Embrace the Kingdom of God. Engage the world.
Our vision is only possible through embracing the kingdom of God and engaging the world around us. We believe this a great tension that we live in, that we believe the kingdom of God is breaking into a broken and hurting world. We hold tightly to the things of God and yet we want to see love, peace and reconciliation come to the world. Therefore, we engage. We live in our city, we do life with others and we join in what we see God already doing around us.
Love God. Love others. Love our City.
We believe we are called to love God because He first loved us. This is foundational to loving others and our city. It is out of the deep belief that we are loved by the Creator, Maker of heaven and earth, that we do everything else.
15 Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. 16 So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him…... 19 We love because he first loved us. -I John 4:15-19
We believe that people who are loved by God and know him, will want to love the people around them. We are God’s ambassadors, sent to bring His love and peace to those around us.
20 If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. 21 And this commandment we have from him: whoever loves God must also love his brother. - I John 4:19-20
LOVE OUR CITY
We are passionate about the city we live in and we want to take the love of Jesus outside our four walls and into the community around us. This is why you will often see us at community events, supporting other locals organizations or simply doing life in our city of Greeley, CO.
And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” -Revelation 21:5
