VISITATING

Visiting

Justification

"The Lord said to the servant, 'Go in the ways and the fences, and force them to come in, that my house may be filled'" (Luke 14:23).

  1. Churches always encounter the problem that exponents of church-building calls the "narrow gate" and the "wide gate." This means that adding souls to the church costs and gives a lot of work so that they can enter the "narrow gate."
  2. However, the exodus becomes easy and without notice. Through the "wide gate" they run off and disappear forever and no one knows because they are no longer in the congregation. The Visitation Section is focused on better serving the individual needs of each member and visitor to the church. Whether these spiritual or emotional, imitating with them the principle of the Lord Jesus in his visit with his friends: Mary, Martha, Lazarus, because we believe that in the visitation, is taught, strengthened and encouraged people. It also allows for maintaining and retaining members in the congregation.
  3. The Visitation Section not only allows quantitative growth to reach many, but also quantitative, since the visitation allows to strengthen in the faith to the new ones and to grow spiritually.
