 Hey SI Brethren I need serious help

Hey I am going to take a risk with the fine brethren on SI, desiring your wisdom and love for God for some insight on making an excellent "welcome section" giving everybody some information of what the church is about for them also.

Here is a rough draft that I just wrote in a few minutes and decided on getting some input from more experienced writers and communicators that I know are on SI.

The section is not suppose to be that long but I want it to be informative as well as interesting to read.


Here goes -it is a very rough draft and the grammar is terrible so please be kind and offer some good advice.



Welcome to our Church (section)

Thank you for visiting our site. It is our desire that you experience the one true God, His Love, and His purpose for your life. We would love to have you join us in our weekly services. We believe without compromise that Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the Life. We believe that the only way mankind can experience the true God and have eternal life is by the Lord Jesus Christ. We want everybody to know how much God loves them by giving His only begotten Son as the supreme sacrifice, of being crucified for them and their sins. We want everybody to receive salvation, their sins forgiven and everlasting peace with God because of the blood Jesus shed on the cross for us. We believe that the blood of Jesus cleanses us from all sin as we place our faith and trust in Him. We believe in the cross where Jesus died not only for our sins but also in our place to free us from having to live under the dominion of sin. We believe where sin abounds grace does more abound. We believe in the grace of God through the finished work of Christ can enable us to live victoriously. We believe Jesus has come and died on the cross and has risen from the dead to set us free to have life and to have it more abundantly. We pray that we can be of help to you, so that you will receive all that God desires for you to live a victorious, successful and God honoring life. We hope that if and when you can’t be a part of one of our weekly services that this site will be a blessing to you and your family.

Blessings in Christ always,
Pastor

 Re: Hey SI Brethren need serious help

I think it sounds pretty good the way it is bro... altho, the title might get a little confusing: "Welcome to our Church".

Greg has stated on here numerous times that this website and forum is not a church.

Other than tho, sounds good.

Thanks for the reply Krispy!

My wife (I'm so blessed)help me proof read it and so here is a more revised version. I thought I would put "Assembly" this time so maybe there won't be a problem.

 Re:

Hi Krispy

I understand what Greg means that this website is not a church but do you not feel a sense of unity of believers from different denominations fellow-shipping together in this forum.Despite different doctrinal views most on SI glorify Jesus and after all his church is made up of a body of believers of different races and nations etc.

Although we do not meet physically we often gather together on here and share testimonies, encouraging, rebuking,teaching and exhorting one another plus the thousands of sermons that have helped many of us grow in the Lord. Personally I think SI is a great blessing to the lives of hungry spirit filled believers this is where some of us are finding a true gospel message that is Christ centered rather than man centered so perhaps I find it hard not to see SIer's as being part of the bride of Jesus his church.:)

 Re:

Hi everyone!

It just dawn on me that some might be misunderstanding, I am not talking about a welcome section for SI, oh no, that is definitely not my place to even consider it. Greg and the moderators are doing excellent with SI website.

I am working on one for the church I pastor and I have no agenda, only interested in what you brethren think would be a good welcome section. There are no names involved.

God Bless everyone!

 Re: Hey SI Brethren I need serious help


It's good but a little wordy for someone who might be doing a quick once over looking for something in particular. Maybe you could remove the two "We wants and We hope." But that's just my opinion brother. I mean no harm.

For those who are looking for something particular, like help (healing), you might want to add "We believe in laying hands on the sick (in body and in mind), and praying for whosoever desires healing."

Also, the church I've recently started going to, I have figured out that they are "a felony-friendly church"!! LOLOL I love it!! Especially since I minister to the women at the jail!! (edit: and that is what I tell the girls at jail, 'come to my church, it's felony friendly and you won't feel out of place." I hope they come because the majority of those in jail never go to church, they are an unministered part of society). Feel free to add that too if you feel so inclined! (huge grin)

God bless you brother!
Lisa

That is because neither of you understand what the true definition of the church is; The true church is the body of CHRIST. It is NOT a building, it is NOT a place. IT IS A SPIRITUAL BODY OF BELIEVERS THAT TRANSCENDS TIME AND SPACE.
I'm so tired of American hangups about having a BUILDING made out of wood and stone in order to feel they have a religion. It is SO false. It is nothing but institionalized, dead, empty religion. What on earth are you gonna do when real persecution rises up in this country and you can no longer meet in your pretty little buildings?

May God bless you anyway Trekker. It is a good thing God can put up with ignorance because that is just pure ignorance. You don't know me and I don't know you but I hope the Lord continues to bless you inspite of your accusations.

I will pray for you that the Lord will heal you from whoever hurt you. I know my desire is not to hurt you or anyone else. If I can be a blessing to you then please let me know.


God Bless you...from brother rbanks
