Jesus lived a full life. He loved. He laughed. He battled. He worked. He rested. And through it all, relationships were paramount. We are saying the vision for East Coast this year like this:
But what happened to One Step and One soul? Actually, we still have those! They are a part of our values as a church. We will be teaching on these through the first weeks of the year and beyond.
You belong to this church before you believe or “behave.” This is the message of grace.
2. One Step
Everyone can grow, but each person has one step that God has for them to take next. You take them one step at a time; you don’t have to do it all in one day.
3. One Soul
Be the one to reach the one and bring them to Christ.
4. Generous Hearts
We give and add value, especially when it’s difficult because God blesses us to be a blessing.
5. Church is a Gathering.
We gather as friends and family, not a crowd of strangers. When church feels too big, we join in small groups to keep the relationships real.
6. Dream Team
We serve whenever and however is needed, thereby releasing the dream of God in each person's heart.
When you walk out these values, I believe your love for life will grow beyond what you could imagine.
Take the next 21 days to seek God. Follow in the life of Christ to bounce back into the life He is leading you toward.
Jesus, I commit this year to You. I ask You to show me the path of life, and I commit to walking that path one step at a time. Thank You for Your grace and mercy that leads me out of dark corners and into a peaceful place. I want to experience life fully, just as You intended. Amen.
Has my life changed in a way that is keeping me from being fully alive?
If so, what step could I take to bounce back to living a full and abundant life?
What is one way I can make sure to follow hard after God for these 21 days?
