those seeking refuge in Him.
As you consider how you can support the REACH Campaign, pray for the Lord to give us hearts that are willing to follow His lead wherever He takes us in this new phase of ministry. Ask God to increase our faith and bring us closer to Him as we seek to know and love our neighbors.
