ALL NATIONS OF THE ATLANTA-AREA TRANSFORMED BY JESUS CHRIST.
TO BE A MULTI-ETHNIC CHURCH BRINGING TRANSFORMATION TO ALL NATIONS OF THE ATLANTA AREA.
In an age when Sunday mornings at 11AM is the most segregated time in America, we aim to break the mold and be followers of Jesus from all nations who join together to worship God together and to serve those around us.
Because there are many new immigrants in Lilburn and Gwinnett county, our goal is to serve and help them in the name of Jesus Christ.
OVER 400,000 PEOPLE IN GWINNETT COUNTY DON’T KNOW JESUS!
- Gwinnett County is one of the fastest growing counties in the US
- Gwinnett County the most ethnically diverse county in the southeast and is more ethnically diverse than San Francisco and Chicago
- 1 in 4 residents in Gwinnett County is foreign born
- 1 in 3 residents in Lilburn is foreign born
- 90% of new residents in Gwinnett County are non-white
- God has called us to make disciples of all nations and the nations have come to us
THIS IS OUR MISSION!
We exist to be…
Passionately Loving God – God is Love, and understanding and experiencing God’s sacrificial love for us is vital to the life of a believer. It transforms us and enables us to know him personally and love and worship God passionately.
Sacrificially Loving Others – Jesus Christ died for us so that we don’t have to die for our sin. His sacrificial love for us not only gives us an example that true love “gives”, but transforms us and enables us to sacrificially love others. Christ’s love for us enables us to reach out to a lost and hurting world with the hope of new life in Jesus and sacrificially give of our lives, time and resources.
Unified in Diversity – God is three distinct persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, who are completely unified in essence and purpose – unity in diversity. In heaven, all nations will worship God together and on earth, God is the God of all nations. We strive to represent a slice of heaven where people of different races, nations, languages and ethnicities can be united in worshipping Jesus and serving others.
Inviting and Training – Christ has called us to follow him and has changed us, forgiven us and trained us to live life to the fullest. We are called to invite others into this new life of hope and as God transforms them, our purpose is to prepare believers to fulfill their God-given purpose.
Empowering – God’s word declares that healing, signs and wonders are to be a part of normal Christian life. He gives his Holy Spirit to each one of us and we are devoted to lead each one to discover their spiritual gifts and walk in God’s promises.
Relational – God’s commands – love God and love others – are all about relationship. We are called not to follow God by ourselves, but he has called us to be a part of his family. The church is his family and we exist to strengthen, support and encourage one another, connecting with one another in meaningful relationships.
