RUN FAST: RUN FAR : RUN TOGETHER
S2S Servants are those men and women who passionately love Jesus and honor His Word by diligently studying and obeying Scripture. They are committed to God’s mission – the message of repentance, forgiveness, and full life offered through Christ for all nations. They passionately pursue extending God’s kingdom to those nearby and to the ends of the earth. They believe both men and women are created in the image of God and this shared image-bearing responsibility propels them both to love well and to lead well. They seek to live a kingdom ethic of leadership – marked by a passion to serve rather than a fight for position or authority. Their unity serves as a weapon as they display the scriptural “one another” principles.
They esteem, promote, and build up the other and honor the Holy Spirit who blesses Jesus’ Bride with every spiritual gift to build the Church and reach the world. Even when attacked, S2S servants sacrificially take in their flesh the sufferings of Christ who was accused, insulted, mocked, and condemned. In return, they pray for those who attack them, seeking to live with “purified lips” that honor the Lord Jesus and the Church as the Bride of Christ. S2S servants are marked by humility, integrity, teachability, godliness, and urgency for the Gospel. They remove hurdles of sinful tradition so that the other can run fast, run far, and run together to complete the Great Commission. Together unified, they are on the move.
