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 28:19-20



 



Our Strategy

Loving…Teaching…Reaching

We are a church that strives to fulfill the Great Commission and the Great commandment by being Loving…Teaching…Reaching

As we rely on the Lord for help in being a people that are Loving…Teaching…Reaching our hope and prayer is the Lord will help us to “Make Disciples” and help us in our desire to see multitudes saved, multitudes baptized and multitudes growing closer to Jesus.


Loving

The Great Commandment (Matthew 22:37-39)

37 Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’] 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.

Part of what we are about here at Long Leaf Baptist is to be a Loving people.

First and foremost we want to strive to love the Lord with every fiber in our being.

Secondly, we must always remember to love others

 


Teaching and Reaching

The Great Commandment (Matthew 28:19-20)

19 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.

Jesus commands us to “Make Disciples”

One way we can make disciples is by being a “teaching” people.

Here at Long Leaf Baptist we to are striving to be a people that are teaching one another in the truth of God’s Word. We do this through preaching, Sunday School, Bible studies, small groups, mentoring and finding any possible way to help one another grow in the Word

We also fulfill the Lord’s command of making disciples by doing the “Go” part of the great commission.

That’s why at Long Leaf Baptist we strive to be a “Reaching” people.

We want to be a people that are focused on reaching the lost. We must minister to our body of believers within the church but we also must “reach” outside the church walls proclaiming to this lost world the good news that Jesus Saves!
