Love God, Love others, and Go tell!
As believers, the Bible calls us to Love God with all of our being and to love each other as ourselves. Loving God will only occur with the indwelling of the Holy Spirit as we enter into a personal relationship with Him and strive to spend time with Him through Bible reading, study, and prayer. Serving is an outward expression of that love.
Loving others is evidence of the real follower of God. We are to see others through Jesus’ eyes and genuinely show compassion to them regardless of their circumstance or status.
Each of us has the responsibility to share with others the story of Jesus and His impact in our lives. This should be on a daily and ongoing basis as we grow in our faith and in God’s character.
Transforming our world with God’s love… one life at a time.
Mission is the calling of every believer to love others and make disciples among all nations. Being a disciple of Jesus Christ means that you are committed to go wherever He tells you to go and do whatever He tells you to do. It means you evaluate your spiritual gifts, skills, and resources in light of how they can best be used to advance God’s mission. That mission begins right here in our community and extends to the ends of the earth.
WRBC is supportive of many mission initiatives, both within the church and some in the community. Support comes in different forms, such as through prayer, volunteerism, and through financial contributions. We encourage all church members to be in prayer for WRBC mission efforts. Likewise, we believe and encourage all church members to be active in fulfilling the Great Commission and the greatest commandments and to volunteer to participate in the mission efforts God is calling them to.
Active church members may request financial support, in writing, for any WRBC mission initiative or other mission effort they would like to participate, as long as the mission activity is consistent with the beliefs of WRBC. This request shall be sent to the mission coordinator at least 90 days prior to the activity. With the approval of the mission committee or the Senior Pastor, WRBC will financially support these requests at a level of at least 10% of the overall expense to the participant and as the WRBC budget allows. Non-church members and non-active church members will not generally be supported financially, unless special circumstances exist. The pastor has full and final discretion in mission funding matters.
