Inspiration for Today's Church from the Desk of Tim Barker
Salvation is receiving your adoption papers.
Now, it’s time to become a part of the family of God. And it is a family, a community of believers with a common goal.
God wants you as part of His UNIFIED CHURCH. The church needs your participation.
The world cries out for your leadership as a Christ-driven example of how to find security and safety in Him.
We must band together arm-in-arm, hand-in-hand, our thoughts, compassion, and commitment to each other linked for a common goal we all share: spreading the message of salvation to a world that desperately needs to see the example of Jesus lived out through committed believers.
This book will become a useful tool to focus your witness to those around you and strengthen your relationship to your family, your involvement in your local body of believers and your commitment to Christ.
A Message from the Desk of Tim Barker:
As the District Superintendent for the South Texas District of the Assemblies of God, I know the value of a unified church.
In the Word, the Master tells us that we are to function as ONE in Him. We can’t use skin color, economic status, or occupation to exclude anyone. We each participate on a level playing field in Christ.
Join me in building the church. Your unity with fellow believers in God can begin now. You will become a living example to others to accept salvation and invite Him in.
