AUTHENTIC CHURCH BROCHURE

AUTHENTIC CHURCH 2020 SCHEDULE

WHAT IF CHURCH:

  • Was simple?

  • Looked more like the pattern in the New Testament?

  • Allowed every believer to contribute and operate in their gifts?

  • Modeled a passionate pursuit of and intimacy with Jesus?

  • Held each believer accountable for their own spiritual growth?

  • Gave most of their money away to help people?

  • Was multiplying regularly?

OUR MISSION

Authentic Church exists to captivate the curious and awaken believers to become fully-devoted followers of Jesus by

  • Multiplying house churches to equip believers for the work of the ministry

  • Hosting small-group gatherings to connect with people within our communities

  • And partnering with other like-minded ministries across our region to expand our outreach efforts

OUR PLAN

We will launch house churches, life groups and partner with small churches (under 50 people) that consist of 12-15 people who meet weekly in homes, gyms, restaurants, etc., and actively outreach to their immediate neighborhoods, while consistently training new leaders to multiply the gatherings.  Also, we will host monthly gatherings, for all the groups to celebrate what is happening in their groups, declare the gospel to our community and serve those in need.  Finally, we are looking to open a coffee house/ministry center to connect with our community, host special gatherings and powerful nights of worship.  

OUR CORE VALUES
