Letter from the Pastor
When I first understood my purpose and assignment from all the time I spent
learning from our Lord Jesus Christ and God’s Holy Spirit (I am still being taught
today), I was under the impression that everything that was being taught was for my
own personal spiritual growth. The more I grew in Christ, the more I was blessed in
establishing a personal relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. It was not until I
understood that I was not just being taught for my own salvation, but I was being
prepared to share all the things that I learned with others.  It’s hard to put into
words, how you feel once God has revealed the purpose in which you were
created. While we may have spent all our lives trying to develop ourselves into
something that we see in the world, it’s not until your purpose is revealed that you
get a sense of true freedom.

Once you understand your purpose, many of the worries and heavy concerns about
life simple goes away. Knowing your purpose gives you a clear focus, and while
other things may sound good, the only way you can remain happy and at peace is
by working to achieve your revealed purpose. One of the key components in
praying for your purpose to be revealed is to know the word of God, and
establishing a connection to Jesus Christ. By focusing on applying the word of God
to your life, God will share His designed plan for you, and you will come to
understand how you fit into His plan of salvation. Once you know where and how
you fit into God’s plan, you start to grow in your purpose, and you start to operate in
a life full of God’s salvation. God will then reveal our assignment, which is
embodied in His plan. The thing about understanding your assignment that is very
interesting is the fact that it has nothing to do with your current abilities, talents, or
gifts. You will not be able to identify your assignment by assessing your gifts,
talents, and abilities. Just like your purpose, your life long assignment has to be
revealed to you.

If you look at individuals in the Bible for whom God revealed their assignment to
them, they only had one assignment to fulfill to please God. And you can believe
that what God had revealed to them, they did not feel equipped to do. People like
Abraham, Moses, David, Jonah, Isaiah, Jeremiah, John the Baptist, Peter, Paul,
John, and our Lord Jesus Christ, seen their assignment crystal clear, so must your
purpose and assignment be to you. Again, you cannot make it up, decide what it is,
or determine it yourself, but it must be revealed to you for giving God all the glory
