The Heart And Soul Of Rlcc

  1. 1. The Heart and Soul of RLCC What makes RLCC unique
  2. 2. Welcome There are many churches out there but RLCC is unique. Our church is unique in that we have a unique identity and unique way of doing things. This presentation was created to help people understand who we are and how and why we do what we do. We hope that as you read, you will be able to capture what RLCC is all about.
  3. 3. OUR MISSION RLCC exists to reconcile the world with God and with each other by building communities of faith for every people group in every strategic area by the power of the Holy Spirit for the glory of God (2 Cor 5:16-21; Rom 1:1-7).
  4. 4. OUR VISION The vision of RLCC is to become a community of communities where the presence, power and purpose of Christ are fulfilled in and through each one (Eph 2:14-21; Rev 7:9-10).
  5. 5. OUR VALUES  Relationships (Rev 2:1-7)  Endurance (Rev 2:8-11)  Accuracy in the word (Rev 2:12-17  Lifestyle integrity (Rev 2:18-29)  Indwelling Holy Spirit (Rev 3:1-6)  Faithfulness in ministry (Rev 3:7-13)  Enthusiasm (Rev 3:14-22)
  6. 6. OUR BELIEFS  Bible - It's the only word of God, holy, inspired and without errors in the original manuscripts (2 Tim 3:16-17).  Eternal Life - It's only by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, but faith in Him without works is dead (Eph 2:1-10).  Lordship of Christ - Jesus is the only way, the truth and the life, and He is truly man and truly God in one Person. Therefore, there is one God in three Persons – the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit (1 Tim 2:1-7).
  7. 7. OUR BELIEFS  Image of God in man - Distorted now by sin, but it remains, and is the reason why sinful man may seek or long for eternity (Rom 7:14-25).  End times – Jesus will come again to earth from heaven, but we don't know when (1 Thess 4:13-5:3).  Filling of the Holy Spirit – It’s the need of every genuine believer, and is always experiential in nature (Acts 10:44-46).
  8. 8. OUR BELIEFS • Sanctification – God’s calling for each one is not just for salvation, but also for sanctification, for their situation in life, and for service in the kingdom of God (Eph 4:17-6:20).
  9. 9. OUR BASIC STRATEGY  Preach the Gospel (Rom 1:14-17).  Lead seekers to genuine conversion (Rom 17:17-19).  Assimilate believers into the body of Christ (Acts 2:40-47).  Nurture believers into faithful disciples (Col 1:28-29).  Train servant leaders and deploy them (Acts 14:21-28).
  10. 10. OUR PHILOSOPHY OF MINISTRY  Change is good (Matt 9:16-17).  Order is important (1 Cor 14:33a).  Ministry is for everyone (1 Pet 4:10).  Maturity is an attitude (Phil 3:15-16).  Unity is essential (Eph 4:1-6).  Nurture is relational (2 Tim 3:10-15).  Improvement is a must (1 Tim 4:15-16).  Teaching is for life change (1 Tim 4:11-14).  Yes is better than no (2 Cor 1:18-22).
  11. 11. CHARACTERISTICS OF A REAL LIFE CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY  Saved people (Phil 2:1)  Single purpose (Phil 2:2)  Selfless pursuit (Phil 2:3)  Small group perspective (Phil 2:4)  Servant posture (Phil 2:5-11)  Steady progress (Phil 2:12-13)  Shining proclamation (Phil 2:14-16)
  12. 12. WHY PEOPLE NEED TO BE IN COMMUNITY  We are created for it (Gen 1:27-28; 2:18)  We are attracted to it (Acts 2:42-47).  We are affected by it (1 Cor 15:33).  We are commanded to pursue and maintain it (Eph 4:1-6).  We are perfected (i.e. we grow toward maturity) through it (Eph 3:14-21).
  13. 13. HOW A PERSON BECOMES PART OF A COMMUNITY  Must be a saved person (Acts 2:36-41).  Must apply for PDA (Matt 28:16-20).  Must be willing to fulfill chosen commitment for at least five and a half months or until the LIFE Group ends its term.

COMMITMENTS OF A PARTICIPATING MEMBER  Accept without reservation the heart and soul of RLCC (Rom 16:17-19).  Try your best to participate and help in the life and ministry of RLCC according to your life situation (Acts 4:32-37).  Tell your friends and loved ones about RLCC (Col 4:5-6).  Encourage them to visit RLCC especially during Celebration Events (Heb 10:19-23).  Notify the leaders of RLCC if you need any kind of help (James 5:13-16).  Discipline yourself toward living a life of godliness and holiness so as not to dishonor the Lord and the reputation of RLCC (1 Thess 4:1-12).
