MOVEMENT exists to multiply disciples of Jesus Christ in Christ-Centered Covenant Community.
Multiplying disciples of Jesus Christ
The college life-stage is some of the most formative years of our lives. Whether one is enrolled in school or not, it is the time of transitioning into independence physically, emotionally, and spiritually. It is a time of discovering what we love and enjoy, our passions and our gifts. It is a time of celebrating what is, and dreaming of what may come to be. It is the beginning of the journey of exploring our purpose and passion. It is also a time of navigating uncertainty, a time of learning how to fail well and questioning our assumptions about the world. It may be a time of pain, a time of disappointment, fear, and heartache. But all in all, it is a time of growth and opportunity.
In such a time, we find the profound meaning of these words of Jesus: “Follow me” (Jn 1:43).
We at Movement believe that Jesus was not only a man born and dead two thousand years ago, but the Son of God, God incarnate, who rose again from the dead and ascended into heaven, making a way for all to be reconciled to God. We want to explore this truth together. What does it mean to follow this Jesus when we are weighed down by the pressures of academics or job search? When we are struggling financially? What does it mean to believe this when depression hits hard and unexpectedly, when we feel anxious and lonely? What does it mean to be devoted to him when everything in life seems to be going well?
Christ-Centered Covenant Community
Christ-Centered: We desire to live “in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ” (Phil 1:27). We seek to be intentional about not being driven by our own human impulses, but to be centered around the person, ministry, and gospel of Christ.
Covenant: We are a part of the covenant people of God. Therefore, we ought to live like it. We are not simply an affinity group or a clique. Our unity is not sustained by preferences and convenience, but by our faithful response to a sober, effortful awareness of the love of God shown through his covenant in Jesus Christ (Jer 31:33), both in Movement, in Lakeview Church, and beyond.
Community: We do life together – not only on Sundays when we gather, but through constant on/off-campus fellowship. We want to be a community that pursues daily greater love of God and of people, despite what conflicts and challenges may arise. “He has committed to us the message of reconciliation” (2 Cor 5:19) – reconciliation with God that also results in harmony among the reconciled people.
Come journey with us as we do life together and learn what it means to be disciples of Jesus Christ!
