ABOUT

KING’S PEOPLE

“Discovering the way of powerful living in Jesus Christ.” We believe disciples of Jesus should be powerful people. Powerful people are spiritually mature people who courageously allow God to develop them into his son’s image. Like grapes from the vine, only the ripe can be squeezed into wine. When we are truly developed in the Spirit, crushing us yields something sweet rather than something sour. That is what it means to be powerful. When we naturally return mercy for malice, blessing for curse, forgiveness for injury, and love for hate, we conquer evil and impact the world in Jesus’ name and by the presence of the Holy Spirit. That is power. To be powerful is to value supernatural character over success. To be powerful is to be like Jesus. God uses the pressures of life like a hammer, and his Word like a chisel, to sculpt us into Christ’s image. But God’s workshop for such sculpting is our spiritual family, the church. Discipleship occurs within an organic, covenant community. We cannot experience maximum growth by choosing churches based on their physical facilities and childcare, attending conference-style services, or solving problems by simply going somewhere else. Church is not about us. It’s about the people God called us to love and serve. Biblical church is a family that requires us to take responsibility, be conformed to Jesus’ image, serve others, and therefore become powerful. Otherwise, we will continue to serve our own interests, run from the real issues, blame everyone else, and remain weak. We are trying not to do that anymore. We are working to discover the way of powerful living in Jesus Christ.

THE MISSION

To make disciples and plant house churches in our city. We believe the best way to fill our city with Christ is to make disciples who meet and multiply through small, close-knit groups called churches. Out of such churches emerge the creative presence and power of Christ through: a consistent flow of love, evangelism, and discipleship; strong leaders; compassion for the poor; and impact on the city’s moral well being.

THE VISION

King’s People is a ministry work that plants and nurtures house churches. Each church is called to be a Jesus-centered, Spirit-filled “family on mission.” We believe God’s Kingdom on earth looks like people who look like Jesus. We want to be that kind of people – people who allow the Spirit to develop the image of Jesus in us both as individuals (Rom 8:28-30), as well as churches (Eph 4:7-16). So we do certain things together: 1) meet as groups for worship, prayer, and sharing the spiritual gifts; 2) cultivate relationships outside of church gatherings; 3) meet in smaller groups for more intensive discipleship; 5) help take care of one another’s needs; and 6) reach out to our community with the gospel and acts of love.
