Turn the World Upside Down (Part 2)

We exist to glorify and enjoy God by knowing him and making him known. The unstoppable force that propels this is love from the Spirit - loving our Lord Jesus Christ with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and loving our neighbor as ourselves. With this in mind, we want to provoke a reformation to honor Christ as the saving Lord!

Since we want all men to confess Jesus Christ as Lord, we need to remember those key practices we have singled out as starting levers to begin making disciples of Jesus Christ. I will be posting these on the blog and printing them in our bulletin over the next few weeks so that we can refresh our minds and renew our commitment to these practices which turn the world upside down!

Make corporate worship the focal point of the church's activity.

The church can do many things, but all of them drive toward this. If we worship God aright as a body, the rest of life will tend to fall into line with this eternal perspective. By doing this, we make clear that Jesus is the saving Lord who is calling out a people for his name's sake.
