Starting Point Eastridge Community Church. March is Reach The World month.
Would you believe a staggering 70 percent of the world’s population is still lost. An even more staggering 41 percent of the world’s population has never heard the gospel.
Me and Ken attended Starting Point today and plan on becoming Ministry Partners with Eastridge Community Church. I grew up with Trey the Executive Pastor at Oxford Baptist Church in the same youth group and had the blessing of him in my life as a young girl and now as an adult woman for some time now.
Those numbers are truly staggering to me. I could not believe it. So surely with my WordPress blog and my Covington News blog I will reach someone in those stats that need to hear the gospel and who Jesus was by sharing weekly of my lessons studied. I pray to reach at least one and that with all the other countries visiting my WordPress blog perhaps someone who has never heard of Jesus or the Gospel will be able to read my blog and discover Jesus, prayer and the Trinity. The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit as one. This week I will be blogging about Starting Point and The First Steps in Getting Connected.
Eastridge Community Church exists to Make Disciples who
Love God. Love People. Reach the World.
With Worship we ask ourselves Am I Attending and Sacrificing? With Abiding Am I Seeking & Following? Connect. Am I Developing Relationships & Growing? With Contributing Am I Serving & Multiplying My Gifts? Reach. Am I Loving my Neighbor & Going to The Lost? Multiply. Am I being Discipled in Order to Disciple?
Over the coming Spring weeks ahead I will be blogging of The First Steps in Getting Connected and my experiences at Eastridge and Celebrate Recovery.
Many Resources can be found at eastridgefamily.org
During the month of March I will be blogging of The Mission of The Church
The Strategy and 6 Keys.
What we believe.
Frequently asked Questions.
But you may visit eastridgefamily.org to learn more and to come and Join me in my Celebration with The Lord and at Church Service and Celebrate Recovery.
I hope during Reach the World Month I can come to reach others through my blogging and in my community and by being a living example to others at church by attending regularly.
The Mission of The Church
The Mission of Eastridge Community Church is to make disciples who Love God, Love People, and Reach The World.
The Mission is comprised of the two most important quotes of Jesus. The Great Commandment and the Great Commission.
“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law? Jesus replied: ” Love the Lord Your God with all your Heart and with all your Soul and With all your Min. This is the first and the greatest commandment. And the second is like It : ” Love your Neighbor as yourself.” All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.
Matthew 22 36 – 40
This passage helps us to understand that Loving God and People is at the heart of everything that God has done throughout History. We are to love God with our complete self and love others as we love ourselves. The second passage, The Great Commission can also be found in the book of Matthew.
Then Jesus cam to them and said, ” All Authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of The Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very en of the Age. Matthew 28 : 18-20
Both of these commandments have huge implications for our daily lives. In fact, without a vibrant relationship with God, we are incapable of such grand and selfless love. The Strategies of Eastridge are designed to nurture a balanced and vibrant relationship with God, through His Son Jesus. We hope to encourage, challenge and equip all of our Ministry Partners / Members. Our Strategy includes Six Essential Keys. These Keys represent the life of a growing believer. They are derived from these two scriptures, as well as, the entire Bible. Each Key has a question that is designed to act as a Spiritual Guage.
It was such a pretty March day here in Covington, GA USA and I took the opportunity for a moment to enjoy the blooming trees and the warm weather and felt touched after attending Eastridge and felt as though I need to be sharing not only with my community at my Covington News blog but with the World at WordPress about the Gospel and The Trinity.
WOW! March is Reach the World Month! I had no idea but I plan to encourage others to attend Eastridge and Celebrate Recovery. I have been posting over the last several weeks of my journey with Eastridge and Celebrate Recovery and you may join me at my Covington News blog to continue following me.
