Home » Taking Church Outside the Building

How many people are expecting to God move in their lives because of what THEY have done or how good THEY are? Do you expect God to do something good today in your life? When you gather today with your Church family, do you expect God to something good. So many times, we caught up looking at people who have been used mightily by the Lord and think that we could never be used by God? That could never happen in our lives.  Remember the words that Paul writes to the Church in Corinth, from 1 Corinthians 1: 26-29

“For consider your calling, brothers: not many of you were wise according to worldly standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth. But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong; God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are, so that no human being might boast in the presence of God.”

Many people can become defeated thinking that to do something for the Lord requires some large behemoth organization. That’s not what God is looking for. God’s checklist is those that are foolish, weak, and despised. If the world has looked over you, that’s exactly the ones that Jesus chose. That’s who His disciples were. If you find yourself being criticized by religious pharisees, that’s a good thing.

During the Jesus Movement in the 1970’s, God was breaking outside the buildings, on the beachside. People who were hungry for the presence of Jesus Christ were worshipping the Lord, with the sound of the crashing shore in the behind them.  Many of them decided to follow Jesus’ command to become water baptized in the ocean surf. We are reminding you of these powerful moments to stir your faith to believe God, with expectancy, to do it again in our generation, in your city.
