But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. John 4:23

2. Pillar of Partnering with other believer’s.

To fellowship with other believers—coming together in life groups for the purpose of building relationships.

Though one may be over powered by another, two can with stand him. And a three fold cord is not quickly broken. Ecclesiastes 4:12

Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving. Colossians 4:2

4. Pillar of Principles to Live by.

To live a disciplined life – each of us must devote ourselves to becoming disciples.

But reject profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise yourself toward godliness. 8For bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come. 1 Timothy 4:7-8

5. Pillar of Providing for the needs of others.

To be a person of Compassion—each is called to find and fill needs; to be a servant.

Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. 36 But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. Matthew 9:35–36

6. Pillar of Planting churches.

To expand God’s Kingdom through ministry. Each of us has been gifted to serve in ministry and to grow God’s kingdom.

And Jesus came and spoke to them,saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19″Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20″teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen. Matthew 28:18–20

7. Pillar of Promoting Jesus.

To reach others through your story. Each of us has a unique story that we need to share with others.
