Fulfilling God's Great Commission
Leading People to KNOW, GROW and SHOW His Love
The first step in our spiritual walk, is to KNOW God and to KNOW one another. The foundation of our Christian walk is to know and believe that Jesus is the Son of God, that He died for our sins, and was raised to life again. God makes Himself known to us as we worship Him on a regular basis and as He comes to us through His Means of Grace: His Word, Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. As the family of God here at St. Paul, we strive to know and care for one another and to share our joys and our challenges in life.
God also calls us as His people to GROW. Until we receive our glorified bodies in heaven, we are never done growing! As God’s people, we desire to grow in the knowledge of God and His great love for us. This happens through continuing to attend worship services on a regular basis, but even more through studying God’s Word. It is also important for us to know each other and to grow in relationship with one another. We do this as we worship together, share God’s peace and His gifts of grace, as we learn each other’s names and as we share our stories with each other.
God showed His great love for us by sending His Son to us. God also calls us as His people to SHOW our faith to one another and to the world. God fills us with the overwhelming desire to SHOW the world His love through our words and our actions. We do this by being His witnesses in the world as we proclaim His love with our words and as we demonstrate His love by sending missionaries and through personal involvement in service events and projects that are done out of love and benefit others with acts of kindness.
