OUR CORE PASSIONS

  1. THE GOSPEL This is our central passion, from which the others flow… because the Gospel changes everything. “For I am not ashamed of the Gospel...” Romans 1:16

  2. The Bible Because the Bible is the source of our spirituality. “These are the scriptures that testify about me [Jesus].” John 5:39

  3. The Church Because the Church is God's new community, made possible by the Gospel. “The church of God, which he bought with his own blood...” Acts 20:28

  4. Discipleship Because life-on-life discipleship is a great way to grow as a follower of Christ. “We were ready to share with you not only the gospel, but also our very lives.” 1 Thessalonians 2:8

  5. Loving Lexington Because the Gospel changes our attitude toward our city and our world. “The love of Christ compels us.” 2 Corinthians 5:14

  6. Humility Because the Gospel gives us an honest view of ourselves and of God. “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” 1 Peter 5:5

  7. Bold Love Because we love each other enough to talk face to face when we have issues. We can talk about people rather than talk to them. The gospel frees us to talk to one another rather than about one another. “If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault...” Matthew 18:15-20

  8. Embracing Weakness Because in God’s upside-down Kingdom, weakness comes before strength. We want to celebrate those who live life out of their weakness. “For when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:10

  9. Prayer Because we must. “Lord, teach us to pray.” Luke 11:1

  10. Renewal - Because the Gospel renews our everyday lives (homes, jobs, neighborhoods, education, politics, media and the arts). “Whatever you do, work hard, as for the Lord and not for men.” Colossians 3:23
