Sharing one's story and testimony holds immense power in fostering spiritual growth, building connections, and inspiring others on their own faith journey. A personal narrative becomes a testament to the transformative power of God's love and grace. As we open up about our own experiences, struggles, and triumphs, we break down barriers of isolation and create an atmosphere of authenticity within the church. This vulnerability not only strengthens bonds but also provides a safe space for others to share their own stories. We believe that Jesus can turn mess into a message; real-life examples of this transformation can inspire others to explore their own spiritual journey and consider the life-changing message of Jesus Christ.
This phrase "Share Your Story" is our 4th value here at Collective Church in Kinston NC. We care about the stories of every single person who steps foot into the doors of our church. As a church. we echo the apostle Paul's words in 1 Timothy chapter 1 where he says "Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners'—and I am the worst of them all. But God had mercy on me so that Christ Jesus could use me as a prime example of his great patience with even the worst sinners. Then others will realize that they, too, can believe in him and receive eternal life." Click the button above to watch the full sermon!
