Happy New Year Origin!

Dear Origin Family,

I wish you all a Happy New Year! I pray you celebrated the start of 2020 in joyful spirits with friends and family. 2019 was quite a year for all of us at Origin. So much has happened in our lives, in sometimes less than favorable circumstances. But we’ve also achieved quite a lot for the Kingdom of God. One of our greatest accomplishments this year was regaining clarity on our vision.

After much deliberation, the leaders of our church were able to agree unanimously that Origin Church exists to “Love People as Christ Loves”. At first glance, this may sound simplistic, but it is a very profound summary of what we have been called by God to do.

It’s important for us to remember that our purpose as a church is first to follows Jesus. His example for us was clear; He simply loves people. As followers of Christ, we will also love people; even when they seem unlovable.

My hope for 2020 is that our entire church family actively engaged in winning souls to Christ by demonstrating His love at every turn. I pray that the Holy Spirit will fill us and lead us with the powerful message of Salvation to setting the entire city on fire for Jesus. I encourage you all to remain faithful to our calling as there’s still a lot of work ahead to grow the Kingdom of God. Have wonderful 2020!
