I was asked recently if we were a non-denomination church or an inter-denominational church and my reply was…we are not out on an island by ourselves wanting everyone to be alike. We accept people…and we accept them as they are…and we let God mold and shape us into what He wants us to be and look like. Any given Sunday… right here in our own church living room …you name the church background and it’s here. You decide what we are!
Isn’t it marvelous how God’s Spirit allows us to accept one another as He has accepted us to bring glory to His name. I think the love and that acceptance is what identifies us as a living breathing part of the Body of Christ.
I know there are growing pains in our body. I just took two Advil before I starting typing this note and I wonder if the pains are physical or if they are spiritual. The journey we are on is much bigger than a building program. In the days to come I will share with you some big questions that God has been asking me about what I am willing to do to see His church arise in our community.
God has a vision for a church here in this area that He wants to see rise up to meet the needs of His children and to gather them unto Him.
I thank God for His “Awakening” in our hearts, minds and spirit.
