And millions of students espouse the philosophy that it doesnt really matter what you believe, its what you do that counts.[George Barna, Generation Next, p79] 11. here. 12. OUR STORY 13. Apostles CreedI believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth; And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord: who was conceived by the Holy Spirit born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, 14. was crucied, dead, and buried; He descended into hell, the third day he rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; From thence he shall come to judge the living and the dead. 15. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy universal church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.Amen 16. Worship-Centered 17. Everyone around was in awe - all those wonders and signs done through the apostles! And all the believers lived in wonderful harmony, holding everything in common. They sold whatever they owned and pooled their resources so that each persons need was met. 18. They followed a daily discipline of worship in the Temple followed by meals at home, every meal a celebration, exuberant and joyful, as they praised God. People in general liked what they say. Every day their number grew as God added those who were saved. Acts 2:42-47 [niv] 19. + Its all about the story 20. + Its more than a religionits a relationship 21. + Its a lifestyle 22. To worship is to ascribe worth to anyone or anything.I am giving worth-ship to God.I give worth to Him in ever aspect of life. 23. Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of Gods mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrices, holy and pleasing to God - this is your spiritual act of worship.Romans 12:1 [niv] 24. So heres what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life - your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life - and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Romans 12:1 [the message] 25. Denition: Living life in worship, day in and day out with consistency, we experience the absolute truth of a loving God; our spiritual hunger is lled not by a religion but by relationships with God and each other in Christ; and since were all looking for a place to call home - Gods left the light on for us - we belong. 26. nding north 27.

I know no other place under heaven, where I can have some [friends] always at hand, of the same judgment, and engaged in the same studies; persons who are awakened into a full conviction, that they have but one work to do upon earth; who see at a distance what that one work is, even the recovery of a single eye and a clean heart; who, in order to do this, have, according to their power, absolutely devoted themselves to God, and follow after God, denying themselves, and taking up their cross daily. 31. To have even a small number of such friends constantly watching over my soul, and administrating, as need is, reproof or advice with all plainness and gentleness, is a blessing I know nowhere to nd in any part of the kingdom.
