Who will walk through the doors?
As we embark on this capital appeal, Opening New Doors, we have reflected on our commitment to support it. We are paying it forward for the next generation and for those in the future who will come to know Christ and be part of a Christian community. We also know that we are benefitting here and now from these projects. We have confidence that God’s hand is behind our efforts and faith that the people with whom we connect through this campaign, including our outreach partners, will have their lives changed forever.
The 13th chapter of Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians is the famous love chapter. It elevates love to its proper stature of importance for all of us. It also guides us in putting our hearts right for giving our money. “If I give all that I possess and give myself over to hardship that I may boast, but have not love, I gain nothing.”
We encourage you to join us in showing our love for those who will join us in community and those who desperately need our love-drenched financial gifts throughout our city and the world. They will know we are Christians by our love.
