And all that believed were together, and had all things common;
45 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need.
46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,
47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.
John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship.
2 Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
3 For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you.
4 Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function,
5 so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.
6 We have different gifts, according to the grace given us. If a man's gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion to his[b]faith.
7 If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach;
8 if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to the needs of others, let him give generously; if it is leadership, let him govern diligently;
if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully.
9 Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.
10 Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves.
11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.
12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
13 Share with God's people who are in need. Practice hospitality.
14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.
15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. 16Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.
17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody.
18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.
19 Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: "It is mine to avenge; I will repay,"says the Lord.
20 On the contrary:
"If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head."
21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

New Hampton Christian Church is a ‘Ruth Church”. The book of Ruth shows us the revelation of the role of a “Ruth Church” in the restoration of the unsaved. Ruth worked tirelessly gleaning the field’s of Boaz. Taking what was “leftover”, she was able to provide more than enough for herself and Naomi. Using our ‘leftovers”, we can help provide more than enough for the restoration of the unsaved. By the front door, you will find a “GLEANING JAR”. We encourage you to leave your “leftover” change in the GLEANING JAR. These gleanings will then be sent to mission ministries to support their efforts in restoring the unsaved. We will target different missions each month. A “Ruth Church” shows true love and friendship to the unsaved. The “Ruth Church” will help them find restoration by praying, loving, supporting, and being a refuge for them. Restoration never comes unless there is a love for what is being restored. God’s love for the world through the sacrifice of Jesus brought restoration to mankind. Ruth resolves to give up everything to serve the One true God. Her conversion is the true conversion of the heart which will endure even to death. Ruth epitomizes everything the Church should be -- frill of kindness, compassion, humility, faithfulness, and perseverance in the face of difficulty. Ruth is proof God can take what is worthless to us and turn it into more than enough for someone else.
