When God created the church he wasn’t creating another social club. He was building a community of people, transformed by grace, to send out on mission. At the center of the church stands the Cross of Jesus, which draws us together in unity and propels us out into the world to Multiply Gospel Communities that Love God, Love People, and Push Back Darkness.
The church is to be a launchpad for God’s mission to reconcile, redeem, and restore people through Jesus. Josh Kouri unpacks what that means here.
We push back darkness as we proclaim Jesus and his Gospel, which is the job of EVERY believer. Andrew Burkhart unpacks what that means.
Our ‘love’ is often Sentimental, Situational, & Selfish. God’s love is Manifest, it Pursues, & it’s deeply Sacrificial, and we have been called to love others as we’ve been loved by God.
God’s pursuit of us should drive us to love him with everything we have.
What are the distinguishing marks of a multiplying Gospel community? Acts 2 helps us answer that question, as we begin our new series ‘Together on Mission.’
