The Upside-Down Kingdom

From the Brunswick Manifesto, to the Declaration of Independence, to Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous “I Have a Dream,” the history of the world has turned upon ideas. Two-thousand years ago, a Jewish Rabbi from Nazareth turned the world on its head with His Sermon on the Mount. He proclaimed an upside-down Kingdom so radical, they killed Him in an attempt to put an end to His ideas. But even death couldn’t stop the upside-down Way of Jesus. In our modern world dominated by divisive and corrupt political kingdoms, the Way of Jesus shines through. His Kingdom is without borders. His Word is trustworthy and true. His Way ushers in a new kind of humanity. Come discover the upside-down Kingdom and the right-side-up Way of life!

Loved By Jesus

What if Jesus’ love is the secret to an identity so deep, meaningful, rich, and lasting that all other identities fade into insignificance? What if the secret of abundant life is found in Jesus’ death-defying love? The Apostle John’s most defining, grounding, and meaningful identity was found in the simple fact that he was and always would be loved by Jesus. In the end, nothing else mattered. His accomplishments, connections, titles, writings, and even his very life faded in comparison to the blazing reality that he was loved by Jesus. And that love changed John forever.
