  • Witness
  • Discipleship
  • Fellowship
  • Service

 

Worship

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God – this is your true and proper worship.

(Romans 12 v1 - NIV)

So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God.

(Romans 12 - The Message)

 

Witness

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in [Gilmerton, and in all Edinburgh and Scotland], and to the ends of the earth

(Acts 1 v8)

 

Discipleship

All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals (including the Lord’s Supper), and to prayer

(Acts 2 v42)

 

Fellowship

So speak encouraging words to one another. Build up hope so you’ll all be together in this, no one left out, no one left behind. I know you’re already doing this; just keep on doing it.

(1 Thess 5)

 

Service

Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise – the fruit of lips that openly profess his name. And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.

(Heb 13:15-16)
