If I were a person who had never been to church, not been to church in a while or had become disillusioned with going to church I would want to know, "Why should I come to LifeSong Church?"
First let me tell you why you shouldn't come:
- Don't come if you got mad at your former church and left disgruntled
If you found something you didn't like there then you will find something you don't like here. If you were a trouble maker there then you will surely get your feelings hurt here. Our mission is to important than to put up with petty nonsense.
- Don't come if you think that we are going to tell you it is OK to live in sin
People are not our enemy, but sin is. The Bible says, "The wages of sin is death." Our goal is to help you have a relationship with Jesus Christ and live in that relationship with purpose and passion. Telling people that it is OK to have pet sins as long as they are not big one destroys our mission as a church to reconcile you to Christ.
- Don't come because you like the causal dress and cool music
The newness of all of that will wear off pretty quick and you will have to look for something else to keep you here. However, if you come for the right reasons, the vision and mission of the church will keep you here.
Here are some very good reasons to COME to LifeSong Church:
1. Help You Start A Relationship With Jesus Christ
Regardless of what kind of life you have lived up to this point Jesus is desperate to start a new relationship with you. We can help introduce you to Him. He is the best thing that has ever happened to any of us. Our church wouldn't exist if it weren't for Him and we are excited for you to meet Him!
2. Help Restore How You Feel About Church
The Bible describes the church as the "bride of Christ". A bride prepares herself for the groom. Every action and every thought focuses on that day when she gives herself totally and completely to Him. With that in mind, their is no place in the church for selfishness, personal agendas, politics, division, and worthless pursuits. Everything is done for the purpose of One, Jesus. Our passion is create an atmosphere of love, preparation, expectation and intimacy.
3. Introduce You To People You Can Share Life With
Everything in life is about relationships. The quality of our relationship with Jesus Christ determines the quality of all other relationships in life. We want you to share life with people who are passionate about their relationship with Jesus Christ. It is true that we become like the people we hang out with.
4. Empower You To Invest Your Life For A Greater Purpose
God has a calling and plan for your life. He created you to be unique. There is no one who has your personality, life story, sense of humor and giftedness. He wants all of us to use our lives to glorify Him. Our desire is to empower you to leave your mark on history by investing your life for the cause of Christ.
5. Make Loving God and Loving People The Greatest Priority In Your Life
This statement sums up the passion and heartbeat of the church and what God's Word tells us is the most important thing that we can do.
