Visitation-A Call or Command
As my small home church (30 members)looked at how to increase neighborhood attendance, we looked at the Great Commission to get our starting point. Over the past few months a growth in individual spiritual growth has shown up in our local neighborhood attendance. We now have an active children's ministry, music ministry, and visitation program in place. This book tells how visitation can help you. More
Peter, the marketing fish monger who grow up to help lead a dynamic growth in Christianity, shows us all what is necessary to begin such a growth mission.Our churches do not actively visit neighborhoods and meet needs while showing love and concern. Come with me and see exactly what Peter teaches us about visitation and how this is a distinct command to all whether the call is accepted or not. Let's tqake a walk through Peter's instruction to the masses shortly after the resurrection and study the individual elements: Faith, Virtue, Knowledge, Temperance, Patience, Godliness, Brotherly Kindness, and Love. Let's then look at the new testament models for action: the Fruit of the Spirit, Missionary, and Jesus' charter to all believers.
