a 5-Star Church (anniversary message)

“Everyone!”
Matthew 11:28

“Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.”
-President Theodore Roosevelt

Matthew 11:28

A 5-star church is a church where:

  1. Everyone is WELCOME

  2. Everyone CAN be SAVED.
    2 Peter 3:9

  3. Everyone has SOMETHING to OFFER.
    “Most people need serving experiences in which they can exercise their spiritual muscles.”
    -Pastor Rick Warren

  4. Everyone must ENGAGE in the MISSION.
    “World-class Christians know they are saved to serve and made for a mission. They are eager to receive a personal assignment and excited about the privilege of being used by God…Their joy, confidence, and enthusiasm are contagious because they know they’re making a difference.”
    -Doug Fields

2 ways you can engage in the mission of this church:

#1. INVEST

#2. INVITE


Week one: from reaching to making

DEFINING A DISCIPLE:
Matthew 4:19

What does it mean to be a disciple of Jesus?

We find 3 important attributes of a disciple.

  1. FOLLOW ME.
    John 3:30

  2. And I will MAKE you.
    Romans 8:29
    2 Corinthians 3:17-28
    Ephesians 3:14-19

  3. FISHERS of Men.
    Ephesians 2:10

So a true disciple of Jesus is someone who…

1. Is following Christ (Head);

2. Is being changed by Christ (Heart);

3. Is committed to the mission of Christ (Hands).

Colossians 1:28
