4G Theme GraphicWhat is the 4G Life?

 

It’s the habit of a person who follows Jesus.

 

Just four simple words describe the Christian life and mission mandates for the Church.

 

GLORIFY!  Every Christian is born of the Spirit to glorify God. Humanity bears a distinctive excellence above all creatures to declare the mighty praises of God, celebrate his infinite perfections, revel in his salvation, know his heart, and draw near to him through prayer. John 4:23-24, Matthew 6:33, 22:37, and 1 Peter 2:9.

Christians GLORIFY God.

 

GROW!  Every Christian is a learner who follows Jesus’ teachings. Healthy Christians thirst after grace and the knowledge of God. Living things grow and change. To follow Jesus is to deny yourself and obey his teachings. We must carefully learn to observe everything he commanded us. Matthew 4:4, Luke 9:23-24, 2 Peter 3:18, 1 Peter 2:2-3, John 15:5, and Psalm 107:9.

Christians GROW!

 

GIVE!  Every Christian wants to share their gifts. The heart of Christianity is giving and forgiving! Each person in God’s family has a gift to use for blessing others. God intends for each believer to be generous. We must be good stewards of our wealth and our abilities. 1 Timothy 6:17-19, Matthew 6:19-23, 1 John 3:16, Ephesians 4:7-16, Romans 12, 1 Corinthians 12, Acts 20:35, and Matthew 6:14.

Christians GIVE!

 

GO!  Every Christian has been sent to invite someone to meet Jesus.  Jesus commands us to invite sinners to learn about God’s grace. All sins are forgiven in Jesus’ name.  We invite anyone who is thirsty for God’s forgiveness to drink the water of life—freely. God’s house must be filled with thankful people from every tribe, tongue and nation. Matthew 28:19-20, Acts 1:8, Luke 14:15-26, and Revelation 22:17.

Christians GO!

 

In obedience to Jesus Christ our Savior, LORD, and Head, the Glad Tidings Community Church Membership and Leadership Team pledges to closely follow these mandates with continual, sacrificial and loving devotion. This will always be our passion.
