Core Value: Witness
The Mission Statement of Mt. Horeb is “Experiencing and Sharing Christ’s Presence.” That means that when we experience the presence of the Risen Christ through worship, prayer, and faithful relationships, we cannot keep that experience to ourselves; we are called to share it with others. Witnessing to the good news and deeds of God is our joyful response to what God has done and is doing. In his letter to the Romans, the Apostle Paul calls us to witness when he reminds us that the saving power of God’s Word works through our evangelism:
“Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” But how are they to call on one in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in one of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone to proclaim him? And how are they to proclaim him unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” – Romans 10:13-15
Being a witness to God through Christ is an everyday act that happens in and through the daily lives of believers. There are also ways that we can witness together as the Body of Christ in this place. Mt. Horeb seeks to be a witness to the community in a variety of ways throughout its ministries.
