One of our strongest values we hold dear to our hearts, one that we feel is God inspired, and God entrusted to us, is to be always focused on the strengthening of God’s Church. We believe that all people, who have recognized the forgiveness of God in their lives, are called to leadership in the Church. We believe that because of this it is imperative that we are living for the life that Christ came to give us, eternal life.
As we prepare to move to Poland we are reminded that our calling to the Polish people is full of expectations, not of human directive, but of Jesus’ own words:
18 Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. 19Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. 20 Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
So, what does this look like? That’s a lot of blog posts… however, we know it will be loving people to the point where they can recognize their sin, receive God’s forgiveness, be reborn into life with unconditional love, be empowered to do what Jesus did, and be called to raise up the Church community around them to do the same. The details will change, the outward expression will change, and people will be challenged, but the love of God covers all.
We are excited and ready to see God’s hand move, his love cover, and the circle of life, the Polish people being empowered to go to the nations, come full circle!
