THE PURPOSE OF GRABILL STUDENT MINISTRY IS "TO MAKE PASSIONATE DISCIPLES OF JESUS CHRIST WHO ARE BECOMING, CONNECTING, AND KINGDOM WORKING."
BECOMING | MATTHEW 4:19
Becoming is a matter of commitment. We first commit our lives to Christ by declaring our faith in Him for salvation (Conversion experience). We commit to Him through baptism as an outward display of our desire to obey Him alone (Baptism). We commit our time to meet together to worship, to receive instruction in the Word (Wednesday Service), and for accountability (Break Out Groups). We commit to follow the leadership He has entrusted with the task of guiding this local body of believers over the long haul (Grabill Missionary Church).
CONNECTING | ACTS 2:42
We connect with God daily through Personal and Communal Bible Study, Prayer, Worship, and Stewardship of our resources for His work. We find great joy in serving and connecting with others. Many people have needs, both in our community and around the world, that are seeking to be met by Christ followers who are willing to sacrifice time, energy, and skill.
KINGDOM WORKING | MATTHEW 28:19-20
Jesus clearly calls us to reach everyone with the good news of salvation. Daily we have the opportunity to continue sharing our faith with friends and neighbors. We strive to grow in grace as God's Spirit works in our lives to conform us to Christ's image. Discipline teaches us the joy of elevating God's Kingdom and not our own.
