Relationship With Jesus

He ENGAGES us where we are and pursues us without stopping
Matthew 15: 4-6
Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts in on his shoulders and goes home.

He EQUIPS us with all we need
2 Timothy 3:16-17
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

He EMPOWERS us with his spirit
Romans 8:4

Jesus does for us everything the holy law requires. The power of sin should no longer control the way we live. The Holy Spirit should control the way we live.

Relationships With Individuals
Healthy personal relationships thrive when time is invested and trust is built, truth is at the core, empathy is expressed and communication is always open. This will lead to love.
John 13:34
"A new command I give you; Love one another.  As I have loved you, so you must love one another."

Relationships With Community
Community relationships are driven by principles that create unity. Demonstrating quality character and ethical values provide platforms of respect and encouragement that create long-term relationship commitments.
John 17:23
"I in them and you in me - so that they may be brought to complete unity.  Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me."
