WHAT WE VALUE:
- THE GOSPEL
- CHURCH MULTIPLICATION
HOW WE WILL LIVE THESE OUT:
Equip – Training believers how to walk in obedience
to God and become multiplying disciples.
Encounter – Establishing a culture of worship where
people are lead to encounter Christ in all they do.
Engage – Challenging believers to engage those who do not know
Christ through the Gospel, missions, & service.
The Seattle area ranks at the top of largest unchurched populations in America. It is estimated that less than 4% of Seattle’s population attends an evangelical church on any given Sunday. It is not that people in this area have no belief system. There are several religious groups that thrive in this area (Eastern religions, New Age, Wica, and Mormonism). Although locals are open to spiritual conversations, they are very proud of their acceptance of all types of religions and lifestyles. Because of this, the Gospel as the only way is difficult for them to accept and is often met with hostility. At the same time, Seattle is a very influential city culturally and is home to business giants like Microsoft, Nordstrom, Starbucks, Amazon, and Boeing.
Why Roots Community Church?
Surrounded by the Olympic and Cascade mountain ranges, Seattle is an organic, natural city where people understand and appreciate the outdoors. The name for Roots Community Church came out of this value the locals hold, but with a deeper meaning and purpose. Throughout Scripture the image of a tree is seen as an example of growth, life, and a solid foundation. This is the hope of Roots Community: that those who are not believers would come from their endless search for significance to being firmly rooted and thriving in a new life with Christ.
Why Give To Roots Community Church?
Seattle is one of the fastest growing cities in America. Because of this growth, the cost of living is incredibly high and therefore the cost of doing ministry here is high as well. As Roots Community begins the work of developing a self-sustaining, giving culture in a place where that concept is new – we need believers from the outside to help provide funding. Our prayer is that individual believers and partner churches will come alongside Roots Community through financial Provision, active Participation (sending teams, etc), passionate Prayer, and Passing On the vision to others who could do the same.
There are some great things happening through Roots Community! We would love to keep you updated on all that is happening and how you can be involved. If you would like to join our E-Newsletter please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and request to be added to the list. Thanks!
