Real Life Christian Communities is a community of Christian communities located in various places but united under one vision frame.
This vision frame includes the following:
Our Common Mission
We have one common mission — to help a specific target group of people or place to experience real life in Christ together with others.
We define real life as the life that God intends for us. It’s a life characterized by authentic love for God and for others that comes from a transformed heart. Jesus said…
Our Common Method
To accomplish our mission, we follow one common method called “communityship.” “Communityship” is the process of creating communities of faith through the word of God and by the power of the Holy Spirit. This method involves implementing discipleship, nurturing relationships and apostolic mission among a particular people group or place. Discipleship is all about teaching people how to follow Jesus everyday. Nurturing relationships is all about teaching people how to initiate, grow, maintain and deepen life-giving relationships with one another. Apostolic mission is all about teaching people how to use their spiritual gifts and talents to fulfill God’s purpose for their lives.
Our Common Motivation
We are motivated by the same set of fundamental values. First of all, we are motivated by our faith in the Gospel. The Gospel or Good News is through Jesus Christ everyone can experience a life that is so much better than the best life they can ever imagine. Second, we are motivated by our hope in the New Creation. It starts now through the work of the Holy Spirit in and through His people and in the church, but it will one day climax in the creation of a new heaven and new earth. Last but not the least, we are motivated by love. This love comes from God, first of all. But because of this love, we are motivated to love God and others as well. The apostle John says in 1 John 4:7-12…
Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.
Our Common Marks of Success
How do we know that we are accomplishing our mission? Generally, we know we are succeeding if we can see an increasing number of people from various sectors of society who are experiencing real life in Christ together with others. This is our common marks of success.
