At Lima First Assembly of God, we firmly believe in the urgency of the Gospel at all times. Our faith and beliefs are rooted in the profound significance that the Gospel holds in our lives and within the community and society we serve.
The Significance of the Gospel
The Gospel, derived from the Greek word "euangelion," translates to "good news." It carries the message of God's love, grace, and redemption for humanity. The urgency lies in the fact that the Gospel has the power to transform lives, heal brokenness, and bring hope to the lost and broken-hearted.
As a church, we understand that the Gospel is not simply a historical account or a set of religious teachings. It is a living truth that shapes our identities, guides our actions, and inspires us to love others unconditionally.
Embracing the Gospel Within the Community and Society
Our commitment to proclaiming the Gospel is not confined within the walls of our church. We strive to actively engage with the community and society around us, recognizing that the urgent message of the Gospel transcends cultural and societal boundaries.
Through various outreach programs, we aim to extend the love of Christ and share the life-changing power of the Gospel with those in need. From providing food and shelter to the homeless, offering counseling and support to struggling individuals and families, to empowering the youth to embrace their God-given potential, our goal is to be a tangible expression of God's love in action.
The Role of Faith and Beliefs
Our faith and beliefs serve as the foundation upon which we understand and communicate the urgency of the Gospel. They guide us in seeking deeper spiritual connections with God and empower us to live out the principles taught in the Scriptures.
We believe that our relationship with God is not meant to be passive, but an active pursuit fueled by faith. As we cultivate our beliefs and grow in our understanding of the Gospel, we develop a sense of urgency to share this life-transforming truth with others.
The Impact of the Gospel
The urgency of the Gospel lies in its potential to impact lives in profound ways. Throughout history, we have witnessed countless stories of individuals who have experienced radical transformation through encountering the Gospel.
Couples on the verge of divorce have found healing and restoration through the power of forgiveness and reconciliation that the Gospel teaches. Addicts have been set free from the chains of bondage as they encounter the unconditional love and redemption found in Christ. The lonely and isolated have discovered a community of believers who offer genuine love and support, fostering a sense of belonging.
Furthermore, the Gospel not only transforms individual lives but also has the power to bring positive change to entire communities and societies. It inspires acts of justice, compassion, and unity. It challenges the status quo and encourages us to address social issues such as poverty, injustice, and inequality.
In conclusion, the urgency of the Gospel at all times drives us, the Lima First Assembly of God, to live out our faith with conviction, compassion, and purpose. We are committed to embracing the significance of the Gospel within our community and society, guided by our faith and beliefs.
We invite you to join us on this transformative journey and discover the life-changing power of the Gospel. Together, let us make a difference in the world by spreading the good news and exemplifying Christ's love in all that we do.
