We are in a race for the souls of people
There’s a man on the cusp of leaving his wife and family because he has given up. There’s a family experiencing the loss of their father. There are people living in generational poverty, stuck in a cycle of despair and dependency. There’s a woman living in desperate isolation, hiding behind the mask of a career and the American Dream. This is our race as a church, to lead people to realize and reach their full potential in Jesus Christ.
“Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.”
1 Corinthians 9:24
We must keep running to make a difference in a world that is lost and broken. We continue to push forward because we believe that everyone spends forever somewhere. That is why we run, to share the good news about Jesus Christ with the world.
What is the I’M IN Campaign?
“You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
The very last thing Jesus did on earth was to give His followers a mission:
“You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Acts 1:8
In other words, “Tell your friends about me. Then do the same thing for everybody in your city, then your whole country. And after all that? Keep going.” We feel God calling us to the exact same mission, sharing His amazing, life-changing news with everyone who will listen.
I’M IN is a two-year giving campaign for the NewPointe team. It is a bold, risky mission to reach as many people as possible for Jesus Christ. To broadcast a clear voice of truth through a barrage of lies. To bring spiritual and physical freedom to the oppressed. To run after our friends and neighbors, introducing them to a God who loves and pursues them. No matter where He calls us, we’re in.
Are you IN?
The opportunities before us have never been greater, and I have never been more excited about our future. NOW IS THE TIME TO RUN BY FAITH! Will you join us on this corageous journey? You haven't really trusted God until you've attempted to do something you can't do on your own strength. I dare you to let God know how much more he can do in your life when you trust him!
