The final frontier
These are the voyages of the Starship, Enterprise
Its continuing mission
To explore strange new worlds
To seek out new life and new civilizations
To boldly go where no man has gone before."
For 178 episodes spread over seven seasons, the crew of the Enterprise carried out the objectives of their mission on Star Trek. They were on a quest to "explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, and to boldly go where no man has gone before."
Imagine how our walk with Jesus would change if we viewed our calling like this.
The ultimate being
These are the stories of the followers of Jesus
Their ongoing mission
To explore grand new truths
To seek out new life and new calling
To boldly follow where one man has gone before.
