Message from Pastor Roger Dallman
WHY WOULD ANYONE WANT TO COME TO ALL SAINTS LUTHERAN CHURCH?
One person might say: I don’t know!
Another comment might be: Are they any different than any other denominational church in the Seattle Area or, what makes this church stand out? What sets this church apart?
What do we have to give to people that will lift them up in the Lord’s way?
Personally, I would like to think that people would come to All Saints for real and measurable reasons rather than they are fulfilling a duty in their head or they are loyal to the Lutheran Church‐Missouri Synod.
COME TO SEEK: SEEK SPIRITUAL REFRESHMENT!
All people have a spiritual table called a soul. They are hungry, thirsty and starving for spiritual
refreshment even if they cannot acknowledge that. Unfortunately, this means that they are not and cannot be whole in life and toward God. And, they seek spiritual refreshment in all the wrong places. Or,they seek spiritual refreshment doing their own search on line, experimenting with junk, and mixing their personal toxic poisons. For people who are seeking spiritual refreshment they are more than welcome to come to All Saints,where we want to hand you true, genuine, honest and real spiritual refreshment that lasts forever. After all, the Lord God wants us to be conveyers on His behalf of living waters that last forever. We want and intend to be a place to worship the true Lord God in spirit and truth. Come to worship the Lord with us!
COME TO FAITH IN JESUS, THE CHRIST, AND THE SON OF THE ONE TRUE GOD!
The way that people come to faith is that God comes to them. And with the Holy Spirit and the word of God the callousness of life on their heart break down and open them to be able to receive the Lord within They might not know this but they can actually be poured into by God, the Holy Spirit with the Word of God speaking to their hearts like Living Waters. And then they will want to be baptized by the waters of Baptism. And then they will want to join a fellowship of faith like All Saints.
COME TO GROW TOWARD HAVING A MISSION IN LIFE!
God moves those who have faith and also want to follow Him to join Him in a mission that changes others people’s lives.Even when a person joins a team and serves an already established mission and serve the needs, for example the people living in the barrios in Mexico, their lives are changed and their Pastors’ in Mexico are refreshed and enthused because we served them on a mission!
COME TO GROW TOWARD HAVING A MINISTRY WITH THE LORD!
Spiritual growth of a person leads to mission. Spiritual growth leads to a call from the Lord
to serve the Lord in a designated category called ministry. This can be a special ministry for developmentally disabled children for example. Perhaps it could be a part‐time ministry funded by a regular day job. And of course it could be full time. Either way, believers and followers of the Lord can work where God is working. Is that what would lead you to come or continue to come to All Saints?
We hope so.
Peace and Joy in the Lord from the people of All Saints!
