WHAT IS  APTUS

How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? 

Romans 10: 14-15a

 

We are called to make disciples, to introduce the world to the person of Jesus. But, as Paul says in Romans, how will they call on Jesus if they have not heard the gospel message. And how will someone share the gospel message if they have not been S E N T

 

We, the Church, are about preaching the gospel so more people can C A L L  O N  H I M. But, are there enough believers living out their call and preaching the gospel so all can know Him? 

 

Aptus exists to equip you to serve in Y O U R calling. Whether you are called to serve as a nursery worker loving infants with the love of Christ, a camera operator showing the gospel to the online world or a pastor shepherding God’s people, Aptus is here to give you the tools you need!
