LOVE UP AND LOVE OUT
We see the command to love up and love out clearly defined in scripture. (Matt. 22:37-40) At FBC of Poplar Bluff we desire to fulfill the greatest commandment by promoting a healthy relationship with Christ, His church, and our community. We joyfully love up and love out because God’s love first came down to us. (1 John 4:7)
Exposed people Surrender to Jesus
Luke 14:26-27: Jesus said, “If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters – yes, even their own life – such a person cannot be my disciple. And whoever does not carry their cross and follow me cannot be my disciple.
Exposed people expose other people to Jesus
Romans 10:13-15: “for, Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? and how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”

Exposed people become Empowered to Live in Jesus
Romans 8:9-11: “You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ. But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness. And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you.”
Exposed people become Empowered to Sacrifice because of Jesus
