Who we are

Our Nature and Purpose

We are an ecumenical charismatic Christian community of disciples on mission.  We have heard the call of God, a call to serve him and his people in a particular way in this time -- a time of trial and challenge for the Christian people, a time when he is pouring out his Spirit to renew, restore, and unify his people.  In response to a particular call of God, we have freely committed ourselves to others who have been called in this same way. 

 

We Are:

  1.  Ecumenical: members of churches from different traditions and denominations; our community is not a church.

  2.  Charismatic: a people of praise and prayer, renewed by the word and power of the Holy Spirit, and open to the gifts of the Spirit.

  3.  Christian: adhering to the truth of the Scriptures as traditionally interpreted in the Apostles' and Nicene Creeds.

  4.  Community: brothers and sisters living a common way of life together.

  5.  Disciples: with a common mission, making ourselves and our resources available for mission.

  6.  On Mission: a body of Christians witnessing to and proclaiming the word of God in this age of spiritual warfare.

In short, we live out our Christian commitment in a particular manner, united by a covenant, a common way of life, and dedication to a common purpose and mission.  The spirit of our community is particularly well expressed by these texts from Scripture: Matthew 22:36-40John 17:20-21Mark 16:15.
