Reaching those without Christ - Enriching those who know Him
...seeing the world with Jesus’ eyes.
We are called to have the compassion of our Lord as we meet,
work and live with the unchurched people of our world.
...sowing the seed.
No one can “by their own reason or strength believe in Jesus Christ our Lord nor
come to him, but the Holy Spirit calls us By the Gospel.” The seed of the Word must
be sown for someone to be brought into the great harvest of salvation. Evangelism
is our telling the message of the Savior to others.
...working in the harvest field.
The Lord of the harvest is at work in His grace to produce the great harvest of
salvation. We are called and privileged to proclaim the Gospel and administer the Sacraments, to be God’s voice, hands and love in the lives of people.
