as I mentioned in my last blog, God has shown me some of the exciting projects He has in-store. One of the visions is to establish a Christian Fellowship, a place where Christians can meet to worship and fellowship "in Spirit and in Truth." Here on earth we have so many labels, but these will either 'burn off' if you go to hell, or will 'fall off' when you enter heaven.
The bible indicates that we are to 'Love one Another' and in doing so all men will know that we are His disciples John 13: 34-36. If we are to reach a fallen world we must first demonstrate our love for each other, setting aside our labels that seperate us and focusing on what unites us. So let me explain about B:1:2. This vision is aimed predominately towards youth, but not solely for youth.
B:1:2 Christian Fellowship will be an alliance of evangelical Christians in the Falkirk Area.
B:1:2 will be a body of serving evangelical Christians in Falkirk whose 'membership' is made up of many denominations, churches, organisations and individuals who believe that Jesus Christ is “The Way, The Truth and The Life” He is the only means by which we can have a relationship with God.
B:1:2 promotes unity and truth, acts as an evangelical voice to the town, society and the wider church, and works collaboratively with members and other evangelicals, to present Christ credibly as good news for spiritual and social transformation. Our goal is to promote a ‘uniting to change society, and engaging with the disengaged’
B:1:2 has been birthed to encourage Christians to fully engage in their communities as responsible citizens, and we strive to make evangelical truths publicly accessible.
Our emphasis is on Christian young people meeting to worship together and encouraging them to serve their communities by supporting one another in love. The youth of today get such bad press, perhaps it is time we had some 'Good News' stories? The vision God gave me did not include only young people, but people of all ages. I keep hearing it said that "The young people are the Church of the future" I believe that they are the Church of today.
"Your life is the song that you sing, and the whole world is listening"
Jesus called is disciples, is he calling you to B:1:2? Whatever we are in Christ Jesus, you can B:1:2
It is anticipated that we will organise an event for the Thursday the 8th October 2009 @ 07:30pm, and see what God does. Then it will be the second Thursday of each month, venue to be confirmed. Please pray about this venture, tell your friends and most importantly prayerfully consider coming along.
