We need to be equipped so that we may be ready in and out of season. The purpose of a pastor is to build up the saints, and our goal should be to raise people up in their knowledge of Christ. Our faith should never rest on another man but only in Jesus Christ. All we have to do to be prepared is follow Jesus.
Everything we do at LHFC is to reach the world for Jesus. We lift up Jesus so that all will be drawn towards Him. Imagine what the world would be like if we thought of other people as more important than ourselves. God does not love us for the things we have or haven't done; He just loves us in spite of everything. There is a desperate need for Christ.,
God is love which is a foreign concept to many. He loves us all. We were not worthy of God's love, but he gives it to us anyways. The people who need love the most are sometimes the hardest to love. Let us stir up love and good works. "Someday we'll see Jesus, eyeball to eyeball" - Joseph Kobel
We can be saved, but still not receive the empowerment of the Holy Spirit. God has many gifts for us not just one, and wants us to eagerly seek them out. We're very good at putting God in a box, but He cannot be contained. If we who are evil can bless our children, how much more will our Father give us if we just ask? We need God's power!
Who we are We do not have to do anything spectacular, we just have to put our faith in Jesus. Jesus is the same throughout the ages. The main elements of our faith are to affirm conviction that the word of God is true, this will cause a personal surrender to Jesus, which then is reflected in our conduct.
