“He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God,” (Micah 6:8).
As a church, we want to partner with God on his mission to accomplish his will here on earth. Although there are many great things happening at Seerley Creek, the greatest portion of our time, resources, prayer and attention are focused upon three things: Justice, Mercy and our Walk.
God cares deeply about justice. What is justice? In short, it is fairness without favoritism. There is a world all around us crying out for justice: immigrants who lack the skills they need to navigate in society, minorities who feel the sting of discrimination, impoverished people who can’t get on their feet.
As a church, we are going to continually pursue the opportunities God provides to bring justice to those around us who need it most.
In his most popular sermon, Jesus blessed those who show mercy. Mercy is the active demonstration of compassion toward those who need it: single moms who need help caring for their kids, elderly who are in need of companions, church members who experience financial hardship, couples who are having marriage difficulties, and kids and students who need role models.
Thank God for his mercy on us! As a church, we will demonstrate mercy to those who need it when it is in our power to act.
At Seerley Creek, we want to be characterized by our humble walk with God. We are faithful to attend worship. We are connected in godly relationships with one another. We are devoted to understanding and applying the Bible. We participate in the mission of the church. We raise our kids and grandkids to know and love Jesus. And, we partner with the Spirit to plant seeds of faith and cultivate new faith in those who are early on in their walk with God.
As a congregation, we are actively following Jesus, humbly trying our best to match him, step for step. Walking with God – discipleship – will always be at the heart of our church.
