Words from the Pastor
Here we are just returning from our 206th Annual Conference. Ready to enter a new season. With changes, comes uncertainty, but with God comes surety.
Proverbs 3:5-6 (KJV) says “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”
Our Pastors, Minsters and the church (you) are called by The Holy Spirit to teach and preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ, so that we all can learn, have hope and spread hope to everyone. As we go into this New Conference year, let’s go into it knowing that “Discipleship Matters.” All of us are charged to go out and make disciples
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.”
Let’s rely on the Holy Spirit as our great helper in order to minister and make disciples.
…………………………….” Are you a Disciple or JUST a Christian” ………………………………
When the question is posed to us ” Are you a Disciple or JUST a Christian?” it should make us pause. The word “JUST,” means that we have settled at only being a Christian, when Jesus calls us to be more than hearers of the Word, that we should also be doers of the Word. A true Christian is a Disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ and is more than willing to make more disciples. In this conference year, let’s make a difference in the world starting at home, first with our family, work and then in the community.
Through our prayers and obedience to the Holy Spirit, we will become rich in Spirituality.
Rev. J. Anthony Jones, Pastor
