A Gospel Community exists to 'Make Jesus Known'.
What Are They?
A Gospel Community is a smaller concentric circle of people at Anthem Church who live out the implication of the gospel through the following values:
- Devotion rightly, so that everything we do abides in a proper understanding of the gospel, which is our spiritual worship.
- Together frequently, so we might edify one another to good works as contributing citizens in the church and the world.
- Giving generously, so our mission to the greater world is the implication of a generous people made new by the good and generous news of the gospel, itself.
Each Gospel Community has identified their unique mission within the larger Anthem community and meets regularly to eat, learn, pray and be together on mission, sharing and trusting the gospel in real and tangible expressions.
So whether you consider yourself a part of Anthem—or if you're just checking out what it looks like to live as Jesus lived—it is our desire that everyone would be an active participant in one of these communities that bring life, healing and growth.
What Does "On Mission" Mean?
To be on mission means that you’re committed to Jesus, that you’re identity is founded in Jesus, and that you embody the missio dei (mission of God) by living a life of worship to Jesus, a life of fellowship with other Christ followers, and a life of mission to those unconvinced about Jesus (Matt. 28:18-20).
How Do I Join A Gospel Community?
You can visit the Welcome Desk in the lobby on Sunday, where we will help get you on connected to the church and into a Gospel Community.
"And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. And all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.”
