When we work together to make the Gospel of grace, truth, mercy and justice visible and tangible, then the Kingdom of God will become more real in the life of our city.
We value the Gospel. This gospel is the good news that God has loved and reconciled the world to Himself through the life, death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. As the Church, we are called to live our lives for the sake of the gospel, and we believe that the gospel when properly understood stands firmly on two legs; Word and Deed. Thus, we are called to proclaim (Word) and demonstrate (Deed) the life, death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
We value Church Unity. Which means we value Christ’s Church. We believe that the church, when united and operating in the power of the Holy Spirit, is the most powerful change agent in the world, and must be the main driver of any lasting city-transformation efforts. Because we value church unity, we provide a neutral gathering for the church to connect and grow deeper in relationship, trust, leading to gospel-centered collaboration for the good of the city.
We value Charlotte. We believe that God has placed His Church in Charlotte as His transformative change agents. The Scriptures call the church to seek the peace (shalom) of the city. Because we are gospel-centered, we desire to see gospel movement in the areas of our city that need them most. These areas are based on trusted research, to be made available in the “State of the City Report” at Movement Day Charlotte.
