Influence & Impact Families

The vision of Influence and Impact Families was given to Pastor Ferguson in 2011 and derived from Matthew 28:18-19, which states the following:

  • 18. And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
  • 19. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

According to the Webster dictionary, influence is the power to affect others and impact is the power to move feelings and influence thinking.

When Jesus was speaking in verse 18 and 19, he was talking to the disciples on the mountain teaching of their duties. As Pastors, Christians and other believers and followers of Jesus, it is not only our duty, but our responsibility to go out and reach the nation by teaching and spreading the word of the Lord. This is the same mission Jesus expected the disciples to carry out during the early times.

With this vision, our goal is to go out to seek, find and teach as many families as we can in the year of 2011 about Jesus so they can be baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
