Compassion for the Broken and Rejected

“When we heard about it, our hearts melted, and no spirit remained any more in anyone because of you. For Adonai, your God, He is God, in heaven above and on earth below. ”

— Joshua 2:11

In Joshua chapter two, we read the story of how God used the faith of a prostitute to bring victory to the Israelites. You may be familiar with Rahab’s story, a woman of no consequence who was living in Jericho. The word had gotten out that there were miracles being done by the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, but these were more than just rumors; the people of the village were full of fear and awe. Rahab knew these men meant business and surely they would succeed in taking the village because God was with them. When they stumbled upon her house, it was no accident but rather a divine appointment. Read the full story of Rahab here.

Some people look at Rahab and see only a prostitute, but when we look at this passage, we see her as a woman of peace. She was the person God prepared for His purpose. Her heart was made ready and she had the faith to receive the men who arrived at her door as servants of the most high God.

Read the full story of Rahab in Joshua, Chapter 2.

When our disciple makers meet prostitutes, we take this same approach. On the outside, they may look like women of little consequence, but we know that among them are women of peace whose hearts have been prepared to receive God and make a way for the kingdom to enter their communities. It all starts with compassion. We pray that the Lord would give us greater compassion to reach those that are unloved, hurting, and discarded by society.

We believe the Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are inspired by God and are the revelation of God to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct. (2 Timothy 3:15-17, 1 Peter 1:21)

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent who has revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Luke 3:22)

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father where He intercedes for us, in His present rule as Head of the Church, and in His personal return in power and glory. (Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:31)

We believe in the creation of mankind in God’s image, and the fall of man, resulting in universal guilt and total depravity; and the necessity, therefore, of redemption and restoration; that all men and women are lost spiritually and face the judgment of God, that Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation, and that repentance of sin and faith in Jesus Christ is necessary for regeneration by the Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:26-27, Genesis 2:17)

We believe salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. By the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, being justified by grace through faith, man becomes an heir of God, according to the hope of eternal life. (Luke 24:47, John 3:3)

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the saved unto the resurrection of eternal life in the presence of our Lord, and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation and eternal punishment. (Matthew 25:46, Mark 9:43-48)

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and that all true believers are members of His body, the Church, which has the duty to preach the Gospel to every person. (Ephesians 1:22-23, Ephesians 2:22)

We believe that we must dedicate ourselves to prayer, to the service of our Lord, to His authority over our lives, and to the ministry of teaching, preaching, the prophetic, the apostolic, and evangelism. (Ephesians 4:11-13)

We believe in upholding the ordinances of the church of water baptism and holy communion.

The ordinance of baptism by immersion is commanded by the Scriptures. All who repent and believe in Christ as Savior and Lord are to be baptized. Thus, they declare to the world that they have died with Christ and that they also have been raised with Him to walk in newness of life. (Matthew 28:19, Mark 16:16, Acts 10:47,48, Romans 6:4)

The Lord’s Supper, consisting of the elements—bread and the fruit of the vine—, is the symbol expressing our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Peter 1:4), a memorial of His suffering and death (1 Corinthians 11:26), and a prophecy of His second coming (1 Corinthians 11:26), and is enjoined on all believers “till He comes!”
