Church should be about life change!
LivE worship & relevant biblical teaching are a catalyst for life change
I believe that one of the things that should matter most to a church is that lives are changed. I believe that life change can happen through many different ways. But I believe that it happens most often when the body of Christ gets together. I believe it happens most when people are excited about what is going to happen in the gathering of the church. I believe it happens most when people know that when they get together that God is going to be worshipped and that the Gospel message is going to be shared. I believe it happens most when the church gathers together and sees life change happen in the gathering. Now I know there are people that are going to say well that is a nice idea but that just is not true that just does not happen today.
Well, if you are a person that says that then I want you to know then you have a problem with the Bible. As I read through the Bible it happens a lot in fact it happens so often that through out the book of Acts they start to keep track of all the people that respond. Acts 1:15 (NLT) “120 believers were present”, Acts 2:41 (NLT) “and added to the church about three thousand that day,” Acts 2:47 (NLT) “And each day the Lord added to their group those who were being saved.”
Nothing has changed from that time until now except the people of the church. I believe that this can, does, and will happen. By the authority of the Bible I believe that live worship and relevant biblical teaching is the catalyst to life change. We are not going to be a church where we are there to be silent. We don’t do that at a football game. Why should we at church? We don’t do that at a party. Why should we at church? My prayer and vision for our gatherings are that they will be exciting and alive. That our gatherings will be a place that people are excited to come too. That the men of the families will not have drug problems. They will not be DRUG to church by their families. That they will not leave skid marks from the parking lot to inside. That these gatherings will be a place where people run head on into the saving message of Jesus Christ. We are going to be unapologetic about Jesus and that through the gospel message lives will be changed.
