WHY THINK KINGDOM?
We are often asked about the name Think Kingdom. Our name defines who we are. Our name reveals our character. "Think Kingdom" is a church on a mission. We believe that the church is a local assembly that gathers in a specific location to worship God but the kingdom of God stretches beyond the local assembly. The Kingdom is God's Rule, His reign and we believe that goes beyond the Church. Think Kingdom means to have a "kingdom mindset" that we are to have dominion and that we are the agents of change. On earth, we represent the King.This mindset governs our behavior, what we do, and ultimately how we live.
Think Kingdom will be the catalyst to expand the Kingdom of God through the building of local, national and international faith communities, ministries, churches, and movements. It is our sincere belief that the Kingdom of heaven was established through the “bottom up” approach echoed throughout the pages of the Bible. From shepherd to King, fishermen to Apostles, from the oppressed to rulers, the Bible is riddled with examples of God moving through the “ordinary” to do the extraordinary.
TO MAKE FOLLOWERS OF JESUS
LIVE FOR CHRIST. LOVE LIKE CHRIST. LEAD OTHERS TO CHRIST.
LIVE FOR CHRIST
[1 Thessalonians 5: 12-22]
We believe we are to live for Christ. As believers we must put Christ first in our lives and seek him daily. In order to do this, we need the peace of Christ to remain and rule inside of us. Simply stated, to live for Christ means knowing, loving, serving, and glorifying God. We believe this is our heart’s response to the work the Lord has done in us.
LOVE LIKE CHRIST
[Matthew 22: 37-39]
When asked, what is the greatest commandment, Jesus said, “You shall love the Lord your God with all of your heart, all of your soul and with all of your mind.” The second is, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. In order to see the Lord’s work in us, we must demonstrate kindness, patience and gentleness. To love like Christ is love not only Him, but our family, friends, and yes, even strangers!
LEAD OTHERS TO CHRIST
We all matter to God, We all have a purpose and living for Christ and loving like Christ causes us to want what God wants. It is His will that no one misses out on the opportunity to experience God’s love. We are instructed to “Compel them to come in,so that my house will be full” (Luke 14:23). We must share our faith with our family, friends, and others.
