Paul wrote these words to the Philippians: “I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ” (Philippians 1:4-6). At EPIC, we desire to share this same kind of devotion to one another and to God’s mission. Paul also wrote to the Thessalonians saying, “we were delighted to share with you not only the Gospel of God but our lives as well because you had become so dear to us” (1 Thessalonians 2:8). At the center of our church is a desire to share our lives and the Gospel with one another and the world. Because these desires are central to us, our aim is to lead more and more people into Gospel partnership. The partnership process involves the following:
- Sign up for Starting Point. This class provides an introduction to the church and to Gospel Partnership.
- Read and Sign the Partnership Agreement.
- Talk to one of the elders about your agreement (after receiving the signed agreement, one of the elders will be in touch to talk for a few minutes and to give you a gift).
Below are two messages to help you gain a better understanding of why we encourage partnership at EPIC. You can also sign up for Starting Point Below.
