|Preaching the Gospel is the Key to everything else. Without Jesus and His Blood and saving love, nothing else matters. Everything else we do would collapse to dust if the Shout of our King weren't in us.|
We share what we have with anyone who wants it, disciple them in our King's commands, and offer them the same rights, position, authority, power, and opportunity God gave us. Gathering admirers or club members is not the point: introducing people to the King is the point.
Some people have the hunger to preach to crowds. For some people, more personal one-on-one interaction works better. Any approach that will spread the Gospel is used.
We train you in healing the sick (you didn't know that was real? What? Seriously...), casting out demons without making a scene (yes, Virginia, there really is a Satan), ministering emotional healing in the Spirit, prophecy, all the fun things that Christians are called to do. Then...you go do it.
In Squadrons of multiple ships, Sea Lions and Cadets go to an area, learn the language if necessary, and begin spreading the Word. 4th Fleet often works in conjunction with other Fleets, simply because those Fleets create so much public contact by their work.
When our preachers get busted for preaching the Gospel, we have an entire Fleet whose sole function is to extract Christians in bad situations. Click the 9th Fleet link to the left for more info on that Fleet.
Once we've completed our mission in a given area, we leave. Sometimes we leave to go back to the Council, sometimes we leave to go to our next destination, but we leave. Remember, Christ said, "Go, all of you, into ALL the world..." He clearly was commanding on-going movement, intermittent though it may be, and emotionally difficult though it may be.
We take our King's commands seriously. We go.
