The Measure of the Church: Faith, Hope, and Love
See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy,
which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces
of this world rather than on Christ.
(1 Thessalonians 1:2-4)
And so you became a model to all the believers in Macedonia and Achaia.
1 Thessalonians 1:7
• Work of Faith
• Labor of Love
• Endurance of Hope
Living on Mission:
The church of Jesus Christ, empowered by the Holy Spirit,
is consistently thankful for all that God has done and will do.
