We desire to truly live as people who have been set free and rescued into the Kingdom of God! Living as the church who has been transformed and finds her significance in Jesus will bring restoration to people around her. As each of us is living out this mission at Restoration, we will join with all other Christians around the world to eventually bring glory to Jesus everywhere.

Being Faithful in the Suspended Seasons

James encouraged us to be faithful in the “suspended seasons” and to stand and fight for the unity of our local church by honoring one another.

When we do this our local church becomes dangerously effective for the Kingdom.

This great city is about get wrecked even more, through the Lusks, by the ever advancing Kingdom of God!

Abraham: Friend of God - Genesis 13

Let us follow Abraham’s example of living a generous lifestyle for God. He trusted in God’s promise, His provision, and His generosity. This revelation allowed Abraham to have an open-handed attitude with Lot because he trusted in the Lord, and not in the outcome of Lot’s decision.

Vision & Values- Authentic Biblical Community

Let’s get back to God’s original design and function of the local church! His way is always perfect and better than our ways. It is the same with His original intention for the church (Eph 3:10) as it transcends culture, generations, and geography. God’s design for His church is always perfect and better than any model man can come up with in building His church (Matt 16:18).

Vision & Values- Advancing The Kingdom

One of the values at Restoration is to advance His Kingdom. We believe this “value” is also applicable to all Christians everywhere as it is the “commission” from our King to all followers of Christ. The most effective, and impactful, way is to be transparent to those around us at all times while constantly making Jesus the focus and center of our lives. This can, and should, be done through the various people we interact with on a regular basis.
