• LOST PEOPLE MATTER TO GOD. HE WANTS THEM FOUND.
    (LUKE 15)
  • PRAYER IS THE PRIMARY WORK OF GOD’S PEOPLE.
    We can not accomplish anything with out much prayer!
    “The prayer of the righteous avails MUCH”…James 5:16
    “Pray without ceasing”…1 Thes 5:17
    “praying at ALL times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication”…Eph 6:18
  • EVERYTHING WE HAVE BELONGS TO GOD. WE ARE SIMPLY STEWARDS OF ALL HE HAS ENTRUSTED US WITH.
    “The earth belongs to the Lord, and everything in it”…Psalms 24:1
  • TRULY HAVING A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD (KNOWING HIM) AND OBEYING HIS WORD IS A FUNDAMENTAL PART OF BEING A FOLLOWER OF CHRIST.
    “Anyone who loves me, will obey my teaching”…John 14:23
    “and teach them to OBEY everything I have commanded you.” Matt 28:19
  • COMPLETING THE GREAT COMMISSION WILL REQUIRE THE MOBILIZATION OF ALL OF HIS FOLLOWERS.
    “Therefore GO and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit”…Matthew 28:19
  • WITHOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT’S EMPOWERMENT, WE CAN ACCOMPLISH NOTHING.
    This was so important that Jesus didn’t send out the 12 disciples until they received the power from the Holy Spirit.
    “And now I will send the Holy Spirit, just as my Father promised. But stay here in the city until the Holy Spirit comes and fills you with power from heaven.” Luke 24:49, Acts 1:4
    The Apostle Paul said, My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not rest on men’s wisdom, but on God’s power (1 Corinthians 2:4-5).
  • FULLFILLING GOD’S PURPOSES WILL REQUIRE SACRIFICE AND SURRENDER, FOR THE SAKE OF THE KINGDOM, TAKING FAITH-FILLED RISKS AND EXPECTING CHANGE.
    “Jesus replied, “No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God.”…Luke 9:62
    Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.
