On Sunday, September 23, 2018, I preached a message at Wildwood Community Church on the mission of the church.  This message was the second Sunday of our 5oth anniversary celebration.  Below are a set of questions related to the message for personal reflection or group discussion.

Sermon Questions:

  1. Pray
  2. What value have you seen in understanding the “mission statement” of an organization (any organization you have been a part of)?  What are the potential challenges with organizations that do not know their core mission?
  3. The Church is led by Jesus Christ.  What are some of the verses you can think of in the Bible that help us to understand the mission of the Church?
  4. 87 times in the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John), the word “Follow” is used in conjunction with people’s response to Jesus . . . 26 times as a command – Jesus saying “Follow Me.”  Why do you think this was the most common descriptor of the first Christians? 
  5. What would it look like for a church (and Christians) to be more concerned with God’s glory than their own? 
  6. 5 ways were mentioned today of how we can follow Jesus:  Following Him into His Word, Worship, Community, Ministry, and Mission.  Think of your own life for a moment in light of these 5 areas.  How has God used these 5 things to grow your faith in the past?  Is there any particular area where you would like to grow more this year?
  7. What is one particular application you took away from this message?
