Who We Are

OUR MISSION

The Message’s mission is kingdom. We are to be the agents who bring the power of heaven to the earth, i.e., to be the reason heaven, the kingdom, invades the space in which we currently live and becomes the possession of everyone living without it. We exist so that everyone finds their place and potential in the family of that kingdom.

     The Message in Words     

Community

A community is a group sharing common characteristics or interests and is distinct from the larger society within which it exists. The church is a community of believers who possess the common characteristic and distinction of Divine life. It is a tribe of people who possess the life of God's kingdom, who express it together and in which someone discovers their true worth – the village that nurtures the child.

Purpose

According to the purpose of the ages, which he [the Father] purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord.” —Paul of Tarsus, Ephesians 3:11

The triune God is chiefly occupied with a house, a family for God Abba (Eph. 2:19–22), a bride and a body for God Son (Eph. 5:25–32; 1:22–23; 2:15–16; 3:6). Who we are finds it’s completion in His purpose.

Kingdom

The kingdom “is already,” but “not yet;” present but at the same time future. The kingdom that belongs to the future age has broken into this present age and it is the community who live under Jesus as Lord who are living in the presence of the future. It doesn’t seek to change the political order by human effort; it effects changes in the spiritual order that affect the lives of men and women at a deeper level.

Catalyst

A catalyst precipitates or accelerates activity between agents. It must be mixed into something to generate a reaction (otherwise nothing will happen). Chemical reactions are caused by molecules “bumping” into each other; how fast a reaction occurs depends on the number of collisions between molecules – we look to “mix,” be in contact and react with others to show them the value and power of Jesus.

      Cornerstones of Our Community     

God is Good (Always)

God is good, so we're required to dream big.

Nothing is Impossible

Nothing is impossible, so a huge part of our life is designed around taking risk.

Free & Responsible

Everything we'll ever need was dealt with at the cross, so we must come to a place of trusting Him in everything.

We are Significant

God has made us each to be significant, so we must serve well.
