Founded on the gospel a Missional Community is a Family of Servant Missionaries sent by God to make disciples that makes disciples.
WHAT IS A MISSIONAL COMMUNITY (MC)?
A missional community is much more than a weekly event. MCs gather together at different times throughout the week to fulfill Jesus' mission of being disciples who make disciples. Together we learn how to worship and submit to Jesus in all of life by learning how to love one another as family, worship Jesus as servants who serve others, and share the good news of Jesus Christ as his sent missionaries.
Every missional community identifies a group of people whom they believe God is sending them to love, serve, and share Jesus with. It could be a neighborhood, an existing ministry in the city or network of relationships. We want to see every aspect of our city blessed by God's people: business, arts, education, sports, recreation, and social services.
MC’s are smaller groups of people that worship and submit to Jesus together in all of life by learning to love one another as family, serve a specific mission (like a neighborhood, an affinity group, or other contexts in our community) and be a witness to the good news of Jesus Christ in our city. This is where real life happens, as together we seek to believe and live out the good news in the normalcy of daily life.
As Missional Communities grow, they multiply into more gospel communities living on mission—each displaying and declaring the satisfying, transforming Good News of Jesus.
We desire to invite others into our working, playing, eating, and living so that they can see and hear the good of Jesus at work in our lives.
We desire to make disciples of Jesus TOGETHER in gospel community.
We desire to see our city transformed into the likeness of Jesus Christ as an outpouring of our lives lived in community and on mission .
