+GOD’S STEWARDS ARE SAINTS & SINNERS…we rejoice in and live out what the LORD has declared us to be through His cross! At the same time we are His stewards who recognize our battle against sin and its consequences each day!
+ GOD’S STEWARDS ARE IN THE WORLD, BUT NOT OF THE WORLD…we know that the LORD sets us apart from the world by the transforming power of the Gospel, as it sends us into the world to live out the Good News!
+ GOD’S STEWARDS LIVE WITH AN AWARENESS OF THE PRESENT AND FUTURE, OF TIME AND ETERNITY…we live intentionally in the light of the LORD’s eternal purpose while being firmly committed to His rule in the here and now!
