THE FIVE PURPOSES OF BLAIRLAND CHURCH
Worship
Love the Lord with all your heart. The way to love God with all our heart is to worship Him.
Worshiping God is the first purpose of the church.
Ministry
Love your neighbor as yourself. Ministry is demonstrating God’s love to others by meeting their needs and healing their hurts in the name of Jesus. Ministry is more than attendance, ministry is service.
Evangelism
Go and make disciples. It is our responsibility and privilege to share the good news wherever we go.
Church growth is commanded by Jesus. God wants people to be saved.
Fellowship
Fellowship is identification with the body of Christ. Going, baptizing, and teaching are the essential
elements of the disciple-making process. As Christians we are called to belong, not just believe. The
church is to provide fellowship for believers.
Discipleship
 Teaching them to obey. We are to educate God’s people. Discipleship is the process of helping people become more like Christ in their thoughts, feelings and actions. This process begins when a person is born again and continues throughout the rest of their life. We are called to reach people, but also to teach them.
