WHAT ON EARTH AM I HERE FOR?
God created us for a purpose. He loves us and has intricately designed each of us for a specific mission. For everything, absolutely everything, above and below, invisible and visible...everything got started in Him and finds its purpose in Him. (Colossians 1:16 MSG)
God created you for 5 purposes:
Worship - you were planned for God's pleasure. "You, God, created everything, and it is for your pleasure that they exist and were created."Revelation 4:11 (NLT)
Fellowship - you were formed to be part of God's family. "See how very much our heavenly Father loves us, for he allows us to be called his children, and we really are!" - 1 John 3:1 (NLT)
Discipleship - you were created to become like Christ. "Let your roots grow down into Christ and draw up nourishment from him. See that you go on growing in the Lord, and become strong and rigorous in the truth." - Colossians 2:7 (LB)
Ministry - you were shaped for God's service. "We are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." - Ephesians 2:10 (NIV)
Mission - you were made to tell others about Christ. "Jesus said, "Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, the the very end of the age." - Matthew 28:19-20 (NIV)
Connecting people to Jesus through worship, fellowship, discipleship, ministry, and outreach.
