     Day 5: Our Vision: Real Purpose 

We strongly believe that everybody wants and needs real purpose and that real purpose is experienced through a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.  Real purpose is how we put our knowing and growing to work.  Therefore, we encourage people to pursue God-given opportunities that produce God-sized results by serving Him and others.

“Jesus came and told his disciples, ‘I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth.  Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.  Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.’” (Matthew 28:18-20)

“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” (Ephesians 2:10)
