WORKING FOR GOD EFFECTIVELY (John 6:27) __________________________________

Annual Themes 2008 - 2009 Working for God With Enthusiasm (I Corinthians 3:9) 2009 - 2010 Working for God With Earnestness (Matthew 9:37) 2010 - 2011

Working for God With Expectation (John 6:29) 2011 - 2012 Working for God With Endurance (Galatians 6:9) 2012 - 2013 Working for God With Enjoyment (I Peter 4:13)

Mission Statement of Original Free Will Baptists (Of the English General Baptist Heritage) The mission of the people of God called Original Free Will Baptists is to glorify God, therefore, we strive to know Christ, build His Church and make Him known to all people as we continue to seek His will. We believe this mission can be fulfilled through... WORSHIPPING John 4:23 “...worship the Father in spirit and in truth:...” We commit ourselves to glorifying God by Worship, which is in the adoration of God. Worship is duly required of all His children through praise, prayer, the reading and preaching of His Word, and should inspire witness leading to discipleship. Every Christian may worship God privately; however, this should never replace the corporate worship of the church. (1) GROWING 2 Peter 3:18 “But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ...” We commit ourselves to glorifying God by moving toward maturity through learning, fellowshipping, and doing the work of ministry. CARING Galatians 6:10 “As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.” We commit ourselves to glorifying God by making Christ knows to the world, by caring for those of the flock of God, and by demonstrating the love of God to all peoples. SHARING Matthew 10:8b (7-10) “...freely ye have received, freely give.” We commit ourselves to glorifying God by sharing what we know, what we have, and what we are, with all peoples. EQUIPPING Ephesians 4:12a “For the perfecting (equipping) of the saints for the work of ministry...” We commit ourselves to glorifying God by equipping all believers for the work of ministry. The Church, through its leadership, is to see to it that the people of God are educated, guided, and cared for that they might become spiritually mature as they do the work of ministry. (1) Articles of Faith, page 52 (This Mission Statement is the work of Project Solution’s Task Force Committee. It was officially adopted by the Convention’s Executive Committee on April 11, 1995, and will be a part of the Committee’s report.)
