Life of Service | Discerning the Spiritual Health of the Church Episode 04

Host: Steve Macchia

We as the people of God, his dearly loved ones, are to be like salt and light in the world we are called to love and serve in Jesus’ name.” – Steve Macchia 

The mission of the Church is to be like salt and light in our needy world. The world is desperate for the seasoning of God and for a light to point them toward Jesus. A healthy church discerns together the unique ways they become outward in their focus via evangelism, social action, international missions, and caring for the poorest of the poor. In addition, a healthy church embraces the need for wise administration and accountability, finds joy amidst the diversity and unity of the body of Christ, and stewards with generosity all that’s entrusted to their care.
