“People don't buy what you do; they buy why you do it.” Simon Sinek
So, why do WEC do what we do? Why do we seek to see Christ known, loved and worshipped amongst the unreached peoples of the world? John Bagg shares his first compelling reason.
#1: The glory of Christ in the nations.
“It was for the sake of the Name that they went out ...” (3 John 1:7).
We believe that the way we do things is as important as the things that we do. So, in all we do together in WEC we seek to do it “for the sake of the Name of Jesus Christ" – his Name, his glory, his Church, his Kingdom. This is our aspiration and our intent.
Is Jesus worthy of glory and praise? Yes!
Does it matter that his name remains unknown amongst almost a third of the world’s population? Yes! How can anyone worship Jesus if they have not heard of him or don’t understand his message? And how will they hear unless someone lives amongst them to share the good news through word and action?
Does it bother you that Jesus’s Name remains unknown? It bothers us! We believe that he alone is worthy our praise, glory and adoration. We see all the deities and the other things that the peoples of the world worship, but Jesus declared himself to be the Way, the Truth and the Life. We believe that there is only One Name under heaven by which people MUST be saved. Jesus Christ!
We keep this motivation at the centre of our service whatever we are involved in. So, if you want to join us in taking the good news of Jesus Christ to the nations for the sake of his honour and glory, then please get in touch.
