The first ingredient to a heart fully alive is Orientation—knowing and experiencing God’s love in a way that reshapes and remodels who we are. The Life of the Kingdom—the Way of Freedom—is violently opposed by the kingdom of darkness. To enjoy this restoration we are going to have to fight for it. In community, many of us have been hurt, and yet, it is in community where Jesus will often rescue and restore.
All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of his possessions was his own, but they shared everything they had. With great power, the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and much grace was upon them all.
We aspire to live like the first century believers and hold to a hope that it was not just available for them. We hope to live locally in a Redemptive Community where we can impart courage to one another, fight for one another, love one another as Jesus modeled for us to do.
Redemptive Community must be small and intimate. Yes, we have and want many friends, and no, we are not trying to be exclusive. However, a small fellowship of hearts where you can know the story, journey, and glory of others—know and be known—is how we have found men and women best experience the fellowship of the saints.
