A manifesto is a public declaration of one’s intention. In this series, we’ll explore the church’s manifesto and Journey’s manifesto – what will be proclaimed to our neighborhood, community, and world. It’s where our heart meets our community.
Between where we are today and where we’re headed in the future lies a gap. That gap can seem overwhelming and even impossible. But here’s the thing: we don’t have to find our way across alone! God goes with us and leads the way!
The church is engaged in a battle against the forces of darkness, and we're not capable of withstanding the attacks of the enemy on our own. However, God gives us what we need to be ready.
When it comes to the mission of the church, there is a lot more at stake than we often realize. The church is here to bring life and blessing from God to the world - not to wait for them to come to us.
When it comes to carrying out the mission that we have been entrusted with, it might seem like we are woefully under-equipped for the size of the task. But as Jesus demonstrates, little becomes much in His hands!
Why is the church here? To be a social club or a learning center? And better yet, why is Journey of Faith here? Jesus has some very specific plans for His church and those plans often aren't what we would expect.
