Q. What will happen if we connect people to God’s next step for their life?
A. Multiplying More and Better Disciples
That’s the short answer…
This is the vision of ConnectUs Church:
ConnectUs Church provides an exciting and thriving experience when the church gathers together and partners with God in the community. We value church planting and will be multiplying disciples and churches across Central PA and beyond.
While we want to be a church beyond our walls, something has to happen in our church. Why not make it great! Using a variety of different methods and strategies to best engage our world and make God’s Word come to life we will provide an exciting and thriving experience. There is nothing better than to see God working in someone’s life. When sin is confessed, healing happens. When forgiveness is chosen, burdens fall away. When love is shared, relationships flourish. When grace is offered, we can overcome anything. When we worship, we are living for the purpose for which we were created.
But, to be a church beyond our walls, we need to constantly realize that it’s not all about us. God is at work in our community. He is at work in other churches, in our offices and workspaces, in our homes, and in our vehicles. God is at work all around the world in so many different ways. If that is true, and I believe that it is, then let’s partner with what God is already doing! Let’s throw fuel on the fire of people, ministries, and churches that are allowing God to use them to reach people. Let’s show up in places that people aren’t quite sure God would actually go there and seek out where God is up to something. I don’t want to miss out!
When we do accomplish the Great Commission that Jesus gave his followers to accomplish lives are changed and Jesus followers are really living for His Glory. When people are reached and come to faith in Jesus and grow in their faith, communities of faith spring up. It’s very difficult to follow Jesus in isolation. God didn’t design it that way. That is why we value the church and starting new churches. When we multiply more and better disciples we must always be thinking about the next thing. What does it look like to connect people in Lancaster to God’s next step for their life? Whatever it looks like, let’s do it! What does it look like to connect people in Harrisburg to God’s next step for their life? What about Delaware? Utah? God is at work in these places and all around the world. When we partner with Him we realize that we’ve got to expand our vision. The good news of the gospel spreads like wildfire. Let’s keep in step with what God is doing and rely on Him to make it happen.
