我們異象:

基督活水在湧流,聖靈充滿得更新

以西結書47章先知以西結在異象中看到新的聖殿,這聖殿有水從祭壇流出,之後水流逐漸成河,河水經過的兩岸長了各類結滿果子的樹,葉子能醫病,死海變活海。教會是神的殿,從聖殿流出來的水是基督的活水,也就是代表住在基督徒裡的聖靈。主耶穌說「信我的人就如經上所說:『從他腹中要流出活水的江河來。』」,然後約翰解釋,耶穌這話是指著信他的人要受聖靈說的(約翰福音7:38-39上)。

 

我們的異象是,當活泉宣道會的弟兄姊妹按神的心意建立教會,為神築起祂所喜悅的敬拜讚美祭壇時,基督的活水便從教會湧流。教會不是指建築物,而是神所分別出來敬拜祂的群體。我們在那裡聚會敬拜,那裡就是教會,那裡的人就能經歷聖靈的大能,讓聖靈充滿,得著屬天醫治,恢復豐盛生命。聖靈充滿不只是一刻的經歷,更是人對聖靈的順服,過神喜悅的生活。因此基督活水的湧流,不只在聚會發生,更是我們日常生活的見證——每天讓聖靈更新,每天活得更像基督。

Vision:

Transforming lives through Christ's living water

In the vision in Ezekiel 47, Ezekiel saw the new temple, where water flowed out from the altar and turned into a river. Where the river reached, fruit trees grew, their leaves could be used for healing, and the Dead Sea became alive. The temple refers to the church, and the river flowing from the temple is the living water of Jesus, which is the Holy Spirit living in Christians’ hearts. That is why Jesus said, “whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them”.  John further explained that it referred to the Holy Spirit whom believers in Jesus will receive (John 7:38-39a).

 

Our vision is that when the brothers and sisters of Living Water Alliance Church build the church according to God’s will, and when we establish the altar of worship and praise, the living water of Christ will flow through the church. It is important to note that the church is not a physical building, but a group of people called to worship God. Therefore, wherever we gather to worship, we are the church, and we can experience the power of the Holy Spirit to receive healing and life. However, being filled by the Holy Spirit is not a momentary experience, but continuous obedience to the Holy Spirit, living a life pleasing to God. Therefore, the flowing of the living water of Christ does not only happen as we gather, but even more so in our daily lives as we are renewed by the Holy Spirit to be more like Christ.
