Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

November 20, 2010 (our spiritual mission)

our spiritual mission

“We must repudiate our confused loyalties
and concerns for the passing world
and put aside our misguided efforts
to change culture externally.
To allow our thoughts, plans,
time, money, and energy
to be spent trying to make
a superficially Christian America,
or to put a veneer of morality over the world,
is to distort the gospel,
misconstrue our divine calling,
and squander our God-given resources.
We must not weaken our spiritual mission,
obscure our priority of proclaiming
the gospel of salvation,
or become confused about our spiritual citizenship,
loyalties and obligations.
We are to change society,
but by faithfully proclaiming the gospel,
which changes lives on the inside.”
- John MacArthur
