Missional is not a place you arrive at but a direction in which you are moving.The role of the church is simply this: to bless the world. In doing this, the people of God reveal God's heart for the world.The true vitality of a congregation rests in the abundant lives of its participants and in the blessed lives of the community it serves.Our acts of service and love, not our oratorical brilliance and institutional success, will intrigue people with our message. Jesus followers live the truth; they don't just study it. Because of this, others are invited into truth and life.
