The Direction and Mission of
WOL CHURCH MALAYSIA
OUR VISION : Walk with God.
OUR VISION : Walk with God.
People often ask me, what is the vision of Word of Life? That is simple to answer...what is the purpose of God's Church?
The answer is found by understanding the purpose of being born again and God's kingdom. God created human beings to be His hands and feet to care for all of creation. Is that the purpose? No. that's the fruit of our relationship with Him. The purpose of Word of Life is no different from any other Church of God.
As Jacob declared "this is the house of God and the gates to heaven" This is where God and His people dwell as ONE. You see being a Christian is not a solo-race to the end. The moment you are born again, you will be brought into a family. GOd's community for every believer. That's the church. To do what ? well to be loved by Him and to love Him in return as one body...that's what's worship is for..that's what prayer is for. That's what we were created to be..people that are loved by the most amazing awesomest God ever !
#1 So the first purpose of everyone in Word of Life - To Connect with God and to get to know Him-- we call this being loved by God.
To be loved by God, helps us to fall in love with Him naturally.
- LOVE GOD
So prayer,worship, hearing His word..just coming to church to "do nothing or some people call it to REST" with Jesus is the most important thing anyone can ever do for themselves.
Only when we are connected to Him as one Church, can He begin to birth fruits of this eternal relationship. Those fruits should be fruits of blessings to the immediate and to others around us and beyond. That's how the world gets to taste of Him and starts to know Him.
#2 So the second purpose everyone flowing with God connected to God will find connecting with others at Word of Life becomes natural and a simpler process. Do you see how God and His grace brings us through. I have not even talked about discipleship, or bible studies etc...because nothing man can do will ever help you forward...We ALL need to grow fully dependant on God and His word alone.
Only than the #2nd part of Word of Life-Loving People makes sense. Why ? Because God loves people more than we can ever think or imagine. A sense of compassion will grow in you for others that you never had before. A sense of not just feeling the need to care but to do something about it. This is where we begin to share GOd's love with others..and the respect gained...will help us to have the opportunity to share His salvation with others.
and now on to the final part #3-Loving Life. You see a life dependant on grace and dwelling in His love, frees everyone from unnecessary bondages and fears. A new vigor to live again...to be free. No longer bounded by cumbersome customs, traditions and people...to start to find yourself..who you are and be just that ...who you are...not what others want you to be. The coolest person is not one who has most...but one who has found himself/herself and love being just that. ..You see in Christ, we can do anything..because He strengthens us.
So you see that's how we derived the Vision for Word of Life...which is what the Cross is all about..Jesus died for us to be born again into His kingdom. Where we are connected to God and in connecting with Him we learn to relate to all of creation His way..expecting nothing from others but to love..and expecting everything from God alone.
Because we know His Love, only than can we
LOVE GOD, LOVE PEOPLE, LOVE LIFE.
(Mt 22:37-40 and Mt 28;16-20)
SO how do we start? we start walking with God every single day of our lives and no looking back anymore.
