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.  We are convinced that the only hope for Chicagoland is ongoing renewal 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.

 

What must we do together that we could never do apart?
