The mission of Remedy Church is to enjoy and extend restored life in Jesus.
We Be and We Do
In Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. 2 Corinthians 5.19
There is a being and a doing nature to being a Christian. Christianity isn’t just a social marker or national or family grouping. Becoming a Christian means becoming a Christ-follower, taking on a new identity and assuming a new responsibility in the world.
Enjoy Restored Life
The Bible says that in Christ, God was reconciling us to himself. So we who were once alienated from him and hostile toward him, he has now reconciled back to him (Col. 1.21), and he has done that by the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, through our faith in him. Before anything else, we are sons and daughters of God, co-heirs and brothers and sisters with Jesus (Rom. 8.14-17)!
So one basic part of our identity as Christians is who we are, and God wants us to find joy, delight, and satisfaction in that. He wants us to enjoy the restored life we’ve received in Jesus.
Extend Restored Life
Now that we have been reconciled to God, through Jesus, to experience restored life, he has entrusted that message of reconciliation to us. The way he is extending his message of hope and forgiveness to the world is through us (2 Cor. 5.20). He calls us his ambassadors.
Jesus’ last words to his followers were sending words. In John 20.21 he said, “As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.” God didn’t rescue us from death and disaster just to sit. Now that we’ve been rescued, he wants us to join him in his rescue mission. He wants us to extend restored life in word and deed.
He wants the entire world to know of the rescue, hope, and restored life that he offers in Jesus, and he has sent us as his messengers, both in how we enjoy Christ and what we say about him.
