匯點

上月,當教授「認識匯點班」時,再次談及「匯點」 名稱的意義。這讓我重新思想二十年後匯點名字在今天的意義。「匯點教會」 的存在,是要成為:

1. 人與上帝的交匯點:我們盼望「匯點教會」 成為人與上帝的接觸點。對信徒來說,教會成為幫助我們遇到上帝、經歷上帝、親近上帝、認識上帝的地方。教會舉辦的課程,不論是CBI、CIOML、推介會外的,和各類門訓組別,都為著幫助信眾與神相遇,建立與主更鞏固的親密關係。對慕道者而言,「匯點教會」的佈道活動,要是要幫助他們與上帝相遇,從而成為主的門徒。

2. 會眾之間的交匯點:「匯點教會」的存在,也是讓匯點人能在這群體中學習相交、彼此守望、相互建立、實踐耶穌吩咐新的命令 。教會既不是一座建築物,更需要這群體切實遵行主內的相交生活。敬拜、學道、外展、團契、服侍等等,都是「教會生活」的一些部份。

3. 教會與世界的交匯點:我們盼望「匯點教會」成為教會以外,不論就近社區或致遙遠的世界各方的人,能透過我們的事工,認識耶穌基督的大愛。教會不應只有閉門的信徒生活,而應走出社區,服侍鄰舍,繼續建立當地的教會。而我們微小的能力,交於主的手中,一樣能成為五餅二魚的神蹟,祝福更廣更遠更多的人。「匯點教會」的海外宣教工作就是一個起步。最終,我們盼望能自行差遣宣教士,到遠方傳福音、建立教會。

4. 信徒與使命的交匯點:「匯點教會」矢志要服從基督大使命的吩咐,讓信主的信徒在教會的培育之下,認識、明白、至最後能一生承擔基督的大使命,活出標竿的人生。「匯點教會」的門訓系統,就是要建造信主者與這個使命的接觸點,學習成為主的門徒。

但願「匯點教會」能如其名,「 願他(上帝)在教會中,並在基督耶穌裏,得著榮耀,直到世世代代,永永遠遠。阿們!」(以弗所書 3:21)

你的牧者,

Word of Leung - Rev. Ting Leung

Last month during the “CBI 101” class, I talked about the meaning of the name “Crosspoint.” It made me reflect again on the meaning of the name of our church after 20 years of existence. Crosspoint Church exists to be:

1. A Crosspoint between Man and God: we hope that the “Crossooint Church” will become the point of contact between man and God. For believers, the church becomes a place to meet God, to experience God, to get close to God, and to know God. The church’s courses, whether CBI, CIOML, outside ones and our discipleship groups, are designed to help believers meet God and establish a stronger relationship with Him. For the seekers, the outreach activities of the church are intended to help them meet God and become disciples of the Lord.

2. A Crosspoint for our Members: the existence of the “Crosspoint Church” is also a crosspoint for our members to learn fellowship, support one another, edify one another, and practice the new commandment of Jesus – Love One another. The church is not a building, and it requires the community of believers to truly live a community life. Worship, evangelism, outreach, fellowship and service are all part of this “church life”.

3. A Crosspoint between the Church(Community of Believers) and the World: We hope that “Crosspoint Church” will become an opportunity for people outside the church, whether in the nearby community or in the distant world, to know the great love of Jesus Christ through our ministry. The church should not just gather behind closed doors, but go out of the community to serve neighbors and continue to plant new churches(local bodies). Though our resources are limited, yet if we put into the hands of the Lord, anything small can become a miracle of five loaves and two fish, blessing more and more people. The overseas missionary work of Crosspoint Church is a beginning. Eventually, we look forward to sending our own missionaries to share the Gospel and build churches far away.

4. A Crosspoint of Believers and our Purpose: “Crosspoint Church” is committed to obeying the command of Christ’s Great Commission, so that believers can know, understand and finally take on the Great Commission of Christ and live a purposeful life under the cultivation of the church. The discipleship training system of Crosspoint Church is to create a point of contact between believers and our life purpose on earth, and learn to become disciples of The Lord.

May Crosspoint Church live up to its name: “To him [God] be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all ages, for ever and ever. Amen.” “(Ephesians 3:21)

Your Pastor,

Ting Y Leung
