Believer's Purpose

The primary purpose of a believer's life is to glorify God. This occurs by reflecting the character of Christ through obedience to His Word. A true believer lives and walks in the Spirit and has crucified the flesh with its affections and lusts. [Galatians 5:24-25]

A believer engages in edifying activities that strengthen him spiritually. He is motivated by love for Christ to contribute to strengthening the church in love [Ephesians 4:16] to build a strong family unit patterned after the Word, and to be diligent in service to others.
"For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace."[Romans 8:6] "Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples. As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love. These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. This is my commandment, that ye love one another, as I have loved you." [John 15:8-12]
