Why Are We Here?

 

We will glorify God by inviting all people to KNOW, HEAR, and RESPOND to Jesus Christ through relationship.
 
 
KNOW:
  • Philippians 3:10-11 (AMP) 10 [For my determined purpose is] that I may know Him [that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His Person more strongly and more clearly], and that I may in that same way come to know the power outflowing from His resurrection [which it exerts over believers], and that I may so share His sufferings as to be continually transformed [in spirit into His likeness even] to His death, [in the hope] 11 That if possible I may attain to the [spiritual and moral] resurrection [that lifts me] out from among the dead [even while in the body].

HEAR:

  • John 10:27-28 (AMP) 27 The sheep that are My own hear and are listening to My voice; and I know them, and they follow Me. 28 And I give them eternal life, and they shall never lose it or perish throughout the ages. [To all eternity they shall never by any means be destroyed.] And no one is able to snatch them out of My hand.
  • Luke 4:4 (AMP) 4 And Jesus replied to him, It is written, Man shall not live and be sustained by (on) bread alone but by every word and expression of God.
  • Romans 10:17 (NASB) 17 So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.

RESPOND:

  • John 10:27 (AMP) 27 The sheep that are My own hear and are listening to My voice; and I know them, and they follow Me.
  • James 1:22 (AMP) 22 But be doers of the Word [obey the message], and not merely listeners to it, betraying yourselves [into deception by reasoning contrary to the Truth].
