What is the Reach the Lost pillar?
It is the Pillar that focuses on sharing the Gospel of Jesus with those who have not professed a faith in Jesus. Jesus commissioned us to go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We Glorify God in this pillar by:
Developing an understanding of Biblical instruction on reaching the lost.
Engaging in deliberately planned and spontaneous opportunities for reaching the lost.
Actively participating in reaching the lost in every aspect of our Every-Day Ordinary Lives.
Understand what the Bible teaches about reaching the lost for Christ.
