Ordinary Living with Gospel Intentionality

March 6, 2016 | Colossians 4:2-6 | community, evangelism, gospel

Over the next few weeks we will be discussing how we can make the gospel the center focus of our lives by building relationships, sharing the gospel, and introducing people to our community of believers. Together, these three activities will not only result in a gospel centered lifestyle for us, but it will create an invitational culture in our church that will bring those far away from God into the Kingdom. This week we want to focus on the first strand of the three, which is building relationships with unbelievers by living with gospel intentionality.

Do you have a growing concern for the spiritual condition of others?

May 18, 2014 | Philemon 1:4-6 | discipleship, evangelism

When we come to Christ, we come for ourselves. We come needing for ourselves. But having received Him, He makes us see others. He makes us want to help others. Who are you concerned for today?
