EMPOWERING
John 14:6 (ESV)
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Empowered  to Witness

Witnessing should be in the very nature of the Christian, that is what God has called all of us to do. Sharing what God has done in your life and in the lives of others should be a thing of great joy. Witnessing also means listening. Jesus is a good listener and so should we, it means that we truly care about someone and are truly interested in them...that is the Empowered Witness. 
Matthew 28:16–20 (ESV)
16 Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. 17 And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some doubted. 18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Empowered to Worship  

Worship is not something you do, nor is it a place you go. Worship is who you are in Christ, you were created to worship  Him.  The empowered worshipper lives a life of worship, freely, and without fear. We want to help others discover worship as God intended it to be. 
John 4:23 (ESV)
23 But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him.

Empowered Families

Stresses on families are at an all time high, Fear, Doubts, Confusion, Fruitlessness and Aimlessness – these things aren’t inevitable. They’re the result of not living according to important biblical truths and letting them guide our steps.  Our goal at Calvary Community Church is to guide families to live out their lives empowered by the Holy Spirit.  The empowered  family is a praying family, one that encourages each other and applies practical biblical truths to their lives each day. 


Empowered to Serve

Jesus came to serve, not to be served, (Mark 10:45)Our church is heavily focused on serving others. We encourage every member to get involved in serving. Whether it be serving children and staff in our local schools, to feeding hungry children in Kentucky, we want all involved, why? because that is what God has called us to do. 
Galatians 5:13 (ESV)
13 For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.

Empowered to Give 

God commands us to give to the cause of the Kingdom in the Bible. It is not an optional gesture He leaves to our discretion. Jesus actually talked about money more than almost any other subject. He did not do so because He was infatuated with getting rich. In reality, He died naked and poor by worldly standards. He addressed the subject of money and wealth because he knew the way people earn, spend, save, invest, and give their money is the clearest indicator of their true priorities and passions. It is why he said, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:21, ESV). Also, the ministry and missions of the church cost money. The gospel is free but getting the gospel into people’s lives happens by using buildings, pastoral staff, curriculum, events, parking lots, utilities, etc. Your giving matters to God and to us, greatly!
