The Mission Of Revolution Church
At Revolution, our mission is to help who are far from God find a revolutionary life in Christ. This guides everything that we do – whether we are singing, teaching, working or serving. All that we are belongs to the Almighty God, and only He can truly bring revolutionary change.
The Strategy Of Revolution Church
We employ a simple four-fold biblical strategy to help us accomplish our mission: Christ-centered worship, Christ-centered community, Christ-centered service, and Christ-centered multiplication.
Life consists of constant worship. Every thought, word, desire and deed involves the ascribing of worth and value – glory. Each attitude, affection and activity is an expression of our allegiance, whether to our Creator or His creation. God is alone worthy of our worship.
Worship is related to every area of our lives. We are called to eat, drink, speak, think and work to the glory of God (1 Corinthians 10:31). Worship cannot be narrowed down to a particular time and place. Everything is an expression of worship.
Christ-centered worship is to be pursued in every facet of our lives as we consider how all-encompassing the gospel is to us. As a church family we gather in a corporate worship service. Within this venue, we worship God by remembering the gospel through preaching, teaching, singing, praying and celebrating the ordinances of baptism and communion.

The Christian faith is not intended to be lived in isolation. We were made for community – relationship with God and with each other. The local church is not merely a place that we attend but a people to whom we belong. The Bible calls us members of the body (1 Corinthians 12:12-31) with the expectation that we contribute to the body for the glory of God and the good of His people.
Christ-centered community is a radical call amid a culture of mere church attendance and casual involvement. It involves mutual love, care, consistency and authenticity as we seek to live as Christ lived with others. When these elements are lacking, we have moved away from Christ-centered community and into the realm of social clubs.
Christ-centered community is primarily expressed through our Community Groups- click here for more details. Groups are not perfect and those who participate in them will find them messy at times. However, our hope is that group members will be radically committed to reform from within. This takes time, prayer, effort, patience, love, trust and hope.

In John 13:1-20, we read the account of Jesus washing His disciples’ feet. This was no regular rabbinical task, but was instead reserved for the lowest of all servants. Here was the Son of God doing the inconceivable. By humbly cleansing the feet of His disciples, Jesus gave an abiding example of service and issued a command for us to follow in His steps. We were saved that we might now serve.
Christ-centered service is motivated by what Jesus has done for us and seeks to extend His grace and mercy to others for His glory and not our own. It can and should be pursued in various ways by all who are following Christ. Those who have been impacted by the gospel have countless opportunities – both formal and informal – to serve others by greeting at the doors of the church, volunteering in one of our Next Generation ministries, teaching, singing, serving communion, giving financially to the needs of others, opening their homes to their neighbors, etc.

In perhaps the most famous passage on discipleship, Matthew 28:18-20, Jesus issues the Great Commission for the Church, which involves multiplication. We are to become better disciples through love for God and love for others by equipping and empowering others to do the same. We are called to growth as we extend the gospel of life to a dead world.
Numerous opportunities exist for the work of multiplication. God has determined the exact time and place in which you live, work and play for His glory (Acts 17:26). God was intentional in directing our lives, so we should live with intentionality in all that we pursue.
Those who have found a revolutionary life in Christ have many opportunities to enter into the work of Christ-centered multiplication. From interacting with neighbors and coworkers to missional outreach or mission trips, our lives have been infused with purpose and meaning. The disciple’s call is multiplication and replication through the gospel – for the glory of our God.
Together as church body we take seriously the work on Christ-centered multiplication. Therefore, we seek to multiply the kingdom by planting churches and campuses, starting new Community Groups and creating a movement of service in our community and beyond.
