Kairos Vision Frame:
As a church, why do we exist?
Kairos exists to encourage one another daily to follow in the way of Jesus.
What is our unique call as a church?
We believe that, God has called Kairos to gather together to be formed as disciples, share how Jesus is working in our lives, and be sent out to join God’s story. To approach this call, we are a community that is committed to:
- Knowing the way of Jesus
Through teaching and study, we engage the Lord’s ways testified to in scripture. We claim God’s story as our own and ask how we can continue to live in this way as we meet the demands of life. We empower each other through this story to lean into our gifts as the people we were created to be.
- Living in real community
We wrestle in community with vulnerability and honesty, believing that God works through his people to restore one another from broken sinner into mature disciple. We seek reconciliation in geographic, political, theological, economic, life stage, and cultural diversity because it deepens our need for Jesus and broadens our understanding of the Kingdom. In all this, we desire to care for each other like Christ has cared for us.
- Joining God’s work in the world
We declare Christ will have the final word on this earth. We know the end of the story so we confidently join in God’s continuing work of restoration in our families, our work, our city, and the world. We believe that practicing the way of Jesus is a purpose not just a preference. We invite others to join us, knowing that one day God’s kingdom will be here in full.
Why does this matter? What is the goal?
For some mysterious, grace filled reason, we have been allowed to see and experience a new reality that comes through Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection. God has called us to live lives together as witnesses to this reality in every aspect of our life, and in doing so, we believe we become a community where the Spirit speaks and acts through us, the Church. The work of the Spirit in us proclaims to the world what is to come.
What are the spiritual disciplines we are committed to?
In Acts 2, we see that in order to grow in our relationship with Christ, with one another, and with Christ’s work in the world we must devote ourselves to the study of scripture, intimate fellowship with one another, a life of prayer, and extravagant generosity.
As encouragers in the way of Jesus, how do we live out our call?
We recognize that we are called today by encountering the risen Lord in community, and then in every aspect of life, in small and large way, seeking to love as Jesus loves us.
