We share, God saves
I have great news to share! Our church received an award for baptisms for the year of 2017 from our state convention, the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention. What a privilege and joy to be recognized as one of the top churches in baptisms in the state of Texas.
On behalf of the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention, I would like to congratulate you and your church for the faithfulness you’ve shown in reaching the lost for Christ. At the 2018 Empower Conference, we recognized the top 5 baptizing churches in 5 categories for the 2017 year and your church was included. With over 70% of Texans not having a relationship with Jesus or connected to a local church, we can no longer look at Texas as the Buckle of the “Bible Belt” but rather must see it as a mission field in desperate need of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Thank you for your faithfulness in sharing Christ with the lost.Shane Pruitt, Director of Evangelism at the SBTC
With over 2,500 churches in our state convention, this award is a blessing to every member of our church family. This award is also evidence of the love we have for Jesus and our desire to see those around us come to faith in Jesus.
My response to this award is, Go God Go!! All the glory and praise for this award goes to God because He is the one who saves. We share, God saves.
I also want to say, “Thank you!” Thank you for your faithfulness to live out the truth of God’s Word. Thank you for your faithfulness to tell others about Jesus. Thank you for your faithfulness to pray for those who need Jesus to receive Jesus. Thank you for your faithfulness to invite your friends, family and neighbors to CRC. Thank you for walking the walk and talking the talk. Thank you for being a church that is committed to going and making disciples of all nations.
Let’s continue telling others the good news of Jesus. Remember, the BEST is yet to come!
