Our Purpose is to define authentic manhood. In our society, being a man is confusing. There are a number of definitions according to the world’s standards. We will look at the Biblical call to be a real man as one who rejects passivity, accepts responsibility, leads courageously and invests in eternity.
The purpose of our Men’s Ministry is expressed in Colossians 1:28
|“That we may present every man complete in Christ.”|
What does it mean to be “complete in Christ” as a man?
To be complete in Christ means that we are happy in being a man! We provide for our families. We provide for our family, fight for righteousness sake, have close male friends that encourage us and are faithful to our wife (or keeping ourselves sexually pure before marriage).
In Proverbs 27:17 we are told, “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” Strong men build up other strong men.
