VISION OF WORD OF LIFE

The Direction and Mission of
WOL CHURCH MALAYSIA

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.

MISSION OF WORD OF LIFE

The Vision Grows us
The Mission Guides us

EMPOWERING PEOPLE TO RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD .

The mission of Word of Life is simple. For everyone to walk with God. In that relationship with God, He grows us from a worshipper to a disciple and eventually a follower of Christ.

The mission of Word of Life was derived from the story of Lydia and how she responded to Paul's teaching..by responding not to the servant but to whom Paul was serving,talking about..to God.

This is how we fulfill the Great Commission.

Taken from Acts 16:14-15

14 One of those listening was a woman from the city of Thyatira named Lydia, a dealer in purple cloth. She was a worshiper of God. The Lord opened her heart to respond to Paul’s message. 15 When she and the members of her household were baptized, she invited us to her home. “If you consider me a believer in the Lord,” she said, “come and stay at my house.” And she persuaded us.


Lydia is what everyone in Word of Life is with God from the start.

#1 She was a worshiper - someone who feared and honored God. 
Word of Life as the Church - must be a place where Jesus is the centre of Worship, and all that we do. So people coming can worship and receive from Him. The atmosphere of worship gives God the opportunity to bless people. Miracles takes place in worship. 


As a believer- Get your worship of God right, your life will be put in the right place. You set yourself-up for goodness coming after you. There's a price to pay, but the gains out measure what you choose to let go for Jesus. 

#2. Lydia's heart was opened by God to Paul's message.- She became a Disciple of Christ.
Word of Life as the Church - must be the place where God's Word is preached, and live by. Those that preach the word, must live by the Word. Why? if the practitioners do not know how to overcome by His word, how can we testify and true witnesses of His power. His word must be our position. Even before we do anything, we must wait on Him for His word. Only then can people see, and know His word and the benefits of faith.


As a believer - Fruitfulness is guaranteed. How long fruitfulness last and how much is determined by how well you receive GOd's Word (Mt 13-Parable of Sower). A disciple grows obedient to the master's teachings and does what the master says because compared to a life without Jesus the living word, we know where we end up. 

#3. Lydia Welcome His servants into her life -She yielded her life to God for His use. She became a Follower of Christ
At Word of Life as the Church- We give it all back to Him. and Say Lord use us all.

As a believer-Just like the boy with 2 fishes and 5 loaves. He did not complain about being the only one God is using. He just obeyed and said..Lord take it all back and use it. Give it all back to GOd for His glory.

Everyone A Worshipper, A Disciple and A Follower of Jesus Christ

that's our mission.
