The Church

We believe that loving God by serving others is as much a part of your life with Christ as a Bible study or a worship song.

We expect everyone to serve each other within the church. One of those ways is at our worship gatherings, life groups, etc.. with the talents that God gave you.

Experiences and Talents

God has a plan for you to contribute to the world around you. When you are following Him by serving others in the way that He constructed you, you are in your sweet spot in life.

    Ask God. That’s the place to start.
    Ask yourself. What have you done? What are you good at?
Spiritual Gifts

When we start to follow Christ, Scripture tells us that God gives us a spiritual gift that is used to help, and it is coded into our makeup as a new Creation in Christ.
A good place to start is a Spiritual Gifts Test. There’s nothing magical about it, but just asks some questions that help discover who God created you to be. It’s not exhaustive, it’s a place to start.
Here is a great online option.

Then TRY something.

We are okay with unlimited do-overs…if you try something, and discover that isn’t for you. No harm, no foul, our leaders are great at helping you exit gracefully and find the next thing.

The Community

But it doesn’t stop there. Inside the family of people that is the church, we honor Jesus by serving each other, but that is on the beginning.

Our generosity must extend beyond the worship gathering and into our community. Our Life Groups, Students, Kids and church as a whole, through our Love the Bay initiative, actively serve our community with the purpose of loving God, bringing honor to His name, and ultimately, to make disciples.

LOVE THE BAY

  • LOVE the Bay - students
  • First Friday Love the Bay

If you see the red “Love the Bay” shirts, they are probably helping people or helping our city. Whether it’s showing appreciation for “first responders”, cleaning up a city property or cleaning a public bus stop to make things better for those who ride every day, we are about loving God by loving others.

As in everything we do at Bay West, Love the Bay isn’t just about feeding people or creating a better city. Jesus fed the 5000, but he didn’t feed everyone and Jesus healed many, but not all. Jesus was on mission to reconnect people to the Father or make disciples. While caring for others is a part of it, the goal is making disciples, because that is where real healing starts.

It’s about loving God by loving others to help make disciples here and everywhere for the glory of God.
