A Universe at War
The universe is at war and has been since the fall of Lucifer from heaven. The fight between God and Satan has always been over one thing - Authority. The fight is ancient in its duration, it is cosmic in its scope, and it is unrelenting in its severity. This warfare defines the reality in which we live and none can escape its effects and final outcome. Though humankind was created in perfection and enjoyed fellowship with the Divine, a great fall in sin has cast us all into a spiral of eternal death and separation from God.
The Old Testament prophecies clearly of a Messiah who will bring salvation to God’s people. This Messiah would come from the nation of Israel in the lineage of Abraham, heir to the throne of David. Jesus Christ was this Messiah and His death on the cross meant victory over Satan and the breaking of evil strongholds on humanity. In Christ, God has restored creation and is gathering a remnant who will share forever in the triumph of his Son.
Representing the King
We believe our greatest privilege as believers in Jesus is to faithfully represent Jesus Christ as the coming King who once for all defeated the powers of evil and who will very soon utterly destroy Satan and all demonic activity. We take great joy in knowing that we have been called to declare this hope in our urban communities as a foretaste of the eternal hope to come. We believe that the single greatest expression in which we represent Christ amidst great evil is Christ the Victor.
The fight is on!
