The World at Our Doorstep
Atlanta has become one of the most diverse cities in America. God has brought the ends of the earth to our doorstep. With that, God has also brought amazing partnerships for us to impact the nations with the Good News, bring hope to the hopeless, and to see God change hearts with the message that Jesus saves.
Pray. Send. Go. The Five Cities.
Why Five Cities?
First, we looked at the desperate need the world has for the gospel, and that Jesus is worthy of worship from all peoples everywhere. The fact that people have never even heard the Good News is unacceptable to us, and we knew we had to do something more. We started looking at our strategic partners with the vision of a global impact in mind. We identified five cities that are strategically located around the globe that are full of people who need to hear the Good News, and who can join us in preaching the gospel to the nations.
Where are the cities?
Atlanta, GA; Havana, Cuba; Casablanca, Morocco; Prague, Czech Republic; and Lijiang, China. These five cities strategically place us among different cultures and people, and give us the chance to engage them with life changing news: Jesus is alive and forgiveness of sins and reconciliation to God has come.
What do I do to make a difference?
The responsibility to accomplish the mission is on each of us individually. Some should send, some should go, but all should pray. Our journey as a church to take the gospel to the ends of the earth is one that must be saturated with the prayers of God’s people. So as a LIFE Group, a family, a couple, an individual, join us. Pray for the cities, send workers, and go with us into the cities with the hope of the gospel!
