Serve others while being served.
The Purpose of the Church is to be the hands and feet of Jesus, to join with others who are “called out” in both the local and global realm to accomplish God’s purposes on the earth. While it is common today to define the success of the ministry of the people of God in terms of the number of those who are attending the church, the actual success of the ministry of those “called out” is best defined by whether they are actually “going out”. (Matthew 28:16-20) Followers of Christ are uniquely gifted to minister in their circle of influence, putting hands and feet to the ministry of Jesus today. God’s workmanship becomes evident in the lives of Christians as they step out of their comfort zone and begin to function as the minister that God created them to be. The unique gifts, passions, and abilities which are deposited in each believer are given to build up the church and encourage others. As you can see from the list on the right, there are numerous opportunities to minister with the family of Beaverdam Baptist Church.
