About Greater St. Luke

A church located in Jackson, TN -- A Kingdom-building Torchbearer Ministry

 

2020:  The Year of Spiritual Collaboration -  “Focusing on aligning our unique gifts and resources for God's Divine Purpose.”
 
Hebrews 10:24-25 (NIV) – “And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the day drawing near.”

Our Mission
“To let our light shine before men, that they may see our good works and glorify our Father who is in Heaven.  (Paraphrased) Matthew 5:15
 
Our Vision
To equip and send forth Christ-centered, Kingdom-building Torchbearers whose flame of the Holy Spirit leads the lost sheep to The Shepherd through Exhortation, Edification & Evangelism.”
 
Who we are...
The Greater St. Luke Family don’t just call ourselves members—“We are Torchbearers!”  We believe in letting our light shine that has been kindled by our Holy Ghost experience.  We want to inspire others to see what a wonderful change there is in our lives when now that we have surrendered to Him who can save us.  The light of change in our lives is the beacon that we hope will lead others to seek our Lord and Savior experience that wonderful life-changing moment.
 
  • We carry our light so that other can see the edification of the Holy Spirit and the Manifestation of his indwelling in us. 
  • We accept those who seek Him without prejudice to the outward appearance or circumstance.  
  • We place our priority on salvation through the proclaiming the Word of God to the lost.
  • We acknowledge the five-fold ministry wherein each of us has a purposeful life through which our Heavenly Father desires to use us.
  • We are a connectional church through (a) The Triune God (b) Jesus; and (c) the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.
  • We offer willingly and obediently unto God our first fruits of tithes, offerings, times, gifts, and services setting the example of good stewardship.

Through Biblical teachings by Pastor Hall, we are compelled to not just do church work but do the work of the church.   Through that work, we witness the valuable transformation from lost to saved, from despair to hope, and from loneliness to being part of the wonderful family of God and church.

 
Again, we thank you for choosing us for your worship experience.

I want change in my life.  I want to turn my life around.  How can I do that?
  • Recognize and acknowledge your sins:  This is the first great step towards becoming a Christian.  When one recognizes that that the things that they have done are not pleasing in the sight of God, they are recognizing sin.  Once sin is recognized, it becomes apparent that sin is not Godly thus disobedience to to God.
  • Repent for your sins:  Once you have acknowedged that you have sinned, it's time to make all efforts to not repeat your old actions.  It's time to put away those old habits of sin and adopt a path of living so as to not continue to do those things that you know are not pleasing to God thus doing hard to others as well as yourself.  When you do this, you are repenting by turning away from sin so that you may live the way God has ordained for us to live.  What a joy to know your life has changed because of your decision to become a part of the Christian faith.  We will not tell you that it's going to be easy because it won't.  But this is where you build faith--faith in God to give your strength to fight the urge to go back to your old ways.
  • Accept Jesus Christ, the Son of God, as your Lord and Savior:  Jesus was born into this world, suffered the harshness of man, and died upon the cross.  He did all this so that our lives would change.  He sacrificed His Life so that we might have a chance for salvation.  He dies upon that Old Rugged Cross for the forgiveness of our sins.  When you believe in Jesus Christ and believe that His Purpose on this earth was to give us a chance at a better way of living, you've made that all important move towards becoming a Christian.  But it doesn't stop there.  Your life change can become a living testimony for others.  Through the sharing of your life change through witnessing to others, you now become an instrument through which God uses you to bring others to Christ.
  • Get involved in a faith-based ministry:  We encourage you to become involved in a faith-based ministry where you are surrounded by praying, loving, believing, God-fearing, people.  We invite you to begin your faith walk by joing us on Wednesdays at Bible Study and share in God teaching.  When you join a faith-based community, you become a part of a church that will embrace you, be patient with you, won't judge your, and will encourage you as you strengthen your faith.

May God bless you.  We look forward to having you in our presence.
