Faith without works is dead!
Jesus was sent to live among us and the revolution he started was very different. His leadership ushered in a new mentality that focused on loving and serving those in need. It involved helping those who were poor, enslaved, marginalized, and spiritually lost. In Matthew 20:28, Jesus shares that he did not come to be served but to serve others. Jesus’ revolution changed everything. It not only shook up the religious people and the politicians of his day, it also demonstrated a clear path to changing the world for God. At Grace Community Church, we want you to be a part of making an eternal impact for him all over the world! Serving on mission is a great way for you to exercise your faith, grow closer to Jesus, and of course Change the World!
