I had a great time last night at our first core meeting.  This morning I was thinking about our mission statement at Redemption-

Advancing the Glory of God through the Gospel of Christ

Our desire is that this statement would become ever more clear in our minds and more prominent in our hearts.

So, here is a way to test whether you've really "gotten it."

How would you explain our mission statement to a six year old?

Here is what came to my mind-

God is the greatest and there is nothing better than knowing Him and being His child.  Through Jesus and what He did we can know God and be His children.  We want everyone to know God and be His child.
