I am the Church, You are the Church, We are the Church, Together!  – Where are you in your faith journey?

Evangelization – the essential mission of the Church. As Jesus said at the end of the Gospel of Matthew: “Go and make disciples of all nations.” To evangelize means to bring the good news of the Gospel to all we encounter by teaching, being channels of the gift of grace, reconciling sinners with God, and perpetuating Christ’s sacrifice in the Mass. The fruit of evangelization is new disciples of Jesus.

Disciple – a person who accepts and assists in the spreading of the good news of Jesus Christ. Christian discipleship is the process by which disciples grow in the Lord Jesus Christ and are equipped by the Holy Spirit, who resides in our hearts, to overcome the pressures and trials of this present life and become more and more Christlike. This process requires believers to respond to the Holy Spirit’s prompting to examine their thoughts, words and actions and compare them with the Word of God and the Tradition of the Church as good stewards.

Steward – a person who accepts the responsibility that Christians have in maintaining and using wisely the gifts that God has bestowed. God wishes us to be his collaborators in the work of creation, redemption and sanctification. A good steward gives of their time, talent and treasure in order to be an collaborator in the work of evangelization.
