In our hearts is a deep desire for people to turn their affections, their allegiance, and their attention to Jesus. The Spirit of Christ is calling the Church and our lost world- "Beloved Look at Me, Beloved Look at Me, Beloved Look at Me!" This is an urgent call and one that demands our greatest commitment. The days in which we live will require of us deep roots to stand against the winds of adversity. The call to know Christ intimately is the highest purpose of Radiant Church. This is an ongoing call, a process of knowing Him for which we need encouragement and inspiration from the Word, the Spirit, and the Body of Christ.
To know Christ, to become like Him, and mobilize His people for Kingdom service.
Our Father is committed to the task of glorifying His Son in the earth and He does this primarily through and in His people as they are led by His Spirit. As we “look” to Him, we become radiant – a reflection of His light. As we “look” to Him we will see Him more clearly and will be transformed into His image from glory to glory. Christ-likeness means to be like Him in devotion, character, conduct and service. This transformation into Christ-likeness is the desired result of our walk with Him and how we define discipleship. To be like Christ is the Father’s desired destiny for every person who calls upon the name of the Lord. This focus will help us learn to trust God more fully and therefore abide in Christ, Psalm 91.
Each person in whom Christ dwells has been called and gifted for service on behalf of the Kingdom. Every person is a minister. Therefore every person is to minister from the good deposits which Christ has placed within them. The greatest deposit of the Spirit within His people is the love of Christ from which all other gifts flow. To mobilize His people for kingdom service - each one must be loved, valued, trained, encouraged, anointed and sent out. We want to help unearth the treasures within people and see them fly. The result will be people who are being intentional about using their gifts and talents for the good of others and the building up of the body of Christ.
We are committed to the goal of creating a retreat environment each Sunday morning. We know that many have disconnected from the traditional church format. We want to create an opportunity for community to occur each gathering through small group and personal interaction. Part of our mission is to offer an alternative to those never churched and to those who have become disillusioned and disconnected from church. We are offering an opportunity for people to be connected in a community of faith. Community happens through relationships and it is a major focus and commitment of Radiant.
