EFCCL Vision Frame: What Happens Now?
It’s one thing to see a vision on paper, it’s another to be seized by a vision and live it out as a disciplemakers and as the church. It needs to be the passion of our hearts to see God’s Church rise up together and live the mission, values, and strategy that He has given to us. What part of the vision excites your heart? We all need to live to be a part of the mission to see transformed lives impact their world through Christ. It is the body of Christ that brings life to the vision through dependence on God through prayer, listening, and following His leading.
Take time in the coming weeks to read over the Vision Frame and pray through it and seek God to show you how to be a part of it. We need every EFCCL attendee to be part of living out and fulfilling the vision God has given us. The vision will propel us and our church to be moving forward—not just being happy with the status quo. God is calling us to join Him in His Kingdom work everyday. It would be easy for us to just to say we will wait for another pastor before we try to live out what God has called us to do now. We all are called to step out of our comfort zones as disciplemakers and seek to influence the lives around us through Gospel-centered relationships for His glory and for the building up of the body of Christ.
How will you join the leaders and pastors in fulfilling the vision God has given us? It is our challenge together to seek to live and fulfill the vision God has given us! Don’t sit on the sidelines; join the team!!
