One Family

dsc08078_ortonstyle_1_2

For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family[a] in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

—Ephesians 3:14-21

This week our church kicked off our annual Missions Conference where we welcome missionaries from all over the world.

For our church it’s a much anticipated event of the year with activities and opportunities to serves for all, but most of all it’s a chance for us to hear from those of our Christian brethren from all over the world and the testimonies they hold. Many live in dangerous areas or places of growing danger with groups like ISIS persecuting Christians for practicing their faith. Others who come aide these brethren of ours.

This year our theme is “One Family” as Paul highlights in the book Ephesians reminding Christians that they are of one family because of their faith. It should be an important reminder in a world that is constantly creating divisions and thrives from it.

But be it not so for those of us who are Christians and share the same faith rooted in the salvation offered through Jesus Christ; regardless of gender, or ethnic background.  Our petty arguments  should fall short in light of this.

If you would like to be a part of our One Family Missions Conference I invite you to check out hland.tv and visit our live video feed for more information plus live video of our services running from March 1st to the 3rd. You may also view past services listed as well.

Already we have had many friends join into watch around the world. Won’t you join us too as we learn what it means to be One Family in Christ.

In Mosul, ISIS militants marked with a spray-painted ن (the Arabic letter for “N”) all Christian property to be seized after the ultimatum. “N”, or ن , is the first letter of the Arabic word for Christian, “Nasrani” or Nazarene. #pray4thepersecuted
