A Church of the City
For this particular season of our lives, God has called us to make Beijing our home; we live here, love it here, and the family he gives us here
“seek peace and prosperity of the city…Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you to will prosper.” Jeremiah 29:7 (NIV)
A Church for the City
God has not called us simply for our own personal advancement or to enjoy a few unique experiences. We are here to be a blessing to Beijing.
“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.”
Matthew 5:14 (ESV)
A Church from the City
One Day, when we leave Beijing, we do not leave as a consumer — moving to our next field looking for what benefits us. We leave here as a contributor taking what we’ve learned here and sowing it in the next field he calls us to.
“For here we have no lasting city, be we seek the city that is to come.”
Hebrews 13:14 (ESV)
