To reach and influence the world by building a large church centered on Christ and based on the Bible, changing the mentality and empowering people to lead and impact in every sphere of life.
The Church that I see is a Church of influence. A Church so large in size that the city and the nation cannot ignore it. A church that grows so fast that buildings struggle to contain the increase.
I see a Church whose sincere praise and worship touches the sky and changes the earth; Adoration that influences the praises of people throughout the earth, exalting Christ with powerful songs of faith and hope.
I see a Church whose altars are constantly filled with repentant sinners who respond to Christ’s call to salvation.
Yes, the Church I see depends so much on the Holy Spirit that nothing will stop or oppose it; a Church whose people are unified, praying and filled with the Spirit of God.
The Church I see has a message so clear that lives change forever and the potential is fulfilled through the power of His Word; a message transmitted to the peoples of the earth through their television screens.
I see a Church so compassionate that people are drawn from impossible situations to a circle of loving and friendly hope, where the answers are found and acceptance is given.
I see a people so interested in the Kingdom that they will count whatever the cost and pay the price for the revival to drag this land.
The Church I see is a Church so committed to the formation, training and empowerment of a generation of leaders to reap the harvest of the final time that all their ministries are consumed with this goal.
I see a Church whose head is Jesus, whose help is the Holy Spirit and whose focus is the Great Commission.
YES, THE CHURCH I SEE COULD BE OUR CHURCH – H2O CHURCH.
The Jesus Model
In our H2O church we have a passion; reach people away from Jesus and see them become disciples of Him.
But how to do it? If you were one of Jesus’ twelve disciples, how would you do it? The way Jesus did, of course. That is why in our church we have been concerned with studying the development of Jesus’ ministry through the Gospels. The Lord made more disciples than others because he applied the most appropriate model. Now we can replicate His model for discipling and caring for those who have entrusted us.
How did Jesus do it?
1. He had compassion for the crowds. (Won)
▪ Jesus had compassion for the multitudes that followed him (Mt. 9: 35-37).
▪ Jesus never thought of a few, always many, so he trained twelve to care for the crowds.
▪ To have compassion for the crowds we need to understand that every person has a soul that must be won, from the one who lives under the bridge to the one who built the bridge. Everyone must earn eternal life.
▪ Jesus did it by preaching in the fields and making groups in the houses, these groups are called in our church H2Groups.
2. He manifested His Power. (Consolidated)
▪ Jesus filled the needs of people by manifesting their healer and liberator.
▪ The purpose of power is for people to be released, affirmed, and believe in the Lord. (Mr 1.27-45, Mr 2 1-12, Jn 2.23, Jn 6.2)
▪ In our church we consolidate those who have been won through 3 steps:
1. The NPT: We give you the manual “I Was Born To Succeed” and we visited their homes on the m
2. Assignment to the Group: In order for the person to be effectively cared for, immediately after the conversion he must be assigned to a group where he can share with other believers.
3. The LBS: We teach Liberation, Blessing, and Healing, through three different classes.
4. The Peniel: We minister to you deeply in our spiritual retreat where the power of God is manifested through signs, healing, deliverance, and baptism in the Holy Spirit.
5. Water Baptism. During one of the services in our church we are baptized in water celebrating his transformation as Jesus commanded us.
3. He chose twelve people. (Disciple) ▪ He called those He wanted. He chose his disciples, not his disciples. (Mt 9:35 to 10: 4)
▪ He chose with purpose, for the objective to be achieved (taking care of the crowds).
▪ Established a certain number of workers: the 12.
▪ Discipling is not indoctrinating, it is forming people. He called them to be made «fishers of men.»
▪ Jesus disciple whom he wanted to work, not just the one who wanted to hear or learn. To be a disciple is to be a worker of the Lord and a collaborator in the vision of God.
▪ In H2O discipleship as he did in Jesus, through a training system called “Agents of Peace”. This is given by a leader once a week from home to people who are being discipled. This process takes three months (12 lessons of 45 minutes).
4. He sent them to do the same. (Shipping)
▪ After having discipled them, he gave them authority over all the strength of the enemy and sent them two by two to do the same (win, consolidate, disciple, and send others). (Luke 10:19)
▪ They were so effective that they returned with 72 trained disciples (12 disciples for every 6 couples Jesus sent) whom Jesus sent in the same way. (Luke 10.1-2)
▪ In H2o we use a special graduation called “Launching” in which we give the disciples authority to be sent and do in the lives of others what God did in them through their leaders.
Dr. Dionny Baez
Jesus said that the harvest is much, and that the workers are few. He said to ask the Lord to send more workers. The harvest will always bring more harvest, which will require more workers. What God seeks and establishes are people willing to work in the work of the Kingdom (The harvest). Every worker with the right vision will raise the harvest, aware that you have to win, consolidate, disciple and send more workers. Whenever harvesting is done, more workers should be made, who will bring more harvest. You are the worker that God will use to transform this city one disciple at a time.
