OUR FOUR PILLARS OF FAITH

To Show the Love of God by Being like Jesus…

 Stewardship – Our Four Pillars of Faith

 
Our Faith is shown through our stewardship lifestyle choices on how we at Knox show and complete God's good work. God gives us the gifs of resources and time so that we can show God's work in action. As the Apostle James wrote
 
Chapter 2 17) Even so faith, if it has no works, is dead, being by itself. 18)  But someone may well say, “You have faith and I have works; show me your faith without the works, and I will show you my faith by my works.”
 
Our Stewardship to God is to help others spiritually and physically
Our Stewardship to God is based on how Jesus taught us to show love through giving and serving others, willingly.
Our Stewardship to God is to nourish our earth and all of its inhabitants.
Our Stewardship to God is to grow our Faith in our community for all people, of all ages and circumstances by showing God's love in action.
 
As we are able, the people of Knox show their Stewardship to God through our Four Pillars of Faith:
 
1) Pastoral Care – Showing love and spending time with those that need help – physically or spiritually.
2 )Mission & Service – Helping those “from away” through our financial resources in order to spread God's good works locally, across Canada or around the world. Christianity has no borders.
3) Christian Education – We must teach our youth Jesus's message of caring and loving one another. We must teach them to love their neighbour as thy self and to love God with all their heart and soul. We must also teach our adults how to understand the Word of God through study groups. Education is the foundation to understanding what God wants us too be.
4) Worship – We must ensure we have a warm  and welcoming church that is strong today and for the future. Our Knox church must honour the Glory of God in every way by our good deeds. Our Church must show the Glory of God through our prayers, our readings, our reflections and as we must rejoice to the Lord in song.
 
We all can help make Our Church and Our Community of Faith stronger by doing acts of love either through our time or through the financial resources God has bestowed upon us – for all good Gifts come from God.
 
Why do we give – simply – to show God's love in action.
 
May your lives be blessed with Love, Sharing and of God's Gifts, and please help us to remember those that are struggling in Faith and doing their best to make a basic living. Remind us to show our true Christian compassion to help and serve others.
 
Ask and you will receive, receive the gift of helping others. It is time to start building a better Christian world through Faith in Action.
 
Amen and God Bless!
