For many non-believers, the church means a big building with judgmental and bigoted people. For believers, it can mean a place they come to be served or watch a show. In reality, it is neither. The Church remains the hope of the world, but for many, it must be redefined.
In truth, the Church is a worldwide community of imperfect believers, diverse in every way but redeemed by Jesus, and actively working to fulfill his mission. This group of people may only have one thing in common: they worship and love Jesus. They may not be from the same country, but they are brothers and sisters in Christ. They may vote differently, but they have concern and love for each other. They may not speak the same language, but they have a shared affection for Christ.
WHY ST. LOUIS?
St. Louis is one of the most segregated cities in the nation and is top 5 in homicides each year. In 2021, a study documenting the most sinful cities in America named St. Louis as the second most sinful city behind Las Vegas. St. Louis ranked #1 in the nation in the category of Hatred and Anger. We are planting a church because the love of Christ can turn a city known for hatred into a city on a hill shining the light of Christ. We want to redefine what it means to be the church and as a result, redefine St. Louis.
