Gospel-centered community is a radical call amid a culture of mere attendance and casual involvement. It involves mutual love, care, consistency and authenticity as we seek to adorn the person and work of Christ with our lives.
Our service is motivated by the reconciling work of God and seeks to extend His grace and mercy to others for His glory and not our own. Gospel-centered service is an expression of love and stewardship of grace marked by humility, generosity and hospitality and empowered by a passion for the glory of God.
What's important to us? What are the priorities?
Gospel-centered preaching is declaring the cross and the empty tomb. At The Gathering Church we open God’s Word, take the main point of a biblical text, make it the main point of a sermon, and apply it to life today. We are committed to sound, evangelical, biblical doctrine, and we preach the whole Bible without apology.
Gospel-centered worship is nurtured through our gathering where we worship God by remembering the gospel through preaching, teaching, singing, praying and celebrating the ordinances of baptism and communion. Each presents an opportunity for the church to receive, remember, respond and rejoice in the work of our great King.
We multiply the kingdom by living with the purpose to make God known and loved and enjoyed. Those who have been reconciled to God through the gospel have ample opportunity to enter into the work of gospel-centered multiplication.
