An apprentice of Jesus seeks to live out His model of the kingdom of God in servanthood while rejecting arrogance, manipulation, power and control as ways of getting ahead.  The disciple is to be a humble servant.  In repentance we renounce our old ways of living.  We seek to be in the world in all the ways He was in the world.  We are here to be salt and light. We are here to show by our manner of living what the Kingdom of God looks like.

 “You are the salt of the earth; but if salt has lost its taste, how can its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything, but is thrown out and trampled under foot.” Matthew 5:13 (NRSV)
