When we become Christians, we enter into an amazing covenant relationship with our Creator. It’s a covenant that had its beginning in a garden and was paid for with blood. It’s a costly covenant. The price to enter is no less than your life. (The good news is that in the Kingdom, giving your life means you actually gain it!)
This covenant isn’t just between you and the Lord. When you choose to covenant with Him, you are also entering into a covenant with His family. It’s a “package deal”. He has already modeled for us what true love looks like.
In our microwave culture, true covenant relationships can be rare. However, it is in these relationships that we grow and mature into who we are supposed to be. It it this type of relationship that will cause the world to grow jealous and draw people into the Kingdom. A people faithful to this covenant will find themselves doing no less than changing the world.
The House is called to change the world. We will not be satisfied until this happens. We invite you to join us on our journey. This is not a decision to be made on a whim. It’s not for the faint of heart. Yet it is a journey guaranteed to draw you closer to the heart of your Creator, help you blossom into all you have been created to be, and allow you the privilege of bringing the Kingdom of God into the earth. It’s a costly journey, one that you can’t afford to miss.
The greek word “ekklesia” can be translated “church” and means “a gathering or assembly of people brought together for a specific purpose.”
The universal church is made up of people throughout space and time – all those that have been brought together into the same family by a common Father and Savior. It is an amazing privilege to be a part of the church. To be in the same family as the heroes of the faith – Moses, Paul, Esther, and so on. To meet someone today from another culture and have a common bond of love because of a shared love for Christ. What a blessing it is to be part of such an amazing family and share in such a rich inheritance.
However, the local church is just as exciting! Being part of a local body of believers is one of the highest callings on the Christian’s life. Most people are familiar with the saying “they will know we are Christians by our love.” The love referred to here is really the love we have for one another. What will change the world will be when they witness a family of believers that have learned how to truly love one another.
There are many differences in the local church even within the same geographical location. And there are often vast differences even within the same congregation. The important thing is to find a place where you are able to hear your Father’s voice and participate in fulfilling the mission of that church. If you recognize your Father at The House, we’d love to share with you more about who we are.
