Overview

God still walks the earth, but these days he does it through his people. Far from an impersonal institution or a closed religious club, the church is really a life-giving spiritual community, the place where God touches humanity through those who follow him. It’s where God’s stories are told and taught, where hope is lived out, where people are reconciled, and where God is encountered.

Join in this conversation about the real life of faith, the spiritual journey that is shared with others who hunger for God. The life of faith is a team sport, with God’s people gathering to hear his voice and then going out to do the work of his kingdom on earth.

If you’re curious about how God shows up on earth today, then you’re ready for honest dialogue about the real life of faith. It’s time to take a new look at God on Earth.
