serving

“Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms” (1 Peter 4:10)

Jesus came “not to be served, but to serve” (Mark 10:45) and “emptied Himself taking the form of a bond-servant” (Philipians 2:7).

Foundational to the Christian life is a heart and mind that gives oneself to serve and offer in love to others. A genuine heart of serving begins in the home, with the overflow seen within the church and the wider community. In every phase of life, a heart of service should be seen.

 For those desiring to serve within the life of the church, many opportunities are available. We believe that God has given every person talents to share. When we serve one another, we glorify God and encourage each other.

“from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by what every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love” (Ephesians 4:16).
