We Are The Church: Vision Series, Part 2

Dear Redemption City Family,

Boston is a great city that strives to make a huge impact around the world. We live in a place that is constantly asking questions like "What makes us great? How can we change the world? How can we be a leading agent for change?"

And yet…Boston is a city of daily irritations, occasional horrors, hourly tests of will and even courage, and huge amounts of pure beauty.

We as the church ask questions too -- "Where does the church fit in Boston? How do we make sense of the church in the city? What kind of church does Redemption City Church want to be?" My prayer and hope in the years to come is that the church would be filled with people who embrace one another in the reality of the gospel, who aren't unified by how we look or talk, but rather that we are unified by our commitment to Jesus and the good of the city. 

Tomorrow, I’ll continue unpacking the vision of the church and how that impacts each of us. We are the church and through us, God wants to bring renewal to Boston.

I hope you can join us tomorrow.

Praying for you,
Pastor Juan
