Sometimes we, followers of Jesus, make things a lot more complicated than they have to be. Our mission here at FCC is to lead people to Jesus, by growing in Jesus. It’s that simple. We ourselves have to be growing in Jesus before we can ever lead someone else to Jesus.
Our philosophy for how we do this is based on Jesus’ last words to His early disciples before He ascended to Heaven and sat down at the right hand of the Father, recorded in Matthew 28:18-20.
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore 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, to the very end of the age.”
SO HOW DO WE GROW IN JESUS?
to different people all around us carrying the message of the Gospel through our words and our works
WE’RE BEING BAPTIZED
by immersion into Jesus, identifying with His death and resurrection
WE’RE LEARNING AND DOING WHAT JESUS SAYS
instead of just talking about it
