One of our readers came to the church and asked why the word “GROW” is in big bold letters on our stationary and advertisements?
I responded that the slogan of our church is Let’s GROW Together. I further explained that GROW is an acronym for Global Righteousness Outreach and Worship.
We are caked to minister to the Global community of the world which includes all nations and all people regardless of age, race, culture, creed, educational level, socio-economic status, family dynamic, orientation, background, etc.
We have been commissioned by Jesus to “seek first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness and all things will be added (Matthew 6:33).” Righteousness is being in right relationship with God as demonstrated by right thoughts, right perspective, right speech, right actions, right reactions and right feelings.
Outreach is our divine mandate to meet the spiritual, physical, emotional and mental needs of the neighborhoods where we live, learn, work and worship.
Worship is the fulfillment of the purpose for which we were created. Worship is more than singing and shouting; it is the development of our consciousness.
Worship is manifesting our oneness with God (John 10:30).
Let’s GROW Together!
