Mt Wellington Community Church; "We are a caring, dynamic, multicultural family, sharing God's love with our community". One of the things that I enjoy about MWCC, in fact, inspires me about MWCC, is our desire to live this out. Over the last 5 or so years we haven't really talked too much about this, but it is on our newsletter pretty much every week. It is our motivation every day to share God's love with our community in many different ways. There are many different ministries, events that we run, support services that we offer, love that we are able to give to those around us. People are always watching. They want to know if we are authentic. They want to know if we are around for the long haul and can be relied on. This is not an individual mission. It is something that we do as MWCC (& MCCT). "We are a caring..." Let us continue to do what God has collectively laid on our hearts.
John 13:35 "By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." As we interact with each other, as we welcome people into our faith community, people will know that we are disciples of God. As people see our genuine love for one another and for the God that we serve, we can introduce them to the life changing God of ours.
What does Jesus say to his disciples? Matt 28:19,20 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you." Let's do this! In this way we will be contributing to our Lord building His kingdom here on earth. So let us remember; "We are a caring, dynamic, multicultural family, sharing God's love with our community".
