It has become cliché to say church is not a building but the people. Of course, it bears repeating, but if we continue to see church as a place those people go – a worship service, a small group meeting, a Bible study, a sermon preached, some passionate singing, even a prayer meeting – then we have failed to grasp the point.
The word church, chosen by Jesus himself, means a gathering with intention. The church is pulled together, not simply for mutual support and encouragement, but to serve the mission of God, conspiring together against demonic forces and actively take back people and places overtaken by the enemy.
Redeeming Mercy exists to encourage and equip men and women to be released into everyday battle against darkness.
Mission requires dependent worship and builds intimate community.
This is church reimagined!
