Growing Families in Christ

WITNESS

Witness is the Great Commission; our very  reason for being the church - 'Go therefore and make disciples of all nations...'  Matthew 28: 18
It occurs anytime we proclaim Christ’s name in this world or share our faith in Christ's story with another.  It is when we extend the invitation to 'come and see' expecting that a person will encounter the one true living God and enter into new relationship claiming Christ as Lord.
Witness is always at a part of our ministries of NURTURE and OUTREACH.  WORSHIP is the primary coporate gathering where disciples encounter God's Holy Spirit for the purpose of praise, prayer, communion, and commission.   
By our words and deeds the name of Christ will be proclaimed in the world so that ‘every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.’
