First Baptist Church of McAlester exists to GATHER together in Jesus, to GROW as His disciples, and to GO forth sharing His gospel. This is the mission of our church. I want to encourage you to consider the impact this mission could have on your life. First, have you made Gathering together a priority for your life? God has granted us a rich privilege in that we can freely Gather with other believers. Many Christians around the world do not have this great opportunity. We should not take the Gathering of believers for granted. The Hebrews author encourages us, “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves, as the manner of some is…” (Hebrews 10:25). Second, are you Growing as a disciple of Jesus? Jesus beckons us, “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me” (Mark 8:34). When we gather together our main priority is to help one another become fully functioning disciples of Jesus Christ. Growing as a disciple of Jesus is the most important daily undertaking you could pursue. This development has significant impact concerning every other area of life. Let us Grow together, loving one another, caring for each other, and encouraging one another all the more as the day of the Lord draws near. Lastly, are you Going with the Gospel of Jesus Christ into your world? “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey all that I have commanded” (Matthew 28:19-20). God sends us out from our Gatherings and Growing to Go and take His Gospel to a world that desperately needs him. FBC McAlester exists to Gather together in Jesus, to Grow as His disciples, and to Go forth sharing His gospel. Work on memorizing this statement, then apply it to your life. God is at work at FBC McAlester!
