Pastors Joshua & Tiffany Gaines

We are committed to expressing a living and tangible response to those commandments that Jesus called greatest:

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength,” and “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

 It is our conviction that the Spirit of God has asked us to make this love concrete in the world, incarnate in our thoughts, our bodies, our lives and our every action.

If we have not met you, it would be our honor to meet you immediately following today’s worship service.

Again, thanks for joining us this evening! We hope to see you again very soon. 

Matthew 6:33ESV

How to be Kingdom minded, 10 Keys-Part 2

(6). Endure sufferings and persecutions joyfully. Matthew 11:12 says from the days of John the Baptist until now the Kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force. Different interpretations have been given to this statement made by Jesus Christ. But I’ll like to say that there have been and there will continue to be violent attacks against the Kingdom of God on earth. A Kingdom-minded Christian must not be deterred by these attacks; he must deploy spiritual violence (not physical violence) to survive and overcome these attacks against the Kingdom and the children of the Kingdom.

(7). Set your affection on heavenly things, not on earthly things. Colossians 3:2 says, “Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth” (New King James Version). You must allow heaven to fill your heart. Why should you? Verse 3 tells us the reason: “For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God” (New King James Version).You’re not of this earth again; you’re of heaven – you belong to God who is your Father. You’re a citizen of heaven where the Lord Jesus Christ lives (Philippians 3:20).

(8).  Be humble. The spirit of the Kingdom of God is the spirit of humility. God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble (James 4:6; 1 Peter 5:5).

Pride, arrogance, is the spirit of the kingdom of the devil. The devil, Lucifer, was cast down from heaven because of his pride (Isaiah 14:12-15).

(9). Develop divine accountability consciousness. Live your life daily with the consciousness that you’re going to give account to God one day. This enables you to be careful what you do and say. If there isn’t going to be accountability, then we can continue to do whatever we like. But the Scripture tells us that things won’t continue like they are. Everybody is going to give account one day.

(10). Associate with Kingdom-minded Christians.Proverbs13:20 says, “He who walks with wise men will be wise, but the companion of fools will be destroyed” (New King James Version). If you’re not going to be lazy in your Kingdom work but serve the Lord enthusiastically (Romans 12:11), you can’t afford to associate with fire extinguishers! You need Christians in your company who will fan the ember of spiritual fervency in you, not one who will put out the fire – ‘fire fighters’ “As iron sharpens iron, a friend sharpens a friend” (Proverbs 27:17 New Living Translation). Roaring deep calls to roaring deep (Psalm 42:7).
