The impulse to serve comes from the love Jesus has shown us. The way we serve is modeled after Jesus' compassion, generosity, and life-giving strength. Whether we cross a cultural border, walk alongside a vulnerable person in our community, or step into a role within our church—we want to live and love like Jesus.
Following Jesus means being sent as a servant in the world. Of all the teachings of Jesus only one did he call the greatest. “Love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength; and love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matthew 22:37-39). This extraordinary command is what guides us as we seek to serve others in our cities, workplaces, and neighborhoods. Learn ways to get involved!
