Tomorrow's "Launch Day" Message

Tomorrow at our Riverfalls location we will review our church's mission statement: New Life Church exists to treasure God and, as a result, spread the news of his excellence, trust his promises and give our lives away for his purposes. We'll consider why this mission statement has led us to start a new church.

The Treasuring God idea comes from Matthew 13:44, "The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field." This verse is finds an echo in 1 Corinthians 15:19, "If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are to be pitied more than all men."

That's all I know right now. I'd better go work on it so there's more to say tomorrow.
