MISSION STATEMENT OF THE Ogeechee River Baptist Association: WE EXIST TO HELP OUR CHURCHES IN FULFILLING THE GREAT COMMISSION
1 CORINTHIANS 13:4-8a (NKJ): 4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; 5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never fails.
MATTHEW 22:36-40 (NKJ): 36 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?”
37 Jesus said to him, ” ‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”
ROMANS 13:8 & 10 (NKJ): 8 Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law…. 10 Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
