ONE: One body of many diverse members with diverse gifts, for building up and strengthening that body (1 Corinthians 12:12-14, Ephesians 4:11-12).
ONE DIRECTION: All called to obediently follow Jesus as Lord, as his disciples, in imitation of him in the One Direction that leads to the cross. (Luke 14:27, Philippians 2:5-11)
ONE DIRECTION COMMUNITY: Living out our salvation in social holiness, missionally incarnated, in context, in Community, sent into our neighborhoods and unto the nations. (Acts 2:42-47, Matthew 28:18-20)
One Direction Community (ODC) is a radical community of disciples, centered on the Lordship of Jesus Christ, empowered by the Holy Spirit, that is organized and focused with a missional purpose to reach out and make disciples in Madison and the surrounding areas. We are relationally reaching out to those society would label “un-churched” by living out Jesus’ commandments to Love God, Love our Neighbor, and Make Disciples. (Mk. 12:29-13; Mt, 28:18-20)
Reflecting on the Questions:
Am I a disciple worth multiplying?
If we moved out of our neighborhood would our neighbors mourn their loss?
To whom are we sent?
What do we want to be remembered for?
