Purpose of Local Outreach and Evangelism
The Local Outreach and Evangelism Ministry exists to further the mission of IPC through teaching, leading, and encouraging members to participate in outreach and evangelism both within and outside our community alongside our ministry partners.
The four abiding principles of our Local Outreach and Evangelism are:
- Loving our Place
- Doing Justice
- Preaching Grace
- Practicing Hospitality
"Mercy Ministry" is usually defined along the lines of meeting felt needs through deeds. Jesus' ministry, which was full of grace and truth, included both word and deed. At IPC, we are seeking to follow Jesus, who desires mercy and not sacrifice. Our Lord is concerned for his people to know His mercy and show His mercy. Please consider how you could be involved in showing mercy.
Here is a list of the "Mercy Ministries" in the Memphis area that we support (alphabetically):
