WHY DO WE, as believers at Barrhead Alliance Church, EXIST? What really is our PURPOSE?

A leadership author & speaker Simon Sinek shares how knowing the "WHY" is what inspires us when we believe in the organization's purpose. A.B. Simpson once wrote about the needs in having a LARGER VISION that takes the very message of heaven into our community fulfilling Christ's purposes in our life and in our work!

In Psalm 2:8 we see the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY telling King David to ASK of HIM and He will make the nations his inheritance, the ends of the earth his possession. With this in mind, the leadership at Barrhead Alliance Church, is ready to bring forward THE ASKING to God...

"Almighty God, we desire with all our hearts to make Christ known to this community so that those who don't know you now will be known by you in the future." In short: "To Make Christ Known to be Known in Christ."

TO MAKE CHRIST KNOWN (in short)
It's allowing God to use us, as Christ's ambassadors, in every way that beckons to the lost to come back and be reconciled to their first love, God Himself(2 Cor.5:19-20).

TO BE KNOWN IN CHRIST (in short)
We realize our true authentic self and the freedom in being truly human is ONLY FOUND in our identity in Christ (Eph. 4:22-26; Gal.2:20). It's having a fresh joyful abundant life, holy, set-apart, and pleasing to our Heavenly Father, all in which, gives glory to His Son, Jesus Christ.

May our great and gracious LORD GOD ALMIGHTY guide our ministry that uses this PURPOSE STATEMENT to strengthen our SPIRITUAL ONENESS and ENLARGE His territory for His Kingdom purposes!

Amen!
Pastor Trevor
