‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’ (Jeremiah 33:3) The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us. (1 Corinthians 10:10-12)
Bringing Heaven to Earth
We are simply a family of believers on a mission together. We aim to do what Jesus commanded. We worship Jesus, interact with Him in creative ways, pray together, love each other and make disciples. We gather in houses, apartments, coffee shops, campuses or anywhere else the Holy Spirit leads. We command healing over people who are sick in Jesus’ name. We listen to the Holy Spirit when He speaks. We worship Jesus and long to see His face.
As a family of believers, we aim to know Him deeply and intimately. We want to know His heart and His character. We want to hear His voice and peak into His throne room. We are are not satisfied to live another day without the weightiness of His glory. The day is coming when God will open the door of Heaven with His “shekinah” glory. And God is looking for people that will hear him knock and open the door. We want to be that kind of people.
We have fallen in love with Jesus, passionate for what matters to Him and determined to bring Heaven to earth. God and His Word are the foundation for everything in life. And we realize that the most important work on earth is to worship the Lord Jesus Christ. Everything else is an outflow of our intimacy and worship of Him. And you too were created for the same purpose. You were created for encounter. You were created to live in a reality far greater than your natural eyes see right now. You were created to carry the glory of the Lord in this world. The Bible says in Ephesians 2 that when you repent and surrender your life over to Jesus, then you are “raised up” and “seated with Him in the heavenly realms.” This means you have full and legal access to all that belongs in heaven.
As a community of believers, we declare Butler as a mission hub of disciple-making and a community of 24/7 worship and prayer. We see on the horizon radical changes coming to the Church in Western Pennsylvania and beyond. The shift of how we do church will never appear the same again. Worship and prayer will replace programs. Apostolic assignments and personal missions will replace personal edification. In times of persecution, the Church will emulate greater levels of revelations and renewed mindsets.
Because of these changes coming to the Church, we need faith in Him before we have faith in what He can do. Your need moves His heart. Your faith moves His hand. We need Him. We need His heart. We are lost without knowing Him deeply and personally, hearing His voice and feeling His heartbeat. The goal of Christianity is to know Jesus deeply and intimately. Everything else comes out of this intimacy. This is why as a community of believers we have four immovable cornerstones:
- Church Planting
The focal point of this mission hub is worship, prayer, discipleship and establishing churches. People of all walks of life come to be equipped and released into cities, campuses and marketplaces to spread the Gospel through simple church planting and discipleship movements for global impact. If the Jeep can be sent out from Butler to all the nations of the world, disciples can be developed and released from Butler into all nations of the world too. We are world-impact disciples who believe that as a family of believers we can shake Western Pennsylvania and the world for Christ’s glory
Releasing Sons & Daughters
As a result of His presence, the Gospel of Jesus Christ is moving through discipleship movements and simple church movements in Butler and Western Pennsylvania. We are commissioned by God to usher His presence, establish simple churches in every neighborhood throughout Butler county, Western Pennsylvania and beyond. We go where the Holy Spirit leads. We pray for people and ask Jesus to open doors. Here we connect with others who long for God’s holy presence, committed to developing disciples and determined to bring Heaven to earth.
We create a culture of honor for worship that brings an open heaven and releases sons and daughters to be kingdom-minded, to walk in the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit and empower them for global impact. Today we live in one of the greatest times to be alive as we are witnessing supernatural signs, miracles and healings throughout Butler. There is no greater time than now to obey Jesus and walk in His authority.
Authority of the Believer
Scripture reveals that every follower of Christ has authority over all the power of the enemy (Luke 10:18-20). Every follower of Christ participates in the divine nature and resurrected power of Jesus Christ (John 1:16; Ephesians 1:19-23; 2 Peter 1:3-4). And we are commanded as believers to reach the lost, make disciples, heal the sick, raise the dead and cast out demons (Matthew 10:8, 28:19-20). Scripture also reveals that every follower of Christ is given the status of royal priesthood (2 Corinthians 5:17; 1 Peter 2:5, 9). Therefore, every follower of Christ is commissioned and empowered based on the Word of God to do the following:
- to testify to the Lordship of Christ (Mark 8:27-30)
- make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28: 18-20)
- baptize (Mark 16:14-17 & Acts 8:36-39)
- administer and celebrate communion (Exodus 12:3-10 & Acts 2:42,46)
Intercession for Cities & Nations
Prayer is essential for starting, leading and growing simple churches. In prayer, we hang out with Jesus talking to Him daily and falling in love with what matters most to Him. When the Church prayed together in Acts 4, cities were shaken, missionary bases were developed and a new spirit of creativity was discovered. When the Church prayed earnestly for Peter in Acts 12, the Gospel was unstoppable (12:24). When we intercede diligently as believers for open heaven, the Kingdom of God invades earth in turn lives are never the same. As believers, we want to prop open the heavens and the full glory of God so that all people encounter God simply by being around us. We dare to dream God’s dream.
“…for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ…” ” And you shall make two cherubim of gold; of hammered work you shall make them at the two ends of the mercy seat. 19 Make one cherub at one end, and the other cherub at the other end; you shall make the cherubim at the two ends of it of one piece with the mercy seat. 20 And the cherubim shall stretch out their wings above, covering the mercy seat with their wings, and they shall face one another; the faces of the cherubim shall be toward the mercy seat” (Exodus 25:18-20)Releasing Sons & Daughters for Global Impact.
