Revere: The fear of God is what sustains a church; the lack of it turns other values unobtainable (1 Peter 2:17).
Respect: Respect for among Christ’s disciples is indispensable because it is a moral character derived from love. It is a concrete manifestation of love. We must respect one another: Believer or seeker; male or female; old folks or young lads; Chinese or non-Chinese; people who share the same views or having different thoughts, we must learn to respect each other. By practicing it, we are practically demonstrating the truth of Christ’s love (1 Peter 2:17).
Reach: The Great Commission says we are commanded to bring the gospel to all nations. The Bible clearly shows God desires men to be saved by obtaining knowledge of the truth of God (Matthew 28:19-20; 1 Timothy 2:4).
