We want to help people to know God, continue knowing God and continue growing in the knowledge of God. It’s why we worship, do small groups and preach the Word of God. If we will learn to know God, then actually everything else is possible, but if we don’t figure out that part, then none of the other stuff works. To know God is one of the underlying principles of everything we do.
Philippians 3:10 – “. . . that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death . . .”
We want to live in the freedom God gives us through Jesus Christ, to be free of sin, free of sickness, free of financial burden, free of anxiety, free of mental illness, and the list goes on and on. If the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed!
John 8:36 – “Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.”
If we’re not living out our God-given purpose, we are not growing and progressing and making a difference in our world. We want to make a contribution beyond ourselves, to fulfill the reason God created each of us.
Philippians 3:12 – “Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.”
