"Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations,b baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” • Matthew 28:18-20 (NLT)
Rediscovering Authentic Christianity
Imagine that you lived in a place where there had never been a Christian Church and no one had ever seen or talked to a Christian or read a Bible.
Then, imagine while in that place you somehow find a Bible and begin to learn about the God of the Bible. As you read you begin to believe in Him and His message of Forgiveness and Salvation and you begin to have a relationship with Him in prayer.
Imagine your excitement in discovering that God cares for you, and He hears and answers your prayers!
You begin to share this good news with others and read the Bible with them. Imagine many of your friends, your relatives, and their friends and relatives begin to believe, obey, and call upon the same God and His Son, Jesus. How would these new believers, these new 'children of God', be nurtured and grow into mature 'sons of God'? Now, what do you think? What do you do? Would this be an individual pursuit for new believers or would they grow as individual AND as a community of believers?
Because your relationship with God began with the Bible you know you must look there for the answers to these questions. As you look into the Bible, into the Gospels and into the book of the Acts of the Apostles you make a great discovery. ALL the answers to your questions are there!
As you continue to discover God's purpose, pattern, and plan for followers of Jesus as individuals (in the Bible called "disciples") and as a community of disciples (called a 'church') you find that you are on an exciting journey - discovering Authentic Christianity!
At Voyage Church we believe that Authentic Christianity is the answer for every human being and it is the answer for all of mankind's problems. Some people feel that Church or Christianity has been tried and failed. But, we propose that, perhaps, authentic church and authentic discipleship has not really been tried by the traditional church.
We don't judge or criticize, we are not perfect, we do not have all the answers, but God has shown us a few things and we are on the Voyage of Discovering Jesus and His Kingdom! You are invited to join us.
