What do these mean?

Who agrees with this?

  • Seeking is the awakening of our faith in Christ
  • Saving is the reward and commission of our faith in Christ
  • Serving is the ongoing nature of our faith in Christ

What is Seeking as a mission for the church?

  1. It is Selecting the course of life we will follow (seek first the kingdom of God).
  2. It is Saying “no” to distractions and competing suitors (you turned to God from idols)
  3. It is Searching actively the will of God to obey (pressing on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus)

What is Saving as a mission for the church?

  1. It is Surrendering our lives to Jesus (whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake shall keep it to eternal life)
  2. It is Sharing our faith with others (go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them…)
  3. It is Suffering with Him as we share the gospel (it is through many tribulations that we must enter the kingdom of God)

What is Serving as a mission for the church?

  1. It is Shaping our lives into Christ’s (be imitators of me as I am of Christ)
  2. It is Shining our light for Christ (let your light so shine that men may see your good works and glorify your Father)
  3. It is Storing up treasures in heaven (as much as you did this to the least of these my brethren, you did it unto Me)
