OUR PURPOSE STATEMENT: WHY WE EXIST AS A CHURCH
The purpose statement of The Spirit Church is derived from the final words of Jesus to His followers. These words are known as the Great Commission.
“The Spirit Church exists to reach people with the life-giving message of Jesus that they might become fully-devoted followers of Christ.”
THE GREAT COMMISSION:
“He said to them, ‘Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe…’ Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.”
“He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ. To this end I strenuously contend with all the energy Christ so powerfully works in me.”
