On Earth As It Is In Heaven 2
As a church family, our hope is for our lives to be an active prayer for God’s kingdom to come and His will to be done on earth as it is in heaven. Our goal, as a church family, is for all we do to contribute to fulfilling this hope. Each week we plan to explore some aspect of our life and ministry in the light of this goal.
Our Vision For Christ Church Is To Be A Fully Functioning Embassy Of The Kingdom Of Heaven Where We Live The Life Of The Kingdom And From Where We Go Out To Do The Work Of The Kingdom.
What does an embassy of the Kingdom of Heaven look like?
Within the embassy, the ambassadors follow the constitution and laws of their native country. (Discipleship) “Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me.” John 14:21a
Within the embassy, the ambassadors live the way of life of their native country. (Worship, Service) “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Matthew 22:37-39
Outside the embassy, the ambassadors proclaim and demonstrate the benefits of their native country. (Mission & Outreach) “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.” Mark 16:15
The ambassadors create a welcoming environment, encouraging the local people to join them and become citizens of their native country. (Fellowship) “Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.” Romans 15:7
