Aletheia is here for a REASON. We believe that God has put us here for a purpose. The way we say it around here is like this:
The reason we’re here is to bring the TRUTH, GRACE, and CHANGING POWER of the GOSPEL for the GLORY OF GOD and the GOOD OF ALL PEOPLE.
In addition, we’re a people who, being changed by the Gospel of Jesus, want to live the way he’s made us to live. We call it the GOSPEL RHYTHM. The rhythm basically means that we want to GATHER and SCATTER. God has gathered his church to himself in the Gospel, but sends her out into the world with it.
The church is like a heart. If a heart only brought blood to itself, the body would die. And, if the heart only pumped blood out, the body would likewise die. A heart must pump blood out and in for the body to remain alive. Similarly, the church must constantly come to the Gospel for life, and then be sent out with it, to remain alive.
We’re here to bring the Gospel, the good news about Jesus, and we do that by gathering together as the church, and scattering across our city with it’s truth, grace, and changing power, for the glory of God, and the good of our city.
