Annual Report – Special Edition
Our focus for adult discipleship is evolving into an emphasis on Missional Community. A Missional Community is a family of Missionary Servants who make disciples who make disciples in the everyday stuff of life. (Matthew 28:19-20)
Missional communities are groups of believers who live and experience life together like a family. They see God as their Father because of their faith in Jesus. This means they love one another as brothers and sisters.
Our identity in Jesus also makes us missionaries sent by the Holy Spirit to proclaim the good news of the kingdom.
A missional community is more than a bible study or a small group that cares for other believers. A missional community is made up of Spirit-led people who do life together for the mission of making disciples of a particular people and place.
We also live together as servants. A missional community serves those around them as though there are serving Jesus. Jesus commanded us to make disciples who believe the gospel, are established in a new identity and are able to obey all of his commands.
The missional community is the best context in which this can happen through life on life, in community, on mission.
