A - Plan A: We Share a Better Way. There is No Plan B.

  • Plan A: We Share A Better Way. There is No Plan B. God's Plan A for the world to hear about His love is that we live a lifestyle of sharing our faith through our actions and words everywhere we go. There is no Plan B. Jesus said, “Go to the people of all nations and make them my disciples. (Matt.     28:19) As ministers, we show people that Jesus came to give them life (John 10:10).  We live a life that honors Christ and draws people to Him.  We look for every opportunity to share our STORY of how Christ has set us free.  Our desire is to make Jesus known everywhere: locally, nationally, and internationally. Jesus’ command is clear. He said to His disciples, “…you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8) This is Plan A.  There is no Plan B.  This has to be our priority.
