EVERYONE IS WELCOME
At Landmark, we want you to know that everyone is welcome. We do not have formal membership but understand the value of that process. At Landmark Church, our approach focuses on what we call “active attenders.” We understand that life can make consistent attendance difficult for some. Yet, at the same time we encourage faithful church attendance because of the spiritual benefit for believers. Therefore, we believe that as you choose to attend Landmark and contribute to the church with your time, talents and resources, you become an active attender. Faithfulness in our time, talents and resources brings honor to the Lord, encouragement to us individually and strength to His church corporately. We want you to know that your faithfulness is important.
The Word of God speaks of faithfulness in some specific areas that we embrace at Landmark.
-We embrace the principle of being faithful in our attendance.
Our Sunday morning worship service is the largest event during the week at Landmark and we value our corporate worship time together. Being faithful to this gathering will help us in the ongoing process of becoming "connected" or "tied-in," which all of us need at some level. We learn of connecting opportunities that are available throughout the week. We pray together and worship together because corporate worship is an important component to our spiritual growth. Our faithfulness to corporate worship strengthens us and encourages others.
-We embrace the principle of being faithful in our giving.
We believe and promote the biblical principle of tithing, honoring God in the area of “first things.” To us, this means that we faithfully and willingly give in the areas of our time, talents and resources. We believe that God has blessed our life with these things and consider it an honor and privilege to give back to God a portion of that blessing. Through our giving, we are obeying the Word of God and expanding His Kingdom.
-We embrace the principle of being faithful to the communities that we influence.
Our community is important to us. We value our city and see ourselves as a productive and beneficial element in its success. As a result, you will hear of opportunities that encourage involvement in both the civic community and the church community. We encourage and actively pursue relationships with other bible-believing churches in our area and pray for their congregations and their leadership, understanding that we are all united as the Body of Christ. It is our privilege also to pray for the leadership of our city, state and nation. This, we know, is scriptural and pleasing to the Lord.
-We embrace the principle of being faithful to a world-wide calling.
Recognizing the mandate of Jesus Christ to go into all the world and make disciples, we actively support missionary efforts all across the world with our financial and spiritual support. We understand that the cause of Christ is bigger than ourselves and bigger than Landmark. Therefore, we choose to partner with those who have answered the call to serve in the area of foreign missions. Because of our commitment to missions, we know that our prayers and financial efforts are helping spread the gospel, making disciples all over the world. In this way, we can honestly say, and rejoice in the fact, that we are part of something bigger than ourselves.
