Building Kingdom Communities
BUILDING KINGDOM COMMUNITIES first and foremost DEPLOYS PRAYER GROUP CONNECTIONS throughout the COMMUNITY PATHWAYS with a purpose of TRANSFORMING the COMMUNITY.
Every PRAYER GROUP CONNECTION ENGAGES, NETWORKS, and PARTNERS with other groups that share the same common purpose to TRANSFORM each COMMUNITY PATHWAY.
BUILDING KINGDOM COMMUNITIES through PRAYER GROUP CONNECTIONS identifies the neighborhood needs and troubling issues that are part of the HUMAN PROBLEM in each COMMUNITY.
All neighborhoods share in a COMMON CONNECTION. These COMMON CONNECTIONS are shared in COMMUNITY PATHWAYS where neighbors LIVE AND RELAX, where neighbors PLAY AND ENTERTAIN, where neighbors HEAL AND RESTORE, and where neighbors HEAL AND WORK.
Transformation Through Purpose
The definition of purpose is “the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists.” Purpose has a common connection to the word covenant including a planned design of single-mindedness and a “get up and go” attitude. Purpose and covenant are to have a sense of resolve or determination.
Transformation Through Perseverance
When we make it a purpose and covenant to be the light to the world that reveals a path to Jesus and when we also make it a purpose and covenant to be the salt of the earth that preserves that path from decay, we must engage with the neighborhood community.
Transformation Through Partnering
Pitching a tent in the neighborhood means partnering two by two. In the garden of Gethsemane Jesus partnered and shared in the agony of a sinful and hurting world and likewise our partnership in the neighborhood shares in the agony and hurting of the community members.
Transformation Through Power
Jesus has absolute authority, absolute power, and absolute rule in heaven and on earth. Absolute, by definition, means that His authority, power, and rule are complete, entire and are undiminished in any way. His rule is to the greatest extent or degree above and beyond all others.
