As followers of Jesus Christ, the Bible calls us to a dedication to excellence (Colossians 3:23-24). The reason for this is that we are serving the Lord Himself in every thing that we do, from the smallest task to the largest project.
However, this biblical principle also has enormous application to McLean Bible Church if we are serious about achieving our stated mission
Living in Washington, DC, is like being in constant air combat: there are no prizes for second place! When secular people, who are accustomed to this level of excellence in every area of their everyday lives, walk into a church setting and see mediocrity and sloppiness, they immediately judge our “product” to be inferior.
The truth is – we have the best “product” in the history of the universe: a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. In presenting this “product” to people, nothing less than our absolute best effort and performance is acceptable.
It is this kind of dedication to excellence in all that we do that lies at the very heart of the ministry of McLean Bible Church.
