Two kings are introduced to us in the Christmas story: Caesar Augustus, and Jesus Christ. Despite appearances, only one is the eternal true King.
God is sending us, His sons & daughters, into the world to participate in His grand mission of reconciliation.
The story of Christmas – in fact the good news of the gospel – can be summarized in one word; Immanuel, which means God with us.
God can be known. In fact God desires for us to know Him! And to that end God seeks us and sends Jesus as our angel of the Lord.
Living like Jesus is Lord is the adventure of counting the cost of following Him and resting in the promise of His victory.
Is thanksgiving dependent on circumstances or the consistency of who Jesus is and what He’s done for us?
Honor has incredible power. We pursue honor by starting with a revelation of Jesus’ honor and value for us. We take practical steps of avoiding comparison, taking the effort to honor others, considering what’s important for others, avoiding offense, and thinking the best of one another.
Those who are faithful with little can be entrusted with much. As we seek to become people of great impact for God’s Kingdom, we fix our eyes on Jesus and run the race with endurance through faith and hope.
Our obedience is rooted in the Lordship of Jesus, and we are invited into a partnership of participation with God as we walk in response to all that He says.
What is our dream for CITC? To be a covenant-community – a family – of God’s people where He is present, wanting nothing more than to see His reign and rule come to our neighborhoods and the nations while understanding the vital role of partnership and accountability in achieving this.
