Between last Sunday and today we are focusing on the following two points of our vision and values:
We see a church…
- Loving Jesus in a way that people talk about.
- Where people find salvation & healing in Jesus.
This week we read about Matthew walking away from his old life to follow Jesus, in a new life.
Jesus has come for people who are aware of their spiritual need.
Today we read in Mark 6, about Jesus healing people who are sick and bringing freedom to people harassed by evil spirits, then teaching “repent of sin, turn to God”.
“new creation” – 2 Corinthians 5:17
“just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him. Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.” – Colossians 2:2-7
“search me o God” – Psalm 139
“ He personally carried our sins in his body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right. By his wounds you are healed.” – 1 Peter 2:24
“if we are living in the light, as God is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin.” – 1 John 1:7
City Harbor church…a safe place to find and follow Jesus.
We are taking “next steps” in following Jesus, becoming wholehearted devoted followers of Jesus. This includes healing and freedom.
Journey together. Walk alongside someone through it. We are following God’s guidance together. We use books to help us walk with someone on the journey.
