Worship, Discipleship, Fellowship, Ministry & Evangelism; These are the expression, response and discipline of a person who is NOT working so they can go to Heaven.  BUT the fruit of a Christian whose eternal destiny of Heaven is secured by Jesus Christ.   Which are you?

Christians respond to Christ because they know they are going to Heaven.
