Pastor John’s Covenant Commitment
Foster Your Friendship With the Father
Malachi 4:6 NLT
His preaching will turn the hearts of fathers to their children, and the hearts of children to their fathers.
Facilitate Your Faith Journey
Ephesians 4:11-13 NLT
Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ. This will continue until we all come to such unity in our faith and knowledge of God’s Son that we will be mature in the Lord. Measuring up to the full and complete standard of Christ.
Fellowship With a Family of Friends
There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you slaves, beause a master doesn’t confide in his slaves. Now you are my friends, since I have told you everything the Father told me.
Hebrews 13:7, 17-18 NLT
Remember your leaders who taught you the word of God. Think of all the good that has come from their lives, and follow the example of their faith. Obey your spiritual leaders, and do what they say. Their work is to watch over your souls, and they are accountable to God. Give them reason to do this with joy and not with sorrow. That would certainly not be for your benefit. Pray for us, for our conscience is clear and we want to live honorably in everything we do.
