We Are the Church

What role do I play in people coming to Jesus?

Text to Read: Romans 10:13-15 NLT

Main Points:

  • Every believer has been given a mission by God to advance his kingdom and bring home his lost children.

  • Paul’s four steps of salvation:

    • 4) Everyone who calls on Jesus will be saved.

    • 3) They must believe the message of the Gospel.

    • 2) They must hear the message from somewhere.

    • 1) Someone needs to share the message.

      • God has given YOU the responsibility to share the message!

  • We will share the good news with others when we have a missional mindset, not a selfish one.

We Are the Church: A Part of the Whole Body of Christ

Text to Read: 1 Corinthians 12:12-27 NLT

Watch the message:

The Main Points:

  • In the body of Christ, everyone has a role, and no role is too small.
  • Too often, you miss out on the purpose God has for you because you are looking inward instead of outward.
  • Jesus modelled the ultimate act of serving others for their benefit and for God's glory, and he taught that we are to follow his example.
    • Action Step: All believers should actively seek to serve the body of Christ (ie, the Church). We must serve, not sit!
