The Cross Calls Us to Unity.
Ephesians 4:2-6, “Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. 3 Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. 4 There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.”
We as the greater church have been given a command to keep unity. We realize that unity within the present church is one of the most difficult responsibilities we face. Through the differences in music, strategies, patterns, and culture we see a divide and a competition that is exactly opposite of what God has commanded us to create.. Unite & Ignite seeks to pursue the “one God and Father of all” as one united body.
The Cross Calls Us to Multiply.
Matthew 28:18-20, “Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.”
The Great Commission that we have been challenged with is to continue to grow the church through discipleship. We believe this will happen by pursuing people and investing in relationship while modeling a Christ-centered life to non-believers. Unite & Ignite desires to have a consistent culture of discipleship that is fueled by the addition of new believers to the body of Christ. As we gather, we desire to see new people that have been reached out to and missionally discipled by those who have been inspired by the call of the cross.
The Cross Calls Us to Worship.
1 Chronicles 16:8-11, “Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done.9 Sing to him, sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts. 10 Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice. 11 Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.
Unite & Ignite has a passion and full desire to worship the one deserving God. We believe that once there is a realization of the full impact of what the cross means, our only response is raw and genuine worship to the One who has saved us. Unite & Ignite wants to remove the calloused nature of the current church’s view of the cross. We never want to forget that our only hope of salvation is Jesus, the son of God.
