Worship Service 9:30 to 10:45 AM
THE SUMMIT ASCENT
1. Where are we going?
Before Christ ascended into heaven, he left us with specific marching orders. The mandate before us is to "make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you …" (Matt. 28:18-20). We take that mandate seriously. Everything we do at Christ Fellowship is revolves around Christ's call to discipleship.
2. What will fuel our resolve?
At base camp, we take time to honestly assess the mission before
us—like a good mountain climber. What mindset shall we embrace? What are the foundational principles that will guide us? These are the kinds of questions we need to be asking as followers of Christ as we contemplate our journey. What are the bedrock values we must cling to as we make our ascent to the summit?
