1. Scripture instructs us to repay debt.
Read Proverbs 22:7 and Romans 13:8.
2. 8.2% of our 2017 budget is going to our debt payments.
That is $115,894.00 that could be going towards Kingdom Work at Valley View, in Dallas, and around the world.
$115,894.00 could cover the cost of sponsoring several more missionaries or missions organizations around the world. It could pay for new (or better) transportation for our Outreach ministries. It could go towards bigger events for our local community, more intensive training for our volunteers, and more.
But right now, it's not; it's going towards debt. It is time for that to change.
3. This season presents a fresh opportunity for spiritual growth!
For months God has been asking us to take Next Steps towards following Jesus together.
We believe this campaign can be leveraged to give greater clarity on our Vision to Love Dallas, Live Free and Lead Others, and it can give a unique opportunity to engage in our Mission, to be followers of Jesus who daily love God and the people in our community and world.
If you don't currently have a ministry where you are regularly serving, committing your time and energy to follow the future God is planning for Valley View and the surrounding area, now is the time to sign up!
For this reason I bow my knees before the Father,
from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name,
that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man,
so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love,
may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth,
and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.
Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us,
to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever.
