The vision of West Chester Church of the Nazarene is to be a people who are Passing Our Passion to Every Generation. The danger we face as a church is…what if we don’t have passion? The understood subject of this vision statement is that JESUS is our passion…that we are passionate about JESUS!!! Do you remember ‘falling in love?’ Are you still ‘falling in love…with your spouse, friends…how about Jesus?
From Easter until Pentecost Sunday (May 24th) we will be asking the question - talking about – praying about – challenging people…to be Falling in Love with Jesus. The apostle Paul states in Philippians 3:10, “I want to know Christ and the power of His resurrection!” Earlier he says, “I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.”
We will begin on April 12th with the challenge to make a decision, checking our desire and discovering the discipline required to be Falling in Love with Jesus. We will ask, was He really a man? Is He really God? A look at the disciples will help us relate to them and find what God wants from us. We will try to understand the depth of His death and the power of His resurrection. Finally, we will celebrate the coming of the Holy Spirit.
For new believers and those who have accepted Christ years ago, this will be a great time to renew our knowledge and find out if we are Falling in Love with Jesus.
