Big idea

Love moves through a community that follows Jesus together.

If our highest love is our own individual interests, we will choose to serve ourselves over seeking to meet the needs of others.

-Jonathan Edwards

Every one of us must figure out how to shape our lives so that they can be shared to a significant degree with others, ... 

… though this is difficult when the prevailing trend in our culture is to organize our lives based on maximum personal benefit. 

- Tim Dickau

Koinonia demonstrated to its community that Southern rural black and white families do not need to be consigned to substandard housing …

… but could have new homes for a down payment of $700 and payments of less than $60 a month for 20 years.

-Stephen Mott

God’s mission is as wide as creation and as deep as every corner of the human heart. 

Mission is to reach into every sector of culture and into every moment of every person’s day, until Christ returns. To achieve this, God doesn’t just use you, he uses us.

God's plan is that we, the church, are to be the primary evidence of his presence in the world

 -Mark Labberton

How it is possible that the gospel should be credible, that people should come to believe that the power which has the last word in human affairs is represented by a man hanging on a cross?

I am suggesting that the only answer, the only hermeneutic of the gospel, is a congregation of men and women who believe it and live it.

-Leslie Newbigin
