WHAT KIND OF CHURCH IS THIS?

One of the most often asked questions about Courts of Praise Worship Center is “What kind of church is this?” We are a multi-cultural interdenominational community of Christ-following adults, teens, and children aided by His spirit, to demonstrate and share the truths, principles and promises that He taught and modeled.

THE GREAT COMMISION

And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen. (Matthew 28:18-20)
  • To “Love God with all your heart” is worship
  • To “Love your neighbor as yourself” is ministry.
  • To “Go and make disciples” is evangelism.
  • To “Baptize…” is to put off the old and put on the new.
  • To “Teach them to obey everything” is discipleship.
The Great Commission - A Personal Calling
In the Great Commission, Jesus calls every Christian to step out in faith and spread the Good News. This is faith in action! People who obey this command change their spiritual lives forever! It could be spreading the Good News to a neighbor or moving to another country to reach the people there. It could be sharing with less fortunate kids down the street or spreading the Word in a town two hours away. Wherever we go, every faithful Christian is compelled through obedience to share the Gospel. If you're a believer in Jesus Christ, where has He called you to go? Who has God put on your heart to share the gift of salvation? What small or large steps can you take, with the knowledge that Christ will be by your side, "to make disciples of all the nations"?
