Jesus is th Hero of our Missional Strategy.


“Jesus is our Hero”. Before we set out to build a strategy to bridge the gospel to one of the largest mission fields in America (Greater Boston), it is vital to recognize who it is that truly builds the Church. Jesus makes it very clear throughout scripture that it is he who builds his church. It is he who draws men unto himself. It is he who is responsible for his people’s justification, sanctification and glorification. This begs an answer to the question; “Who is this Jesus?” How a church answers this question directs all that they do. We believe that Jesus is God (John 1:1-2, Proverbs 8, Genesis 1, Colossians 1). As God, Jesus maintains and constantly demonstrates all the attributes of God such as: Holiness, Beauty, Power, Mercy, Sovereignty, Glory, Love, Forgiveness, Justice, and…the list is endless. Because of that, it is he who deserves all glory from his people.

The obvious temptation for all churches is to glorify themselves as the one who is building His Kingdom. I have sat in many church services where the name of Jesus was not mentioned once: no song proclaiming the goodness of Jesus was sung, no part of the sermon mentioned the life, death and resurrection of Jesus, and no statement of grace in the name of Jesus was given. It seemed that Jesus was absent from the church. In most of these instances, it is not that these churches don’t have a deep love for Jesus, because I believe they do. Instead, it seems that they have forgotten what church is entirely about; the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ as revealed in Scripture. Paul puts it this way in 1 Corinthians 15: 3-4 “For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures.”

It is not clever systems, strong preaching, style, money, creativity, or anything else other than Jesus Christ alone who builds His church. It is by His grace that ”We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us.” (2 Corinthians 5:20) We are thankful to Christ for drawing us and calling us to this mission of planting the gospel in the Greater Boston Area. To him be all praise and glory forever.

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I earn money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my web site to get additional info.
