All who are led by God’s Spirit are God’s sons and daughters. 15 You didn’t receive a spirit of slavery to lead you back again into fear, but you received a Spirit that shows you are adopted as his children. With this Spirit, we cry, “ Abba, Father. ” 16 The same Spirit agrees with our spirit, that we are God’s children. 17 But if we are children, we are also heirs. We are God’s heirs and fellow heirs with Christ, if we really suffer with him so that we can also be glorified with him.
Change the World 2012 (May 19-20) is about coming together in community and across the denomination to personify the love of Christ. It is about building community locally and fighting malaria globally.
A Rethink Church annual event since 2010, Change the World has impacted thousands of lives worldwide. It is based on a book of the same name by Rev. Mike Slaughter who challenges churches of every size to "to be a mission outpost, living out Christ’s ideals in today’s world."
