Why We serve
We serve Chicago because of the gospel of Jesus Christ. In the Old Testament, God clearly calls his people to have concern and do good to those in need. In the New Testament, we see God, in the form of Jesus, actively caring for those in need - reaching out to those on the very fringes of society.
We believe that right beliefs (Orthodoxy) and right living (Orthopraxy) should be wedded together. Our belief about God should influence the way we live in the world. We believe that the God of Scripture is one who takes initiative. He “created”, “came down”, “called”, “chose”, and “caused us to be born again to a living hope.” Therefore, in response to his initiating work we are now to be initiators as well; people who take action by the power of the Holy Spirit. God has supplied everything we need to take bold, risk-taking steps for the good of others and glory of God in the city of Chicago.
We invite you to serve with us through any of our initiatives or partners.
