What My Church Does Right
What I like about my church is that it is vivid, receives new people in a very warm way, and I can perceive the presence of the Holy Spirit in it's ministries. I also like the fact that we are taught from the pulpit: "come to worship, leave to serve." Walmir Macedo, Brazil While in college, I started going to the church I have attended for the last five years because it was right across the street and I wanted to check it out. But as soon as I began attending, I wanted to make this my "home away from home" church. I first became involved with their high school ministry on Sunday nights, then home groups, and now I'm a part of the young adult ministry on Wednesday nights. I love this church because it is made up of a bunch of people who desire to be the hands and feet of God in this world. This is a place where anyone is welcome and can call it home. It is our goal in life to be the followers of Jesus, doing whatever he does and going wherever he goes. Ryland M. Lundy, Illinois I like the doctrine of the Church of the Nazarene. It is one of the few churches that has not forgotten its objective: to proclaim and live holiness. In my local church, I appreciate the way we work as a team toward a common objective. Even though there is diversity among the ministries, there is unity among the youth and devotion to God. Esmeralda Casas, Coahuila, Mexico What my church does right . . .
- Our church does a great job of frequently reminding the congregation of our focus: To know God, to grow in our love for Him, and to share the gospel with those who don't know Christ.
- The way this church chooses to show others the love of God is awesome. Their constant service to unreached members of our community is unbelievable. The best part is that their programs, opportunities, and ministries are directed outwardly. What a tremendous way for the family of God to show His love. No excuses here for not participatingthere's some way for each of us to do the work! Lynn Roney, Kansas
