From its founding, City of Refuge Church has put faith into action through serving others.
Service is central to the faith of a Christian for three primary reasons:
As an element of our worship of God. When we love our neighbors as ourselves, we make our entire lives acts of worship.
For our own spiritual formation. As we put our faith into action, we grow in our knowledge of and reliance on God.
In place of part of our witness to the world. When we serve others, we demonstrate continuity between what we say about Jesus and how we live in imitation of Him.
Service illustrates the story we tell about God. At City of Refuge, we serve through Local Ministries and Global Missions.
