The Gospel According to Mark – The Whole Story
Time to jumpstart your relationship with the Lord. Jesus invites each of us into a deeper, more profound relationship with him. It is our source of hope and encouragement. And where better to encounter Jesus than in His Word. We invite you to explore the Gospel according to Mark, and in it we’ll move into this deeper relationship with Christ, our one true source of purpose, truth and love.
Come, you are welcome to step into a more profound understanding and experience of Jesus’ deep and abiding love for you. Over the next few weeks, we will study the Gospel according to Mark in its entirety, and discover how the narrative expresses theology, what we believe and why. We will see how our faith is relevant and alive today- and what that means to us in as we begin this new year. Like any good narrative, the Gospel according to Mark pulls the reader in, inviting us into the story, so that we too are touched, healed and emboldened by an encounter with Jesus. As we read, and discover for ourselves who Jesus is, we can answer his call to, “come after me”.
“This is the time of fulfillment.
The kingdom of God is at hand.
Repent, and believe in the Gospel.”
Jesus’ call moves beyond a baptism of repentance and forgiveness, into an invitation into relationship with him and faith in his good news. He is the one to follow.
Encounter hope and encouragement. Respond to Jesus’ invitation into relationship.
