One common phrase you’ll hear at APC is our long-standing motto, “Out of the Ordinary into Greatness…Take the Step.”
While the enemy of our souls wants to destroy every good thing God has prepared for those who believe His promises; we believe that Jesus came to give us life and went a step further to give us abundant life.
That means that we cannot settle for the ordinary. We believe that every man, woman, young adult and child can live a life of greatness if they answer Jesus’ call to follow Him—if they take the step.
This kind of greatness is not inward-focused but upward-focused.
We don’t seek greatness for our own glory but for God to receive the glory. When people see our successes, we want them to see God’s blessings on our lives gained through and because of Him. And when they see us going through the toughest battles life can throw our way, and we can still smile and talk about how good God is—we want them to see that it is not our own resilience but God’s strength that sees us through.
This kind of greatness is also outward-focused.
One of the most powerful lessons Jesus taught His followers was that greatness is achieved through serving others. Our talents, abilities and resources are not for our own benefit, but for the blessing of those around us and those afar off.
The concept of greatness has definitely been a characteristic of the lives of many of our members. We have witnessed people making better decisions, setting higher goals, and accomplishing more in their spiritual lives, their family relationships, and their business and educational endeavours.
We have even experienced unprecedented favour with many doors being opened for us to influence the community, political, and business leaders of our city.
Join us for a Jesus experience, leave the ordinary behind, and take the step into greatness!
