Serve

Christians are called and commanded to serve the Kingdom of God.  Serving others is a natural result of our faith.  Your involvement in Christian Service will help bridge your Biblical learning with real-world experiences. Your participation will not only help others, it will also help you discover your interests and gifts. 


What is Christian Service?
Christian service is using the gifts, talents, abilities, personalities, resources, and time that God has given us in order to bring the gospel in both word and action to people in the world.  Christian service is any action that we take that gets the focus off of ourselves and onto the people that Christ wants us to serve.
 
Christ is the best example of demonstrating Christian servanthood the way it is meant to be in God's eyes.  Being a true servant is seeing people as an opportunity to develop a relationship with rather than just as needy people we walk by every day.  Being able to see them with Christ's eyes will show them His presence within the depths of our hearts.  Serving others is one of the most effective ways to lead them to the Lord.  Many forget or ignore this command of the Christian life, but it is best to show others Christ through actions rather than words alone. 
"Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others. Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: Who, being in the very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped [seized for his own purpose], but made himself nothing, tacking the very nature of a servant..." (Philippians 2:3-7).
