WE STRIVE TO ACCOMPLISH THESE GOALS BY:
SEEKING THE HEART OF GOD
I will turn my life over to God by REPENTING of my sins and being immersed in BAPTISM.
“Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ were baptized into his death? We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.” Romans 6:3-4
I will seek God by faithfully attending WORSHIP services at Meridian Woods.
“Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on towards love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another” Hebrews 10:23-25
I will seek God’s will and guidance in my life through PRAYER.
“And pray in the Spirit on ALL occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.” Ephesians 6:18
DEVELOPING THE HEART OF CHRIST
I will make studying the BIBLE a priority, and participate in BIBLE classes and LIFE groups.
“All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16
I will protect the unity of Christ’s church and support the leadership or our EDLERS.
“Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and mutual edification.” Romans 14:19
“Obey your leaders and submit to their authority. They keep watch you as men who must give an account. Obey them so that their work will be a joy, not a burden.” Hebrews 3:17
TOUCHING THE HEARTS OF OTHERS…
I will serve this congregation and the Lord by discovering my talents, equipping myself to use those talents for God, and developing a servant’s heart. I will invest time in ministry and helping others.
“Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.” 1 Peter 4:10
I will invest my money in the work of this Church by giving in proportion to how God has materially blessed me.
“But just as you excel in everything – in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in your love for us – see that you excel in this grace of giving.” 2 Corinthians 8:7
