Great Commission Women
Great Commission Women, an auxiliary ministry of the Fountain of Grace Church of The Christian and Missionary Alliance, exists to glorify God as devoted Christ followers of all generations, empowered by the Holy Spirit to live the Word, do the work, and reach the world.
The core values of Great Commission Women shall be an active commitment to:
1. Effective Fervent Prayer Prayer is a holy conference with our Omnipotent Father who welcomes the persistent communication of His children. "You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it so that the Son can bring glory to the Father."
2. Immersion in the Word To read God's Words, but further than that – memorize them, meditate on them, do Bible study on them, because we believe that they show us "what's right, what's wrong, how to get it right, and how to keep it right" so that we can do life well!
2 Timothy 3:16-17
3. Intentional Spiritual Formation The development of an intimate relationship with God in order to maintain and strengthen a flexible spirit of servant-hood and a pressing, passionate desire to be effectively used by God to reach the lost.
4. Spirit Led Giving To act on the recognition that the monetary blessings afforded by God are ultimately for the honor and glory of His name, and He in turn "...will open the flood gates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it."
5. Faith Filled Risks The ability to follow the voice of God, trusting HIM to do the work even when the opportunity appears impossible, because: "the one who calls you is faithful."
1 Thessalonians 5:24
6. Heart for Reaching the Lost A sincere and passionate inward desire, mobilized by the Holy Spirit in us to proclaim the Good News of Salvation and impact the world for Christ. For the Son of Man came to seek and save what was lost.
7. Spiritual Heritage Emergence Yesterday's paradigm is the propelling model for new initiatives that lead us to be globally engaged and ignite us to empower International Workers for active ministry endeavors.
The goals of Great Commission Women shall be:
1. To enlist every fully devoted Christ follower of all generations in effective fervent prayer.
2. To encourage Christ followers to seek an intimate relationship with Him through intentional spiritual formation.
3. To engage in reaching the lost.
