I have resisted posting any personal resolutions on my blog because they basically consist of me eating less seven layer bean dip and eating more green leafy things. That aside I thought I would post somethings I would like God to do through the Village Chapel in 2007.
First I would like to see our Core Team grow. We have a great group of people who have took up the challenge to be part of this church plant. It has put us on the path to a successful launch but as we get going we are going to need more people on board who can help us minister to those God has put in our church.
Second I would like to see us totally passionate about worshiping Jesus. One of our four core values is to be passionate about worship. Psalm 67 says to Praise the Lord continually and that is my desire for this church. At the end 2007 I would like to see The Village Chapel be completely focused on praising our Lord.
Third I would like to see us reach out to the Lompoc Valley. I think as we focus on worshiping God He will bring people in need of Him. I never want to forget it is about expanding the Kingdom of God. At the end of 2007 I would like to see lives changed with the Hope of the Gospel.
Finally I would like to see deep roots developed in our group. Ephesians 3:17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you being rooted and grounded in love. The word dwell here means deep roots and I desire for the people of The Village Chapel to have their roots in Christ go deeper into His love.
