“Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength” and “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
Putting our faith into action is at the very heart of our Christian calling. The New Testament instructs those who would be followers of Jesus to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, give shelter to the homeless, heal the sick, care for the widows, and nurture the children.
Through volunteers in mission, every person in the church has the opportunity to serve and to live their lives more faithfully. When we reach out and use what God has given us in the service of others, we have life-transforming experiences.
We are told that Jesus came in order that we might be able to tear down walls of hostility that divide and to build bridges of understanding. We are called, wherever we are in the world, to love all of God’s creation and to demonstrate that love with action.
