Walking into our Inheritance

God has a spacious place for us and we enter in by faith, receiving all that Jesus has won for us. Because of Jesus we are co-heirs with Christ and can live finding our joy and hope in Him, despite our circumstance. We can dream big in Him, not living in fear of the unknown or wishing for what’s familiar but trusting in our big God and His good plans for our lives, moving into the more He has for us.

Our Future Inheritance

The world defines inheritance as material goods. Our future inheritance is so much more than that. It is to stand before our God and receive “the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day” (2 Tim 4:7). Be encouraged and lean into Him as we move beyond worldly inheritance in order to appear before God (Ps 84:7) to receive our everlasting inheritance.

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.

Vision & Values- Jesus and His Presence

The most important revelation we have, is our revelation of who Jesus is. Let’s keep our passion and love for Jesus alive and be a church that is captivated by Jesus.  Our revelation of Jesus will keep us from dry Christianity and going through the motions.
