Faithful Snapshots

REVELATION 21

The New Jerusalem

1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the old heaven and the old earth had disappeared. And the sea was also gone. 2 And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven like a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.

3 I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, “Look, God’s home is now among his people! He will live with them, and they will be his people. God himself will be with them.

 4 He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.”

5 And the one sitting on the throne said, “Look, I am making everything new!” And then he said to me, “Write this down, for what I tell you is trustworthy and true.” 6 And he also said, “It is finished! I am the Alpha and the Omega—the Beginning and the End.

NOTES:

Questions to Consider:

  1. How does a person go about hearing from God and answering the call of God?
  2. What might someone expect when answering the call of God?
  3. What do the blessings of God look like?
  4. How does one become a blessing?

Our Beliefs

These are the beliefs Wayfinders hold to be true:

We believe in one God revealed in the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe that the Old and New Testament Scriptures, inspired by the Holy Spirit, contain all truth necessary to faith and Christian living.

We believe that man is created in the image of God but that image is marred and corrupted by rebellion or sin and brokenness.

We believe that God has given humans free-will to choose or reject God’s love and enjoy living in forgiveness.

We believe that through Jesus Christ the whole human race enjoys the opportunity to know God and be delivered from the dominion of sin.

We believe that believers are to be set apart by the Holy Spirit to live out God’s dream for creation.

Our Chief Value

CHRIST IN YOU! NOW GO!

We are all created in the image of God so...

We can live out God's will because God is within us and for us.

Our Values

LOVE

Because God actively pursues us, we will cherish everyone.

GRACE

God's grace is for everyone; everywhere. No exceptions.

INTENTIONAL

We do what we do on purpose: to see God's dreams made reality.

GENEROUS

All good things come from God. We give in defiance of selfishness and greed.

TRANSPARENCY

Bringing openness and accountability to how we interact.

Liturgies

The Apostles’ Creed 


I believe in God, the Father Almighty, 

Maker of heaven and earth; 

And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord;

Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, 

born of the Virgin Mary, 

Suffered under Pontius Pilate, 

was crucified, dead, and buried; 

He descended into hell; 

the third day He rose again from the dead; 


(whooooo!)


He ascended into heaven, 

and sits at the right hand of God, 

the Father Almighty,

From there He will come to judge 

the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, 

the holy Christian church, 

the communion of saints, 

the forgiveness of sins,

the resurrection of the body, 

and the life everlasting. 

Amen.

 Lord's Prayer


Our Father, who art in heaven,

hallowed be thy name;

thy kingdom come;

thy will be done;

on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our debts,

as we forgive our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation;

but deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom,

the power and the glory,

for ever and ever.

Amen.

Eucharist

Our practice of communion as instructed by Jesus is a remembering of the Lord until he comes again...

It is also a re-membering of the body of Christ... In this act of faith we are reminded that we are made one in Christ and one with Christ...
