Dear Church Members

Dear Friends,

I submit to you that today is the best day to commit yourself to the Great Commission. We have freedom of religion with all the mass media available for us. We shouldn’t have too many hindrances to outreach. The best outreach of course is the personal contact to an unbeliever (Romans 10:17). Unbelievers need someone "with skin on." They need someone that can help them to know God and how our God is operating in the world. Discipleship is possible to all believers through knowing him. We need to decide to grow as his disciples and part of this growth is to help others to become disciples. When we do this we are executing the Great Commission through our lives (Matt 28:18-20).

In these days we must ask the question: what I can do for the kingdom of God, who I can execute the great Commission through my life? Maybe you have a friend who is lonely or who doesn’t have a Church maybe he or she does not even believe in God. Maybe you have friend who has withdrawn from the fellowship. Now its time to pick up the phone, send a short message or encouragement through the social media and invite your friend to the Church.

How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, "Your God reigns!" (Isa 52:7)
