OUR VISION FOR GOLD 2014!
Our 2014 GOLD Ministry Theme is "Seeking Godly Wisdom" (#SGW) from Matthew 6:33 - "But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well." Young Adults, we all fall short of the glory of God and in our particular generation, it is especially difficult not to fall into sin. We are not here to judge you, but instead uplift and learn about Christ together. Even Jesus said His purpose wasn't to call the righteous but the sick (Mark 2: 16-17). Understand that the purpose of our ministry is to help build each other spiritually. When you seek His wisdom, the effort to avoid sin will develop naturally in your spirit. But first, you must do your part seeking opportunities to grow in Christ! If you are already one walking in righteousness, continue your walk with us as iron sharpens iron and we learn from each other. Join us in our prayer calls, general meetings, future events, and volunteer opportunities!
We offer five branches in GOLD to assist with your spiritual growth:
+ SPIRITUAL BUILDING - events to develop us spiritually
+ ADMINISTRATIVE - GOLD logistics and communication
+ FELLOWSHIP- develops events among members and others
+ MARKETING - advertises GOLD events
+ COMMUNITY SERVICE - community volunteer opportunities, allowing us to actively demonstrate to others who Christ is!
We look forward to seeking God's love and wisdom with you!
10/10/10 - SEEKING GODLY WISDOM
You will see 10/10/10 all over our page and possibly already by some of our members on your timeline! Well, find out now what it is! Our 2014 Theme, "Seeking Godly Wisdom" (#SGW), coincides with the Ivy Baptist Church 2014 Corporate Theme, "Embracing Our Spiritual Identity" (#EOSI) from 2 Corinthians 5:17. IBC has developed a 10/10/10 Spiritual Plan to help us develop personally and spiritually in Christ and seek the wisdom of God. 10/10/10 is ten minutes each of scripture reading, prayer, and developing a spiritual discipline daily. We will post a new 10/10/10 schedule weekly and invite you to join in with us! The blueprint is already laid out for you, all you have to do is DO IT! Visit the Ivy Baptist Church main Facebook page for more information on 10/10/10: http://www.facebook.com/ivybaptistchurch
TOOLS TO #SGW - THE BOOK OF WISDOM
If you are not familiar with the Bible, we suggest you begin with Proverbs. Proverbs is the Bible Book of Wisdom. We suggest reading the NIV, NLT, or a Study Bible version. Not quite convinced?
WELL, DID YOU KNOW....
Proverbs says, "Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall." (Proverbs 16:18 NIV)
Proverbs says, "...A trustworthy man keeps a secret" (Proverbs 11:13)
Proverbs says, "A righteous man is cautious in friendship, but the way of the wicked leads them astray" (Proverbs 12:15 NIV)
Proverbs says, "If you argue your case with a neighbor, do not betray another man's confidence." (Proverbs 25:9 NIV)
Interesting verses one barely hears recited on situations found in our everyday lives! #SGW
UNSURE OF SALVATION?
Many preach of gaining salvation but lack teaching what salvation IS! Thus, many get saved and are unsure what to do following becoming saved. Upon salvation, we are to rid ourselves and allow God to take new ownership. We are to live our lives to become holy. Galatians 5:16-26 greatly outlines what we were before Christ found us and what we are to become after we are saved. It doesn't happen overnight. If you have been wondering salvation or how to live a saved life, join our Devotional Call and come to our fellowship events as we demonstrate the greatness of living for God! We welcome any and everyone!
AN UPLIFTING WORD
"That moment you burst into tears alone in your room and realize no one knows how sad you really are." -Unknown
We all have pain. Whether it is death, self-worth, illness, rejection, betrayal, bitterness, etc. Many of our sins come from internal pain. We want to show you the goodness and peace of seeking Christ in your tribulation. We want you to experience the deliverance that God's wisdom can grant you from years of a stronghold. You are not alone.
