    Serving God’s Mission Webinar

    "Avenues to Wholeness: Serving God’s Mission" Webinar

     
    On October 17, 2019 American Baptist Women’s Ministries hosted a webinar Avenues to Wholeness: Serving God's Mission. Joining God’s mission is integral in our quest for wholeness. Saying yes to the call of God to love and serve our communities is the first step towards an invigorating and exhilarating missional journey. Jesus empowers and equips his disciples to become his witnesses in the local and global communities; and he calls each believer to partner with him in this life transforming work. This webinar explored ways that we can take part in this essential aspect of Christian faith. 


    Get an idea of what was covered: 

    1.  Luke 10:1-4; Acts 1:8; John 20: 21-22; Matthew 5:48
    2.  Mission is inspired by the Holy Spirit.
    3. Mission is a mutual exchange of love and hope of Christ with others.
    4. Mission involves open minds to learn and grow. 
    5. Mission involves willingness to embrace and celebrate the differences in others, while standing firm in your faith in Christ.
    6. Mission started in the beginning. God sent the people out.
    7. One of the benefits of taking part in God’s mission is the opportunity to recognize the brokenness in the world, and the brokenness in ourselves.
