Key Verse:

“Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” (Psalm 46:10)

 

What's Our Image?
By Pastor Jon Haakana

If asked, what would you say the “image” of Mount Olive Lutheran Church is? Now remember that how Mount Olive is seen by our community and surrounding area is based on the relationships that they have with the disciples of Christ of Mount Olive (that’s you!). Would you say that they see Mount Olive as a church that only takes care of themselves, concerned only about their own needs, or would you say that they see us as “missional” disciples of Christ? Now when we talk of the disciples of Christ or churches being “missional” we need to discover the definition of missional: “An adjective that describes the way in which we do all of our activities, rather than identifying any one particular activity.” To be missional is to align all the activities, programs and functions of the church around the mission of God. As we see in the book of Revelation that the words God gave to John to record, the true Christian Church will always be missional:

“I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the bright Morning Star. The Spirit and the bride say, ‘Come!’ And let him who hears say, ‘Come!’ Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life.” (Revelation 22:16-17)
