Loving Jesus, Serving People, Transforming Lives
The Pleasant Hill Baptist Church focus statement keeps our members focused upon what we are to be doing. This statement has three parts
The first part is LOVING JESUS. This love begins by receiving God's gift of forgiveness through accepting Jesus as Savior and Lord. We respond by loving God with every fiber of our being.
The Second part of the statement is SERVING PEOPLE. The result of Christians LOVING JESUS will be the development of a desire to love our neighbor as our self. We SERVE PEOPLE by following Jesus' example of seeking to serve rather than being served.
The third part is the goal of the statement. This goal is found in the last phrase TRANSFORMING LIVES. Lives are transformed when the Holy Spirit does His work in the lives of those who are sharing and hearing the gospel.
