Senior Pastor Marty Grubbs kicked off our new series Building a Life That Matters. Teaching from a passage of Scripture that has guided his vision for Crossings, Acts 2:42-47, Marty focused on the importance of the Church in the believer’s life. A life that matters is built connected to the One who made us and to a community with other followers of Jesus. Gathering as they did in the early church includes devotion, influence, and life change.
Devotion: A sacred awe-reverent attitude. They devoted themselves to the apostles teaching...” Acts 2:42
Influence Enjoying the goodwill of all the people...Acts 2:47
Life Change And each day the Lord added to their fellowship those who were being saved. Acts 2:47
The Benefits of Gathering... • Jesus is the focus • Everyone is welcome • Participation is encouraged • Teaching is biblical • Worship is inspiring • Everyone has a role • We get to participate in God’s plan for the planet
"All the preliminaries have been taken care of, and the Kingdom of God is now accessible to everyone. Review your plans for living and base your life on the remarkable opportunity." Dallas Willard
