When we think of Paul’s testimony, we often think of how he came to know Jesus. While this is a powerful aspect of Paul’s testimony, it certainly doesn’t stop there. Jesus not only radically changes Paul’s life, but He also changes his mission and sends him out to accomplish it.
Throughout the book of Acts we see Jesus passionately pursuing the lost beyond Israel, and calling, equipping, and sending His people to actively join this mission. Join us as we continue our study of Jesus’ work in and through His people in Acts.

Every organization has a mission and a purpose for why they exist and what they seek to accomplish. But what about the local church? Join us as we discuss the purpose, mission, vision, strategy, and core values of our local church, and why it all matters.
Servanthood played a powerful role in how Jesus developed disciples. He served His followers and called them to likewise go and serve as He has served them. The same applies to us today. We grow as we serve.
