Il Faro desires to make mature and united disciples to reach Naples, the world for Christ. This is possible by God’s grace and it is for God’s glory. The final marching orders of Jesus given to His disciples can be found in Gospels, in what is known as The Great Commission. In Matthew 28:18-20, Jesus said,
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” –Jesus Christ
The command for every committed follower of Christ is to make disciples. Go implies that, as you go, you will be engaging the world, YOUR world, with the intention to make disciples, baptizing them and teaching them to obey the commands of Christ. Il Faro believes in the vision of Christ. Jesus saw the masses/world through the man/individual, and He built/equipped the man/individual to reach the masses/world.
When God’s people engage their communities with the power of the Gospel of Christ, people in those communities will come to experience saving faith in Christ. They will be discipled in the context of a local community of believers with the goal of spiritual maturity. As they continue to mature, this cycle will continue and the result will be the multiplication of local churches in Naples.
Great Commissional Living
We believe that God’s local community of believers is to engage their local community of unbelievers, as they go, with the intention to be discipled and to make disciples.
Gone are the days when people visit your church on Sundays just because it is the thing to do. And if someone did, chances are they will not visit a protestant, evangelical church in Italy. Why? Because Italy is historically and currently a Catholic nation, and they believe we are a cult. In order for Italians to encounter the Gospel, God’s people must take it to them. This is done when God’s people seek to make disciples AS THEY ARE GOING.
We desire to see our members and holistic groups strategically engaging their communities through acts of love and service. Il Faro provides several opportunities for members to engage in missions and every member is encouraged to serve
