Go, living out of love, make disciples.
The call of Christ on our lives changes the way we live. To love Christ, is to love others. We cannot separate the two. To call ourselves a community that is making disciples, we must be growing in our love for each other. Care is FAITH & LOVE in action. It moves beyond witnessing the joy and sorrow of another to participating in it: investing our lives in genuine concern and kindness acted out in a commitment to journey with one another.
