Have you been called to Serve?
To be a Christian, simply put, is to be a Jesus-follower—to do what Jesus did and to act like Jesus’ acted. However, we are only able to truly act like Jesus when our minds are being transformed into “the mind of Christ” through the ongoing, renewing work of the Holy Spirit (Romans 12:1-2; 1 Corinthians 2). We were created in God’s image to rule and reign in the earth as God’s ambassadors of wholeness, peace, joy, healing, righteousness, etc. (Genesis 1:26-28).
It is through service that God develops believers and provides a way for the body of Christ to use and mature their spiritual gifts. The unifying principle of God’s plan acts like “new energy” within the church. The apostle Paul wrote to the Church at Ephesus that the purpose of using spiritual gifts is, “to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ” (Ephesians 4: 12, 13).
What do we believe? The Windsor Village Church Family believed in the classical Christian doctrines of the Church of Jesus Christ. These beliefs are best summarized in the Apostle’s Creed, one of the oldest declarations of basic Christian faith.
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.Galatians 2:20
