We put action to the Word Jesus gave us through the Apostle James and reach out with our faith.
What good is it, dear brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but don’t show it by your actions? Can that kind of faith save anyone? Suppose you see a brother or sister who has no food or clothing, and you say, “Good-bye and have a good day; stay warm and eat well”—but then you don’t give that person any food or clothing. What good does that do?
So you see, faith by itself isn’t enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless.
Now someone may argue, “Some people have faith; others have good deeds.” But I say, “How can you show me your faith if you don’t have good deeds? I will show you my faith by my good deeds.”
As it says in James 2:14-26, Faith without action is dead. We take the time to live out our faith in our community with action. Our acts of service through our MissionalMinistry include providing a listening ear, a helping hand and support to obtain the right services and care available to individuals in need.
Faith in Christ means to follow Him whom we call Lord. To love one another. Love in turn means to serve one another by helping and supporting one another. Scripture informs us that faith by itself, if it has no works, is dead.
Church is the body of Christ, a holistic community presence with different parts and identities. Being Christian, we follow Jesus in faith as a community. Following together, we serve together.
Literally to rise to a higher degree, to intensify, to magnify. As Christians we raise ourselves to a higher calling, we intensify, we magnify the command of Jesus to love.
We are called to make a difference, to help those less fortunate than us. To affect (causing emotion or feel) those in need by reflecting Christ’s love onto them.
Missionalministry means service, the end result of our Christian calling, to serve. God calls us—as individuals and as communities—to act on behalf of the vulnerable, weak, and oppressed while sharing the good news of God's kingdom being at hand.
STEAM - Serving Together Enhancing Affective Missionalministry
It is our desire through Community Unity to bring meaning into lives through the command that Jesus gave us to love one another and love our neighbours as ourselves.
Through our faith we reach out with works expressing that love. Together we use our talents and abilities to help those who are in need and doing for others what Jesus would have us do here.
It is our belief that that the Church of Jesus Christ is one that can effectively work at coming together in the unity of our faith, cross denominational lines and reach out to help those who are in need.
We call this “MissionalMinistry” which is an expression of authentic New Testament faith because we reach outside the church and into our community to meet the needs with acts of loving kindness.
