This seemingly simple statement is an anchor for our church. It calls us to be people living as sons and daughters of God, living in the grace of Jesus and empowered by the Holy Spirit. This happens not only as the gathered church on Sundays, but also as the sent church throughout the week. We are not called to do this alone and therefore we engage our communities with our Community Groups.
Living a gospel-centered life is applying the gospel to every aspect of our lives. The gospel informs us that Jesus has forgiven us of our sins and given us a position of righteousness before the Father. We rely on the gospel to keep us from religious performance as well as the seduction of sin. The gospel also informs us that we are sent out into our communities to make disciples.
