Living Invitations 14

July 30, 2017

We are continuing our series called “Living Invitations” here on Online Ministry Training by looking at 2 Corinthians 5:13-15. In this message we talk about the importance of the church being a force not a fortress. We need to be out in the world loving people the way that Jesus did. Our acronym for force is:


We attempt to be a force by doing outreach that leaves people asking why we do it. Like giving away free ice cream in our ice cream truck or washing their car and giving them a dollar. We are hoping to break down any preconceived negative ideas people might have about the church. We also talked about love being what motivates us. The love of Christ compels us to proclaim the good news to those around us who do not yet know Jesus. This is our calling and it is where we experience the full and abundant, now and forever life that Jesus came for us to have.
