"Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it." Habbakuk 2:2
As you can see from above, our Vision at Bible Faith Church is to proclaim by our words and actions the good news of God, in order that those we meet wilfully accept Jesus Christ as Saviour and prosper, spirit, soul, body, socially and financially.
In order to focus on our God-given task, there are basic steps that are to be identified. Once these fundamental steps are understood then the only remaining factor is to systemically act on those steps.
In order to cause the mandate of a “growing church with You in mind” to manifest, practical steps are necessary in order to succeed.
After much prayer and biblical consideration The following God inspired plan was made clear to me, for Bible Faith Family of Churches.
OUR MISSION: G.A.I.N.
The plan is best remembered by the word GAIN. Each letter forms an important element of the four-phase message of gaining for the Kingdom of God.
The first letter “G” of the word GAIN outlines the fundamental characteristic of the Christian life, GIVING. In a very practical way the bible teaches that the Christian must give of their TIME, EFFORT and FINANCES. In essence, this principle is the key characteristic that identified JESUS CHRIST.
The bible outlines the following verses with regards to giving: “Give and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.” Luke 6:38
"When He ascended on high, He led captivity captive, and gave gifts to men." Ephesians 4:8
"Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap." Galatians 6:7
We are asked to give what we have, not what we do not have. We need to be committed to giving as a way of life and not as an occasional benevolent act. By establishing a consistent, methodical, and increasingly giving attitude with our time to church ministries and faithfulness in tithes and offerings for further expansion of the gospel message, we are setting in place the first important step.
