why do we do what we do?
C.S. Lewis wrote in Mere Christianity:
“It is easy to think that the Church has a lot of different objects – education, buildings, missions, holding services…[But] the Church exists for nothing else but to draw men into Christ, to make them into little Christs. If they are not doing that, all the cathedrals, clergy, missions, sermons, even the Bible itself, are simply a waste of time. God became man for no other purpose. It is even doubtful, you know, whether the whole universe was created for any other purpose. It says in the Bible that the whole universe was made for Christ and that everything is to be gathered together in Him.”
Elim Gospel Church exists to help one another experience Christ's transforming love so that we can love Him, ourselves, our families, our church, and our world. Period.
What a great privilege, what a great assignment, what a great message...what a GREAT GOD!
