OUR MINISTRY DECLARATION
It is with great joy and humble gratitude
that we introduce to you the MINISTRIES of the Greater Charity Baptist Church (Greater CBC). The various ministries described
on our Ministry Page evidences our commitment to Biblical education and Kingdom Building.
As we continue to be taught, ministry is expressions of the Gospel. The Gospel is manifestated in the GREAT COMMISSION that Jesus describes in Matthew 28:18-20 (KJV) which states: "... All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen." Therefore, the GOSPEL is fervent study including cause and effect of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus in relationship to the image and action of God's body through the method of teaching that is patterened after baptism [soaking in, saturation of, and by repetition]. Ministry expression [whether through manuscript, speech, music, and/or dance] will manifest the life of God within the believer. The purpose of the Gospel, as documented in II Timothy 1:10, is to abolish death [which is broken fellowship with God] and bring life [which is instrution causing one to live] and immortality to light [light here is interpreted as understanding].
Now in the book of Hebrews 9:16, God declares that He has placed His laws [laws define and govern life; laws are instruction] in the hearts of His people (refer to John 1:4, 8-9, 14a). In other words, God has sown His laws (His life in the Word, John 1:4, 8-9) in us but as in the example of the seed, the elements [which are the sun, atmosphere, and earth] must work together in order for the seed to be activated (that is to be birthed or born) and grow in us: believers. The Gospel represents the elements that causes individuals to both understand and live abundantly in the life that God has given through His Son.
It is the intent of these ministries to provide individuals with practical application of scripture that fosters learning and increases one’s desire to grow beyond the ‘milk’ of the Word into the ‘meat’ of the Word.
We want to hear from you! Send us a comment, card or letter and let us know how these ministries are blessing you. Please continue to pray and believe God on our behalf and remember; your support of the Greater CBC ministries ensures that the successes of the same are also credited to your heavenly account, “PRAISE GOD!” †
