The Power of "1"
By Pastor Dennis Felder
In 2019, USBC is launching The Power of “1”.
The number “1” is key to setting and accomplishing strategic goals for the church in this coming year.
The number “1” in the Bible is very significant.
This stand-alone number has two unique characteristics in the Bible.
First, the number “1” is a testimony to the uniqueness of God and the Christian life.
In Ephesians 4:4-6 it reads, “There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
Second, the number “1” is a vivid description of the importance and value of Christian unity.
In 1 Corinthians 12:12 it says, “Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ.

Therefore, the goals that our church will set for 2019 will begin with the number “1”.
In addition, we as a church body will become one in spirit and service to accomplish such goals. List below is the structure for The Power of “1”.

Structure/Goals for The Power of “1”
  • 1 = USBC will have at least one baptism in 2019.
  • 10 = USBC will add at least 10 new people who will be active participants
  • in 2019.
  • 100 = USBC will have at least 100 new people visit our church in 2019.
  • 1000 = USBC will have at least 1000 new contacts in 2019.
As we reflect upon the goals listed above, it is important to note that these goals range from easy to challenging.
However, each one can be accomplished if we give our best to the Lord. Below is listed a simple, but effective approach for how we can meet these worthy goals.
How to Accomplish These Goals
Through prayer.
Through unity.
Through service.
Through sharing.
Through commitment.
Through faith.
Through fellowship.
Through inclusion.
Through planning.
Through dreaming God’s dream.

For The Power of “1” to become meaningful, real, and effective, each one of us must do our part.
Our Ministry Teams will work in concert to help achieve these goals.
When such ministry activities are being planned, it is imperative that the Ministry Teams keep in mind the goals that are laid out in The Power of “1”.
