Care

Fivefold Mission Icon SWe live as a tight-knit “village” community–sharing our time, money, and families. It’s not just about what we do, but using Christ-like character to do it.  We provide healing support for each other, and we believe in the serious necessity of having fun.

Ephesians 4:11

     And He Himself gave some to be apostles (leadership), some prophets (spirituality), some evangelists (mission), and some shepherds (care) and teachers (discipleship): for the complete equipping of the saints, for (specific jobs) for service, for the construction of the body of Christ.   

 

PROPHETIC CONFIRMATION – CARE

shep1As you look closer at our values, you will find an amazing prophetic confirmation.  God spoke to us five scriptures, all with the reference 34:10, highlighting the significance of each value.

          Care/Shepherding -  Ezekiel 34:10

     This is what the Almighty I AM says: I am against the shepherds. I will demand that they hand over my sheep. I won’t let them take care of my sheep anymore, and they will no longer take care of only themselves. I will rescue my sheep from their mouths, and my sheep will no longer be their food.

In Ezekiel 34:10, the LORD reveals to us the importance of the shepherding/care value.  God will will stand against those who fail to take care of the sheep around them.
