Our One Supreme Purpose

Acts 26:16

Anniversaries by their nature are times of reflection on the past. That is fine, but we can't live there. We live in the present and look to the future. Today we celebrate 39 years as an organized body of believers. To God be the glory for all He has accomplished in and through this church. Perhaps in the past 39 years someone has asked the question, "Why?" Surely there are more than enough churches in Bloomington. Why does Grace Baptist Temple exist? What is the reason...what is the purpose...

(Acts 26:16) "But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee;" (Phil 3:13) "Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,"

…That one thing is to exalt Jesus Christ

I. We Seek To Exalt The Lord Through Our Worship.

II. We Seek To Exalt The Lord Through The Demonstration of His Love.

III. We Seek To Exalt The Lord As We Communicate His Grace To Others.
