The Merge

You will pursue your enemies, and they will fall before you. Five of you will chase a hundred, and a hundred of you will chase ten thousand, and your enemies will fall before you. “‘I will look on you with favor and make you fruitful and increase your numbers, and I will keep my covenant with you. You will still be eating last year’s harvest when you will have to move it out to make room for the new. I will put my dwelling place among you, and I will not abhor you. I will walk among you and be your God, and you will be my people.

Leviticus 26:7-12

THE MERGE

We believe God is raising up a people who want to be “The Church” and not just go to church.

We believe His Church can be measured by what is happening throughout a region, and not in a building.

We believe you are a part of the Church; it doesn’t require membership, because you already belong. as family, through an encounter with Jesus.

We believe that in the hearts of many there is an understanding that God’s Own Heart yearns for us to be family with each other and with Him.

We believe our gatherings together are to be more relational and demonstrate the inclusion of all in the mission of fulfilling God’s dream, rather than simply watching others do it in front of us and to us.

We believe we are equipping and training many to develop effective ministry that will touch communities, cities and nations in practical ways.

We believe God is raising up people who are extremely successful in Kingdom realms because they are motivated by hearts of compassion and love with hearts of passion for worshipping and loving Jesus.

We believe success in the Kingdom of God is not related to attendance, offering size, or charismatic personalities, but rather by the love we show in ministry to each other and to people in the world, and the cultivation of relationships that reflect the family of God.

We believe that every opportunity to release the love of God and minister to others is a reflection of the Holy Spirit on our lives and His great power, joy and love expressed to them and not an emblem to show off for our personal self-promotion and image.

We believe God is raising up something that surpasses denominational and affiliation networks and is growing into a trans-tribal family and community of laid down Jesus lovers.

We believe that hype distracts from holiness, power, and humble love that we desire in our gatherings and relationships.

We believe that God is pre-eminent in all things and hold unswervingly to the notion that He alone is our goal, our passion, our reason, our purpose, and our destination.

We believe that as servants of God we have been called to lay down personal agenda and plans and align collectively with His agenda, vision and dream.

We believe that as we fulfill the dream of God to see every knee bow, every tongue confess, and the earth filled with His glory that the individual visions we have received will be fulfilled in the process.

We believe that as we participate in sowing financially, physically, emotionally and spiritually into this Kingdom, it will have supernatural effect because it has been given to God and not to an institution.

We believe the primary membership we should retain is the The Dream Of God which eliminates our need to fulfill societal and religious obligations that may be placed on us.

We believe this is the Church.

We believe this is normal Christianity.

We believe it exists today.

The Prophets called it The Mountain Of The Lord – chief of all mountains!

Jesus called it The Kingdom of God!

Come to The Mountain!

“…That they may be one…”

In the last days the mountain of the Lord’s temple will be established as chief among the mountains; it will be raised above the hills, and peoples will stream to it. Many nations will come and say, “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths.” The law will go out from Zion, the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. He will judge between many peoples and will settle disputes for strong nations far and wide. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore. Every man will sit under his own vine and under his own fig tree, and no one will make them afraid, for the LORD Almighty has spoken. All the nations may walk in the name of their gods; we will walk in the name of the LORD our God for ever and ever. 6 “In that day,” declares the LORD, “I will gather the lame; I will assemble the exiles and those I have brought to grief. I will make the lame a remnant, those driven away a strong nation. The LORD will rule over them in Mount Zion from that day and forever… And they will bring all your brothers, from all the nations, to my holy mountain in Jerusalem as an offering to the LORD–on horses, in chariots and wagons, and on mules and camels,” says the LORD. “They will bring them, as the Israelites bring their grain offerings, to the temple of the LORD in ceremonially clean vessels. And I will select some of them also to be priests and Levites,” says the LORD… And you will sing as on the night you celebrate a holy festival; your hearts will rejoice as when people go up with flutes to the mountain of the LORD, to the Rock of Israel. The LORD will cause men to hear His majestic voice and will make them see his arm coming down with raging anger and consuming fire, with cloudburst, thunderstorm and hail. Isaiah 30:29-30, Micah 4:1-7, Isaiah 66:20-21
