(Ephesians 4:11-13) New Living Translation
“He is the one who gave these gifts to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. Their responsibility is to equip God's people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ, until we come to such unity in our faith and knowledge of God's Son that we will be mature and full grown in the Lord, measuring up to the full stature of Christ.”
Here at Whetstone Ministries we have been chosen as God’s tool to be a church whose first objective is to reach the lost, the hurting, the depressed, the frustrated, and the confused. We have been called to lead them to receive the gift of salvation through the finished work of the cross and then to accept the risen Christ as Lord of their lives. We are then to provide them with a place where they can find love, acceptance, encouragement, forgiveness, guidance, and hope. Our next objective is to the Believers, for whom, we are to provide a place where they may become sharp in their faith and use of God’s Word; then we are to assist them in remaining sharp through meditation, study, and application of God’s Word; and finally, as we all mature through love, fellowship, and obedience to God’s Word, our desire is to truly become a church “Where Iron Sharpens Iron”.
