What We Teach: limited to God’s work

These folk know where it’s at. I like their description.

* Limited to God’s Work: We believe there are all kinds of good causes in the world today. However, the church’s mission is not to be spread thin accomplishing every good and noble cause. Rather, God has established the church to glorify Him and uphold the truth so people may be set free. We must not be distracted by other things (cf. Luke 10:41-42). Therefore, we do not get involved in politics, social welfare, recreation, entertainment, secular education, etc. Just as organizations like the American Cancer Society or the American Diabetes Association understand that they cannot accomplish their mission if they divide their efforts and resources to accomplish someone else’s mission, we recognize that we will never be able to give glory to God or uphold the truth properly if we strive to divide our efforts and resources to accomplish other missions. While we encourage and teach our members as individuals to be engaged in all manner of good deeds, we reserve the church’s resources for the work God has given it.

Would to God that every congregation of his people had the same singular focus!
