God longs for the day when we will see and treat people as He does. From the beginning, He made human beings in His image. Each person is of inestimable worth, created to live in life-giving relationship with others and work for the good of the world. But sin brought division, discord, and alienation from God and one another. Through Jesus, we have found forgiveness and reconciliation with God and we are being restored to God’s original purpose for life and humanity. God longs for all people to be reconciled to Him and with one another. How are you working toward and living out God’s vision and purpose?
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.— Matthew 5:9
This is why our very first key value is COMMUNITY. It is our desire so see people connected in community; connected to the family of God (salvation through Jesus Christ) and connection to King’s Grant (active membership and participation in our local fellowship).
