This is the inreach/outreach ministry of ONE Baptist Church. It’s our opportunity to offer HIS touch, through us, to others.
God has spiritually gifted every member to exercise their gift and talents for the body that He died for, and...it is for His glory!
Serving is what the God who bought me, is fully expecting of me. (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)
Salvation did not come by anything we did (Ephesians 2:8-9); however, we were created to be workers (Ephesians 2:10) to accomplish what God wants done. The Christian life is about bringing glory to God right now.
Serving is an incredible opportunity and privilege. (Psalm 100:2-4)
God allows us to participate in what He is doing. Serving the Lord is not something that we should have to do, it is something that we GET to do!
Serving is the key that allows us to override and resist the spotlight being on “me.” (Psalm 115:1)
Service has the potential to allow us to be part of something more than we could imagine. It is not about us, it’s about Him. It is hard to be consumed with self when you are consumed with serving others!
Serving keeps me continuously connected to Jesus’ heart. (Romans 8:29; John 12:26)
Jesus' earthly ministry was characterized by serving others. If we are to be connected to His heart, service ought to characterize our lives.
Serving is visible “proof” to God of the surrender of my heart. (Deuteronomy 8:2)
People can put on a front acting like they are serving God but really are just looking for others to look at them and say, “good job.” Real service is not caring if anyone notices; and therefore, genuine service is genuine proof of surrender.
