Surrendering All, Seeking One!
After 40 days of praying for one person to share God’s love with everyday, and after some enthusiastic discussion, the leadership at Water’s Edge has revised the mission statement to read the following: “Surrendering All, Seeking One” “Surrendering All” is short for surrendering everything in our lives to the Kingship of Christ, and “Seeking One” is short for seeking one person every day to share God’s love with!
We believe the church is called to be people who surrender all aspects of their lives to the Lordship of Jesus Christ and who actively employ the seeking love of God in their community. The church cannot wait for people to “come to church”. Instead they must be actively seeking the one sheep that went astray. Why? Because in Jesus Christ God came seeking after us! At Water’s Edge we believe that if our love is not a seeking love it is not an accurate reflection of Christ’s love, therefore we are committed to Surrendering All and Seeking One!
