What is the breastplate of righteousness and how does it prepare us for battle?
Understanding our lives as an adventure and the expectation that God wants all of us
Understanding the role of prayer in experiencing the presence of God
Understanding the inherit goodness of God as a blessing in the midst of adversity
Our understanding of the relationship between our service and a lifestyle of worship.
The Connection between submission, obedience, and worship
Using Abraham’s example when he hosted Angels, we develop a model for a worship lifestyle: Submission, Service, Sacrifice
Our relationship with Christ can overcome our deepest doubts
Our relationship requires not only declaration but denial for growth
The initiation of our relationship with Jesus begins with Jesus' revelation.
It all boils down to love. Love from a savior. Love to a neighbor in need. By spending just a little less on gifts we free up our resources to love as Jesus loves by giving to those who really need help.
We know what you're thinking. "Wait, didn't they just say I should spend less, and yet here they are telling me to give more? What gives?" The most powerful, memorable gift you can give to someone else is yourself. And nobody modeled this more than Jesus. So what does this look like for you?
Christmas marks the moment where God's promise was fulfilled and love took form, tiny fingers and all. It is a moment that deserves our full attention and praise. We put Worship Fully as AC's first tenet because we believe the level of our involvement at Christmas is based entirely on how much we are celebrating Christ's birth. He deserves celebration; one that is creative, loud and directs every heart His way.
