LIVE LIKE CHRIST
1 Thessalonians 5:12-22
We believe we are to live for Christ. As believers, we must put Christ first in our lives and seek him daily. In order to do this, we need the peace of Christ to remain and rule inside of us. Simply stated, to live for Christ means knowing, loving, serving, and glorifying God. We believe this is our hearts response to the work the Lord has done in us.
LOVE LIKE CHRIST
When asked, what is the greatest commandment, Jesus said: "You shall love the Lord your God with all of your heart, all of your soul and with all of your mind." The second is, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. In order to see the Lord's work in us, we must demonstrate kindness, patience and gentleness. To love like Christ is to love not only Him, but our family, friends, and yes, even strangers!
LEAD OTHERS TO CHRIST
We all matter to God. We all have a purpose, and living for Christ and loving like Christ causes us to want what God wants. It is His will that no one misses out on the opportunity to experience Gods love. We are instructed to "Compel them to come in, so that my house will be full." (Luke 14:23). We must share our faith with our family, friends, and others.
