Love God / Love People
The first part of our mission here at The House is to LOVE GOD.
The scripture says to Love God with all of your Heart, Mind, Soul and Strength, in other words with all of your being and with everything you say and do. Here at The House we desire to be a people that not only say "We Love God" but demonstrate it by living for Him each and every day according to His word (The Bible). This living comes easy once we have allowed the Love of God to become real in our own lives and change us from the inside out.
This is where WE must start as a church, as a body of believers and as individuals.
Loving God and living for HIM each and every day, not out of fear but because we LOVE GOD!
The second part of our mission here at The House is to LOVE PEOPLE.
The word of God says to love your neighbor as yourself. This Love is NOT just any Love, but Godly Love. The only Love that can be demonstrated once we have experienced God's Love for us. A Love that bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things, A Love that NEVER FAILS!
It is our responsibility and mission as believers to LOVE PEOPLE, not specific people, but all people, HIS PEOPLE, with a kind of Love that allows them to see HIS purpose and HIS plan for their lives, and gives them the opportunity to receive everything He has for them.
