Serving Before Saving

At Alvadore Christian we want to be a church where we “serve before we save”. Why? Because that’s what Jesus did. He didn’t wait to serve people before he started saving them. Jesus’ life of service began at his baptism and culminated on his cross. He served long before he saved. What we see in this life of service is a life of meeting immediate and pressing needs. But he didn’t do it just because he was nice or kind (though he was the nicest and kindest person ever to live!). Often, Jesus would meet immediate needs and show how our immediate needs pointed to our ultimate needs. Listen in as we wrestle with this dynamic in Jesus life as we seek to follow in his footsteps.
