It was such a powerful Sunday at FLCNW as we welcomed our newest additions--Pastors Jason and Cathy Stonecipher. Pastor Debbie started the day with a message on the vision and mission of the church. God didn't say to "Go into all the world and preach the Gospel--unless it's hard." He simply said, "Go." We are to live for one thing: to see people saved and filled with the Holy Ghost. We all have to take ownership of the vision and mission of the church or we aren't going anywhere.
Proverbs 29:18 tells us, "Where there is o vision, the people perish: but he that keepers the law, happy is he." The church has no future unless its vision it greater than its memories. Jesus has faith bigger than His mind, will, and emotions. We cannot be moved by what we see. The Hall of Faith in Hebrews 11 believed without seeing. Hebrews 11: 39 says, "And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise." We have received the promise and therefore have no excuse not to lay hold of our vision through faith!
We are so excited to have Pastors Jason and Cathy by our side as we continue this journey to see our city, county, nation, and world saved!
