BUILDING BLOCKS OF PEACE

Practical Training for Local Action

1st Saturdays of March, April, and May

 

 
 

MISSION

Uniting the diverse followers of Jesus in Chicagoland by prayerful engagement towards holistic transformation of our communities.

 
 

WHAT IS "PRAYERFUL ENGAGEMENT"?

United prayer emanating from broken, yielded hearts, coupled with God-inspired action.

What is "holistic transformation"?

We desire to see the values and power of the Kingdom of God influence every sector of our society by the proclamation and demonstration of the Gospel of Jesus.

How must we pursue this goal?

Together.  A historically divided church cannot bring healing to a historically divided city.  We need you so that we can be “The Church” in oneness, fulfilling the prayer of Jesus in John 17.

 
 

HABITS

Forming faithful habits of prayer, unity, and action.

CENTERING VALUES

We focus on Jesus—Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior (1 John 4, 1 Tim 4)

We pray as our primary practice—Prayer is Powerful (John 14)

We want to become the answer to Jesus’ prayer in John 17—"that we may be one… that the world may know"

We anchor ourselves on the historic Christian faith, as stated in the Apostles Creed, and extend grace amid our various traditions and emphases
