Counseling: The goal of this Ministry is to lead new or rededicated members to an assurance of their salvation. This counseling takes place on Sunday mornings during the Invitation Period as people are assigned to us by Pastor Reed.
Follow-up: The goal of this Ministry is to be instrumental in the growth and development of new Christians, and to those who come for rededication. This goal is accomplished through regular one-on-one contact by means of telephone calls, home visits, and sending cards to those assigned to us.
Discipleship Ministry Model
COUNSELING GOAL – ASSURANCE OF SALVATION
(Acts 2:38-39; Romans 10:9-10; I John 5:11-13)
During the invitation period, under the direction of Pastor Reed, we counsel those who come by Baptism or Christian Experience. We must be prepared to talk to them about the assurance of their salvation. We assure them that upon the profession of faith in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ our Savior, we are saved!! We do this by sharing our personal testimony and God’s Word that supports our belief in the saving power of Christ Jesus.
FOLLOWUP GOAL - TO MAKE DISCIPLES
Matthew 28-18-20, Ephesians 4:1-6; Acts 18:23
Each ministry member is assigned to a new or rededicated member. We want new members to know that they are welcome and loved at Fairview. It is our responsibility to provide unconditional love, friendship, and fellowship through one-on-one conversations, visits, phone calls, and cards. We continue to give them individual attention for as long as it is needed. At our monthly meetings, we share information and encourage each other.
WE WELCOME YOU TO BECOME A PART OF THIS VITAL AND REWARDING MINISTRY.
