ENGAGE IN MISSION

HELPING THE VULNERABLE, DISPLACED, AND UNREACHED

ENGAGE IN MISSION

All of us are called to take the Good News to the world, letting it influence our families, workplaces, schools, friendships and neighborhoods.  The Good News of Jesus changes our motivations and gives us a new perspective on what truly matters in life.  We are invited to give our time and our money, that we would invest in Kingdom initiatives that last, at the local level and beyond.  Hillcrest Church has established local and global partnerships focusing on affecting communities for the good of the people and the gospel of Jesus Christ.  ENGAGING IN MISSION through Jesus, will give you a love of people, seeing them the way God sees them.  It is not a final step on a journey to discipleship, but is CENTRAL to who we are as followers of Jesus!

Matthew 28:18-20

"Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

PRAYER EVANGELISM

Live a Lifestyle of Prayer Evangelism

Talking to God about your neighbours
before talking to your neighbours about God.

Start with Blessing
  • Pray for specific people in your sphere of influence to be blessed - that God would be working in their life, for peace in their home, etc.

  • Adopt them in prayer. Take spiritual ownership of the people you pray for, knowing that praying for peace and blessing, results in peace and blessing. It's like changing the "Spiritual Climate" around them through prayer.

Spend Time
  • Be present, don’t be absent. Find ways to intentionally connect with the people in your sphere of influence.

  • Jesus was a friend to sinners - so should we be. This provides an opportunity to show unconditional acceptance by welcoming our neighbors the way they are, instead of the way we want them to be. Find common ground.

Meet Felt Needs
  • Bless and be on call. When they share a felt need, offer prayer! And help!

  • Use your resources AND expect MIRACLES. Listen and obey. Obedience is success.

Share Jesus
  • When we meet people's needs through God's provision, God creates an avenue to show them that Jesus is indeed a friend of sinners, who does not condemn them but loves them unconditionally.

  • Tell them it is God who has met their need and introduce them to Jesus. Share the Good News of the Gospel.

Tithing & Generosity

Everything belongs to God. He created it. He owns it.

Understanding and coming to terms with this important Biblical truth moves us from the position of owner to the position of manager or steward.
Once we make this shift in our thinking, we are in a better place to begin to practice true generosity.

When we loosen the grip of ownership so that we can become more faithful stewards of all of life, we begin to glorify God in a new way.
