CITY TO CITY
PRIORITIZES THESE VALUES
The gospel liberates us from the need to prove ourselves, from any guilt over the past, from an addicting over-dependence on things in the present, and it gives us infallible hope for the future.
Cities need churches:
- Where the gospel is preached faithfully and lived out for the common good.
- Where doctrine is Biblically sound and applied to the culture’s questions.
- Where believers are edified and skeptics are welcomed.
- Where disciples apply faith to their work and care for the poor.
- That are rooted in tradition and collaborate with other churches.
As we prayerfully anticipate gospel renewal in our cities and prepare to be catalysts for this gospel movement, the Gospel and Our Cities: Chicago 2018 will speak practically on how churches in all regions can fellowship and collaborate in unity and will encourage and equip pastors, church planters, city leaders and you to share the gospel effectively.
The Gospel & Our Cities will explore themes such as…
