Our mission is to encourage one more life to love God and love others.
When Jesus was asked about the greatest commandment, he said “love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and Prophets hang on these two commandments” (Matthew 22:37-40 NIV).
The more we learn about God’s love for us, the deeper our love for him develops. God has always desired us to love Him. Through our own intimate relationship with God we better understand how to extend love to those who live and work around us.
While learning about God, we understand that lost people matter to God, and if they matter to God, they better matter to us. Out of the love for Him we are compelled to love others just as he loves them. God wants his love for us to be contagious in our relationships with others. This love we extend is not just an emotion or expression: it is a choice and an action.
“When he (Jesus) saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd” (Matthew 9:36 NIV). Everywhere we look, we see people who are far from God. These are the people that Jesus would want us to reach. Our goal is to reach the non-Christian and we will be intentional about this every step of the way.
Our plan is to begin the process of building teams of people who want to encourage one more life to love God and love others. When we are in a growing relationship with God, intentionally surrounding ourselves with lost people, and willing to have compassion and take action, we believe we can make a difference in the lives of people, one life at a time. We will love God, love others and encourage everyone to reach out to just one more family, one more person, and one more chid.
