Theology Behind The Message

The Great Commandment, to love God and love people, defines the true identity of those who are called his church. Great Commandment love is at the heart of who we are and what we do. Compare Christ's Great Commandment with the equally important Great Commission:
"Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you" (Matthew 28:19-20).

"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.' This is the great and foremost commandment. The second is like it, 'you shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depends the whole Law and the Prophets" (Matthew 22:37-40).

The Great Commission - to declare God's truth on the vital issues of sin, Scripture, and salvation, and to call people to yield in obedience to God - relates more to the mission of the church. The Great Commandment - to love God and love others - defines our identity and heart as a church.

Key resource explaining the relational theology message

As we walk out this Great Commandment principle, we increasingly become Spirit-empowered disciples who are better able to love and serve the world around us. A Spirit-empowered disciple is one who:

Loves the Lord

Lives His Mission

Loves His People

Lives His Word

As we experience how we've been loved by Christ, we are freed up to love others and meet them at their point of need. Philippians 4:19 says, "And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. To our God and Father be glory forever and ever. Amen."
Our God is a need-meeting God! We are intimately known and cared for by our Heavenly Father through Christ. He is meeting our needs and empowering us to then go care for the needs of others. By the power of the Spirit, we are able to be the hands and feet of Christ and bring reconciliation to a hurting world. 

Meaningful relationships with God and others awaits you!
