We must be unapologetic regarding our proclamation of Jesus Christ’s love and how that love is available because of Christ’s sacrifice for us all.


We must reclaim and rekindle the call for all persons, lay and clergy to greater service Christ and Christ’s Church.


We must align our resources to the mission and vision, which helps to equip the local church for greater witness glocally (locally and globally). It is this focus which will help to guide us forward during the times of unknown and uncertainties.


When Jesus says, “I am the vine; you are the branches”(John 15:5), he reiterates that fruit is derived from humanity’s relationship to God in Christ; the fruit is God’s fruit. The need to produce fruit is inherent in the faith story and a responsibility of all believers. John 15:8 (CEB) states, “My Father is glorified when you produce much fruit and in this way prove that you are my disciples.” Even John Wesley asked three questions of spiritual leaders: “Have they faith? Have they gifts? And Have they fruit?

As faithful followers of Jesus Christ, we must be those bearers of fruit, such as LOVE, HOPE, and JOY, while also bearing the fruit of attending to the least, lost, last, and voiceless to ensure there is lasting change in the world; it is in this that all will know that we are Christ’s disciples.
