When the church gathers together one of the most important things we do is worship the Lord. We may not all worship in the same way, but we worship the Lord. We exalt the Lord Jesus Christ and express our individual and corporate love for Him. As we sing praises to Him and express our heart, His presence is experienced and His Word is received so that together we hear the voice of the Lord regularly.

Fellowship is important for all believers and especially for new believers. Here the Christian finds encouragement and is strengthened and supported by sharing with others who embrace the same beliefs and are travelers on the same path to Heaven. The topics of conversation should be centered on Jesus and what He is doing in the individual’s life. This is more than having coffee together; more than complaining about the weather or giving a report about what you did on your recent days off or your annual holidays. This is Christ-centered conversation that encourages each believer to continue to grow and mature in the things of the Lord.
Before Jesus left this earth and went back to His Father in heaven, he commissioned his disciples with these words: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations…” (Matt. 28:19)
As a Christian learns and grows in the basic truths, they are reaching maturity and will actually become more and more committed to the faith. These principles to live by – learned as we are being discipled – allow our walk with the Holy Spirit and other believers to be stable and secure, rooted and grounded in the love of God.
Evangelism is the major work of the Church. We are called to continue the work of the Lord who came to “seek and save the lost.” We are called, empowered, and sent to evangelize the world – the whole world – and win people to the Lord.
This is our MISSION as believers – to go into the COMMUNITY in which we live and on a daily basis tell others of the difference that Jesus has made in our lives.
This means that every believer has a ministry they are to perform for the Lord. Every Christian has somewhere they can serve others in the Name of the Lord. They understand that there is always work that needs to be done and willingly pick up their task among the many that need to be accomplished. They see the Christian walk as a profession to be lived out and not just a set of beliefs to be embraced.
