An equipping ministry to Disciple the Church.
A mission base to Send the Church.
31 He put another parable before them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard seed that a man took and sowed in his field.
32 It is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is larger than all the garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.”
33 He told them another parable. “The kingdom of heaven is like leaven that a woman took and hid in three measures of flour, till it was all leavened.”
The Kingdom of God is a dynamic rule that is to go to and fill every part of the earth.
Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold, all together were broken in pieces, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away, so that not a trace of them could be found. But the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.
The institutional church predominately says to the world - "come" and we will work to transform you.
The Kingdom of God says - The Church carries the dynamic presence and rule of Jesus "into" the world to transform it.
We must resist the Babylonian spirit that so easily resigns itself to gather and build.
Instead we must embrace the "apostolic spirit" that sends and goes into every corner of our neighborhoods and cities.
I challenge you to think of yourself as a relational partner (church) who is planting Kingdom presence in an intentional action of invasion.
I challenge you to think of New Life as a supplemental equipping base that exist as a connecting point for multiple churches.
New Life is more of a collection of many churches that are on kingdom mission together.
Let's commit today to "Leaven this City" with the kingdom of God by planting churches everywhere.
