East Naples Baptist Church Vision 2018
Pray For Your Church
I pray that Christ Jesus and the church will forever bring praise to God. His power at work in us can do far more than we dare ask or imagine. Ephesians 3:20 (CEV)
On May 16, 2018, East Naples Baptist Church agreed in business meeting to seek out God’s will for our future with more direction, purpose and passion. With that affirmative vote, a number of actions were agreed to, including:
• evaluating our current ministries to determine what changes, if any should take place to secure a healthy future
• to seek for God’s will in regards to what a healthy future might look like for the church
• to place before the church steps of action to move toward a better future
• to partner with Auxano, a vision building ministry that assists churches in discerning God’s will
• to assign fellow church members the task of bringing back to the church a plan of action For this process to be guided and blessed by God, we all must pray. If anything, the recent gift to the church has spurred us on to be better stewards of all God has given us, and to seek to find His will in leveraging all our gifts so that a hopeful and healthy future will be in front of us. The next nine months to a year will be important days for East Naples Baptist Church. But what happens behind the public presentations will be the one action that is of utmost importance; your prayers for God to lead us to the healthy future He has for us.
Vision Team Members
For it was the Holy Spirit’s decision—and ours— to put no greater burden on you than these necessary things
God works through people to show us His will. Pray for your fellow church members as they work together so that God’s
will is revealed to the church.
