Who is Engage – SDG
We are pleased that you are interested in knowing more about our organization. We are a newly formed Para church organization which will resource and provide the Church with practical answers to tough questions about God, family, marriage and contemporary issues.
Desiring that Christians will know how to respond and share in order that people might know the truth for God’s glory and the good of mankind. The sole source of the answers to these challenging questions is the Word of God.
Engage – SDG produces Bible studies accompanied by short videos of a discussion of the challenging questions or in some cases personal testimony of people who have struggled personally with a difficult question. These video conversations and testimonies are meant to serve two purposes. They will provide an understanding of the tone needed when we deal with challenging questions. They will also stimulate conversations among believers. The discussions will help believers become comfortable with the topics. Ultimately this will make them more willing to speak to the issues in the culture. This is what we mean by “Pulling the Word of God from the Margins.”
We are a membership organization of Christian churches, Christian schools, Christian ministries, and Christian homeschool cooperatives. Membership dues will be decided based on the size of your organization.
We are to engage out of obedience because we get to love God and as the Holy Spirit leads us and gives us power.
John 14:15-17, “If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you. (ESV)
We are to engage because He has commanded it.
Matthew 7:13-15, “You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet. (ESV)
Soli Deo Gloria is Latin meaning “For God’s Gloria alone.” So we are engaging in this ministry for God’s glory alone.
1 Corinthians 10:13, So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. (ESV)
Why “Pulling God’s Word from the Margins”?
It seems to me as I look at the culture we live in that God’s Word no longer plays an important role in society. It is on the margins of society. Also it was pointed out to me that many of us right application notes in the margins of our Bibles. Well we are encouraging believers to not just write those applications in the margins but to pull them out and use them in the culture.
