Seasons of Discovery

The Purpose of the Church: Why Church

It’s a new season in multiple ways. High School football and volleyball are well underway. The leaves are starting to turn on multiple trees. This is also a new season in our church. Over the upcoming weeks we’re going to pray and learn how to more effectively reach our community with the good news of Jesus Christ.

God’s mission has always been to “seek and save the lost.” The marvel is that the Lord invites us to discover and discern what He is already up to in our neighborhoods and communities. Then He calls us to join Him. Obviously, we can advance the kingdom of God far better by interacting with our neighbors than by merely talking about this within the walls of our church.

In the past, evangelism was all about inviting the community to the church. Because the world today generally views the church as being irrelevant, our approach has to be vastly different. Now it’s about the church intentionally going into the community and building bridges through relationships and service. Where we used to see ourselves as “inviters” to church, now it’s about being “missionaries” sent into our neighborhoods and community. Are you ready to meet this challenge empowered by God’s Spirit and grace?!
