Ministries & Mission

"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another."  John 13:34-35

We are going to make a distintion between ministry and mission - both essential to the kingdom god

What is a ministry?

Minstries are teams, committees, or activities inside the church - it is our call inward and to serve the community we belong to  

What is a mission?
