Jesus is our foundation, pillar, focus, and purpose. We are about Him and nothing else. We want to make Jesus famous and we believe the greatest privilege of our lives is to walk in relationship with Him. Eternal life is experientially knowing Him. We long to minister to Jesus before anyone else.
We believe God is love. Everything beautiful and good comes from Him. Everything bad and wicked is a result of the World’s brokenness and the evil one. We believe that God is the most loving, kind, joyful, and amazing Being ever.
We believe God is fully alive, moving, and speaking. We aim to make every move from His presence and voice. We believe Jesus cares more about revival, the lost, and humanity than we do. Thus we don’t pray for Him to move, we know He’s already moving. We long to move with Him and co-labor in relationship WITH God.
We believe God is raising up a radical remnant of believers who will not settle for lukewarm Christianity. We are wholehearted pursuers of Jesus who know our pursuit of Him is only in response to His greater pursuit of us. We are wholehearted lovers of God and others who know our only ability to love well starts with our ability to receive His love for us. We love because He loved us first.
In response to God’s perfect unconditional love, we believe in unconditionally loving ourselves and others. We value people for who they are, not what they can do. We believe family means sticking with people at their worst. The truth of the gospel is that Jesus loved us at our worst and this type of love transforms and changes us. We want to love in the same way. We believe in spaces where people can share their deepest shame, darkest secrets, and personal struggles and be met in safety with extravagant love.
We are not trying to create our own culture. We believe Jesus came to establish and bring His Kingdom. To the best of our ability we are trying to create a biblical culture that is supernaturally empowered by God’s Spirit. The greatest blueprint we have for a move of God is contained within the Bible.
We aim for people to be who God created them to be. We believe God had something amazing in mind when He created you. We aim to set people free of their past, know who they are created to be, and be set free in their purpose. We purpose ourselves to disciple people to follow Jesus and walk in freedom. We celebrate unique Kingdom identity, people’s stories, their background, and skin color knowing it’s all a part of God’s beautiful story. We are a place of belonging which long for people to be who God made them to be, not who the World wants them to be.
WORSHIP + PRAYER
We believe in the power of prayer and worship to shift families, transform regions, bind the enemy, and birth movements of God. In prayer and worship we talk with God and feel His heart. We are a movement that seeks God continually in prayer and worship knowing His presence transforms everything.
We long for the Church to be One. One of Jesus' last prayers was for believers to be Unified. Any denomination or Church is welcome within Living Army. We believe we are better together and are collaborators not competitors. Let jealousy and division die within the body of Christ!
We believe making disciples was the mandate of Jesus to His followers. We believe discipleship is more than a service or program. Discipleship is intentionally demonstrating the ways and Kingdom of Jesus through intentional relationship and life with others. Disciples should know the color of your dishes and the inside of your home.
IDENTITY + PURPOSE
We don’t want to build a ministry of people. We want to release ministries within people. We believe every person has a calling, purpose, and people to reach and we want to be a part of discipling people into that purpose.
