Invitation from Jim Hamilton to the First Redeemer Institute Seminar on the Local Church!

Dear Brother or Sister in Christ,

Is there a relationship between your local church and discipleship? I’m not asking about the discipleship program at your local church, I’m asking if God might mean for the church to be the discipleship program.

Is there a relationship between your local church and evangelism? Again, I’m not asking about the evangelism program(s) at your local church, I’m asking if God might mean for the church to be the evangelism program.

Is there a relationship between your local church and world missions? No surprise here: I’m not asking about how your church participates in missionary endeavors, rather, I’m asking if God’s might intend to reach those who have never heard through the planting of healthy churches on the mission field.

We would like to invite you to a Saturday morning seminar on “The Local Church: God’s Program for Evangelism and Discipleship.”

Jesus said that he would build his church, and we believe that the “program” that he gave his disciples to use in their efforts to fulfill the great commission is The Local Church. If you would like to join us in thinking further about what this means for local church ministry, we invite you to join us from 9AM to noon on Saturday November 10th at First Baptist Church in Missouri City.

We want maximum glory for God here in Houston, and we pray he will use us in hallowing his name and winning new worshipers for him. There is more work to be done in this city than any of our churches can individually accomplish. We want to come alongside you and join you in the pursuit of local church health. Just as great teammates make individual players better, so also our individual churches will be improved as church health spreads. What is good for the gospel is good for our local church. Each local church will thrive as other local churches flourish.

Would you prayerfully consider coming to this seminar to think with us about local church health?

That she might be without stain, or wrinkle, or any other blemish,

Dr. Jim Hamilton
Preaching Elder,
Baptist Church of the Redeemer
Assistant Professor of Biblical Studies
Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

For the glory of God, Baptist Church of the Redeemer seeks to obey Christ in the great commission task of making disciples by the power of the Spirit.
