FRONTIER CHURCH IN THREE PARAGRAPHS
The gospel is the message, means, and motive of Frontier Church. By MESSAGE, we mean that the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus is the main story we tell. And we tell the story of Jesus a lot. By MEANS, we mean that the gospel isn’t just a story, but it’s the power by which we’re transformed. By MOTIVE, we mean that the good news, not good advice, is our ultimate inspiration and goal.
We invest our lives into making, maturing, and multiplying communities. We have FIGHTER GROUPS, which are gospel-centered accountability groups. We have COMMUNITY GROUPS, which are gospel-centered small groups. Launching in Summer 2016, we will have a SUNDAY GATHERING, which will be a gospel-centered church service. We want to plant more fighter groups, community groups, and churches.
We seek to train, equip, and send our people to be on the mission of Jesus. We believe that our church has a clear calling to look beyond our own immediate community to our CITY (where we spend our time & money), COMMUNITY (where we live & those who live around us), and CRAFT (where we work & earn our money). The word mission can get funny, but we mean that people constantly share whatever it is they’re most joyful about. And we believe that Jesus is the first and best person to be joyful about.
