Church - Her Purpose

Commitment to Church

Ephesians 3:10 - so that through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known...

I see many churches and denominations today that no longer strive to make known the manifold wisdom of God. They have changed to meet the demands and desires of the people they want to attract, rather than proclaiming the manifold wisdom of God... Jesus Christ saves!

Sure as a church we want to reach people where they are at because that's what God did when He sent His Son. But the message of God's Word cannot change. Jesus Christ saves people from their sins!

We need to be careful to avoid becoming another product people just consume, we are not a concert, we are not a place of entertainment and we are not a social club. We are a blood brought people saved by Jesus Christ... and we want to spread this message far and wide.

Take a look at the first thing you read about Staines Baptist on the homepage of this website: "A CHURCH DEDICATED TO KNOWING JESUS AND MAKING JESUS KNOWN". This is what we are about, making known the manifold wisdom of God.

Commitment to church means dedication to knowing Jesus and making Jesus known. Are you ready for that journey?

Daily Bible Reading: Ephesians 3:7-10

Prayer: Father, we pray that through the church and her people Your manifold wisdom may be made known. Help us Father to focus on proclaiming Jesus, please make us a people marked by this reality. We pray that we would never waver or wander from this mission. In Jesus name. Amen.
