Another aspect of growing closer to God in our daily life is in service to others.
Jesus was the ultimate servant by willingly helping us in the great cause of redemption. Since Jesus served us, His desire for us is to serve God by serving others. Jesus said, “If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: If any man serve me, him will my Father honour”. (John 12:26)
Our youth program encourages many opportunities to serve others, including service to our local community through home missions, service to the worldwide community through short-term missions teams, and service to other believers within the local church.
Our great commission tells us all to go and let our light or witness shine! Jesus said, “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid. Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven”. (Matthew 5:14 & 16) The scripture is obvious about our mission as Christians … Go share the love of God and the good news or gospel of Jesus with everyone in our world. Our goal is to get as many as possible. We want to equip every believer that a truly mature Christian will not keep his faith to himself, but will want to share the love of Christ with those in their world.
