BE A 5 CHRISTIAN
A great church is made up of strong Christians and strong Christian families
READ GOD'S WORD
In Romans 10:17, the Bible says, "Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the
Word of God." Reading the Bible is vital to the Christian life. As
we read the Bible, we should search the Scriptures, comparing Scripture with
Scripture. Set a goal to memorize Scripture and meditate on the Word of
God. In our personal lives and with our families, we need to be reading the
Word of God each and every day.
We believe that God hears and answers prayer. There is no doubt about it,
the greatest untapped resource in the Christian life is the matter of prayer. Pray
each day. Pray for loved ones. Pray for church leaders and their
families. Pray for your church. Pray for our nation. Pray for
the lost. Establish a prayer list and PRAY.
ATTEND CHURCH FAITHFULLY
The Lord Jesus Christ deserves your faithfulness. Attend every service of
the church. A great deal of the strength of the church is based on the
faithfulness of the people. Support special meetings at the church with
your faithful attendance.
WITNESS TO THE LOST
Our Lord Jesus Christ came to seek and to save that which was lost. He
left us on earth to tell others about Him. Determine to bring others to the
Saviour. Work to bring other families to Christ and to the church. Set
a time to go. Make a list of names and addresses of people you want to
reach for Christ.
God's work is to be supported God's way. The Bible teaches that we should
pay the tithe and give our offerings, so practice tithing as a conviction. Bring
the Lord's tithe with you to church each Sunday, support the ministries of the
church with offerings, and by faith, give to worldwide missions. Support
the Christian education endeavors of the church. We cannot outgive God!
Determine to be a Five-Star Christian. This is a time when you
can be a real help and encouragement to your pastor and church. May
God help you to work together to see something beyond the ordinary
accomplished for Christ through your church.
