Why RE/ACT?

RE/ACT is the name we have given to our missions emphasis. One of the expressions of our purpose in Joining God in His work in Transforming Lives is connecting with our world through service. Our missions emphasis here at Scotts Hill is grounded in our understanding of the Gospel “as the power of God to save the lost” (Rom. 1:16b); and the responsibility of the Church to proclaim the message of repentance (Matt. 28:18); and to participate in loving responses to the hurting, hungry and helpless (Matt 25:31-46).

"For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many"

The word RE/ACT heavily resounds with tones that emphasize giving, which is directly related to missional living. Loving responses to lostness and injustice in the world come at a price. They call for service and sacrifice (Jn. 3:16; Mk 10:45). Those who are being transformed by the Gospel come to realize this. So, we encourage personal and corporate development in the stewardship of finances, time, talents and gifts.

We hold our RE/ACT banner high because we understand that the relevancy of the witness of the Gospel we proclaim will be seen as we give ourselves to making room for others (Matt.11:28; 12:19-21).  Jesus gave himself to bring the lost, hurting and needy to the Father (Eph. 2:16-18).  One aspect of making disciples (Matt. 28:19) is to see those who are being transformed grow in their awareness of the states of lostness and injustice in the world. Our RE/ACT emphasis includes elevating this awareness and encouraging loving responses, which includes praying for the lost and hurting in the world, praying for those who are serving in the world (especially those with whom we partner) and praying for men and women to be called from our fellowship to participate in these responses (Matt. 9:38).

As already mentioned, part of our RE/ACT emphasis is raising awareness of the states of lostness and injustice in the world with the intent being toward faithful Gospel expressions. This will always require movement - walking across the street to a neighbor’s house, taking whatever is needed to another part of town, crossing cultural barriers or traveling to another part of the world (Matt. 28:18-20). We understand that “moving toward the need” is a reoccurring biblical theme and representative of God’s loving and merciful acts toward humanity (Gen. 3:8-9; 12:1-11; Ex. 3:7-12; Matt. 1:18-23; Jn. 10:10b; Lk. 15:20; Matt 28:18-20; Acts 1:8). We regularly promote RE/ACT opportunities from feeding the homeless to planting Gospel centered churches among unreached people groups.
