"And Jesus came and said to them, 'All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations…'" Matthew 28:18-19
The Gospel is good news meant to be shared with others. You cannot “keep” the Gospel for yourself; it is meant to be given away to all people.
Jesus speaks to His disciples in multiple environments about the need to proclaim the Gospel, to let others know about the good news. This is our invitation from Jesus as well: to proclaim the Gospel to all people. This means talking with people about Jesus and sharing how Jesus has transformed and is transforming our lives. Our faith is not intended to be private or secret but to be lived publicly in front of others.

December 3 | 5:00pm
Jesus said, "Follow me." At Trellis Nights, we will take our next steps together toward following Him. Our evenings will be focused on a practice of spiritual formation. We'll eat, worship, and learn experientially as we seek to close the gap between what we believe and who we are becoming in Christ. Our Trellis Night on "Sharing the Gospel" is December 3.
