In 2023 We Are “Pursuing Change That Sets Free”
Every change that has been assigned to the children of God is to redirect our attention to our God and His plan and purpose for our lives. God’s change is quite different from the change that the worlds suggest. God uses the words “Humble," “Turn," and “Seek” in 2 Chronicles 7:14, all speak to the process of change. Those willing to change for our Lord must realize that they are apart of what the bible will call a remnant (a minority) amount the world. Let’s allow the scripture to speak for itself:
Romans 12:1-2 - I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
2 Chronicles 7:14 - If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
Ezekiel 36:26 - A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
Daniel 2:21 - And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:
2 Corinthians 5:17 - Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
2 Corinthians 3:18 - But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

A Blessing To Give
When God brought His people out of slavery in Egypt and into Canaan, He gave them a rich and fertile land. Of all that they produced on this good land, God required that they give the first tenth to Him. This was called "the tithe." The word "tithe" means "the tenth."
The purpose of the tithe was to remind the people of God's ownership of all things and to teach them to put God first in their lives. God is exceedingly generous. He allowed them to keep nine-tenths of all that they produced, but the tithe, or first tenth, belonged to Him. The Bible says, "All the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land, or of the fruit of the tree, is the Lord's; it is holy unto the Lord." Leviticus 27:30
In addition to their tithes, God's people gave free-will offerings. The tithes and offerings were given to the priests of God. This was the means by which they lived since they had no land of their own. God's people were told to bring their tithes and offerings when they came to worship God. God said, "…they shall not appear before the Lord empty-handed. Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the Lord your God which He has given you." Deuteronomy 16:16-17 (NKJV)
God was teaching His people to give. When they gave freely to God, God gave them abundant crops. The Bible says, "Honor the Lord with your possessions, and with the firstfruits of all your increase; So your barns will be filled with plenty…" Proverbs 3:9-10
First Union Missionary Baptist Church is a bible based ministry nestled in the heart of the Chicago South Suburbs. Our mission is to guide lost souls to Jesus while remaining a beacon of light and hope to the community. In 2017 we pursued and continue this mission by putting “Love in Action as Our New Normal.” We pour out our love towards you on purpose. We pray that you feel the love as you encounter the First Union Family. It is our hope and desire that your virtual experience ministers to you to the point that you would consider joining with us by accepting Jesus as you Lord and Savior; partnering with our ministry, uniting with our family of faith, donating to our ministry endeavors and/or joining with us in one of our live services.
Our mindset is to carry out the directives charged to us in the bible. Ministry and Ministry leaders at First Union are seen as servants. We find that 1 Peter 5:1-4 is one of many scriptures that order each ministry worker to maintain a Spirit of excellence and a way of servant-hood:
1 Peter 5:1 "The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed: 2 Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; 3 Neither as being lords over God's heritage, but being examples to the flock. 4 And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away."
WE NEED YOU TO BECOME A PART OF US AND HELP US TO SPREAD THE GOSPEL THROUGH OUR LOVE AND FAITH
Romans 1:16 - For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
