Jesus is our Hope.

More than political posturing or cleaver PR campaigns, there is one hope and one hope only for our nation and our world: Jesus. In Him we find the rescue we so desperately need and then the opportunity to be part of His rescue team, following Him “in the reconciliation of all things.” The story of the Church is the story of a people who have been transformed by Jesus and who then transformed the world through the power of the Holy Spirit. Both the power of our witness and the effectiveness of our ministry are driven by the depth to which we are transformed by God. (John 14:6, Romans 12:1-2)

Every man, woman and child in America needs access to this Hope.
Regardless of race, ethnicity, education level or socioeconomic status, every single person matters to God. We haven’t found that Gospel relevancy is the issue. It’s Gospel access. There are people who have never heard or experienced the transforming power of the Gospel and we need to mobilize the Church into every crack and crevice of society so that all may have multiple Gospel opportunities. (John 3:16, 2 Peter 3:9, 1 Timothy 2:3-4, Romans 10:11-13, Luke 15:3-10)

God calls His people to pursue His mission together.  
No one church has the capability of providing this kind of Gospel access. Moreover, when God looks at a city or town, He does not see many different churches, but one Church, gathering in their various expressions. The Great Commission isn’t something Jesus spoke whimsically about, but an actual mission objective. And so when we think about unity, it isn’t a nicety but a necessity. Making disciples where we live, work and play will take all of God’s people in their various expressions working together as Jesus leads. (Matthew 28:18-20, John 17)
