Life On Mission: Grow
1) WHAT do we do?
The mission of Lynn Haven United Methodist Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ who love God and love others.
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.”
Matthew 22:37-39 NIV
2) HOW do we do it? (See the discipleship path graphic at right)
Disciple = someone who is following Jesus, being changed by Jesus, and is committed to the mission of Jesus.
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Matthew 28:18-20 NIV
3) WHY do we do it?
We are commanded to Grow.
“…I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.”
John 10:10 NRSV
