Our church has had a heart for sharing the good news of Jesus since it’s inception. It was started by a flying evangelist – a very creative guy who was doing things few were doing. He actually sold his airplane to buy part of the lot our church sits on. The church can never be about itself – it most always choose to be about what is happening outside it’s walls. Not in protest or being known for what it is against, but rather being known for what it is for. We are for God, for people and believe that people matter to God.
Coca Cola has a mission – to get a can into everyone’s hand. 73 million will have a coke in their hand by the end of day… But that isn’t good enough for Coke they want to get it in more hands. Pepsi says: “We want more of our product into people’s hands.” Coke said, “we have to move quicker and think more creative because we don’t want so many people moving to false coke.” We must be willing to do whatever it takes to get the “The Real Thing” into the hands of everyone! It is the only way to become the church that God intended. When Jesus called His disciples, He had one simple phrase. Follow me and I will teach you how to fish. It is what the flying evangelist was doing and what we must do. Follow Jesus and if you follow Him you too will be fishing. To Follow is to Fish.
Let’s go fishing.
