INFECTIOUSLY IN LOVE

"... I am sick with Love. " --Song of Songs 5:8

As Every and All missionaries, we strive to be infectiously in love with the Trinity and to be known for our passion for Jesus. We are committed to a daily holy hour, meditation on scripture, adoration, and frequent confession of our sins. Our missionaries are convicted of the universal call to contemplation and they strive to be transformed by complete and total union to our God in this life.  

We live a life of abundant joy filled with constant prayer, praise, and thanksgiving. Overwhelmed by His goodness, all of our missionary activity is an overflow of His radical love for us.

WHOLENESS

"Do not be conformed to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind." --Romans 12:2

As missionaries, we strive to take captive every thought, so that, by the renewal of our minds, we might be conformed to the mind of Christ. We find our confidence in knowing what it means to be sons and daughters of the Father.

Knowing who we are, we desire to be prophetic witnesses of Heaven on Earth.  As Christians, we are called to be dead to all sin and alive in Christ Jesus. Fully alive in our identity and convicted of the call to wholeness, we constantly turn to Jesus for inner healing and the ridding of all vices and strongholds in our lives.

OWNERSHIP OF THE GREAT COMMISSION

"Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations ...               teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age." --Matthew 28:19

The Great Commission was not given to an organization or institution. Through our baptism, each of us has a personal obligation to participate in the mission of Christ. The Church has one vision: to see missionary disciples made of all nations. This can only happen through spiritual multiplication and death to all distractions that other visions and desires create. 

As a result of this invitation, we strive to die to ourselves and live the call to simplicity and detachment with our eyes set on Heaven.  After the model of the Church, we participate in her mission beginning with the preferential option for the poor. Our lives are not our own: we are ready to be used and to go to the ends of the Earth.

TEAM DISCIPLESHIP

 "This is how they will know that you are my disciples, by how you love one another." -- John 13:35

 We are convicted that Jesus has called us to mission as a team. Jesus personally commissioned each individual disciple but sent them out as a team to reach the world with his Gospel. In owning the Great Commission together, we are able to form other missional communities to be disciples who continue to multiply until the whole world is set ablaze. 

We need one another and are committed to accountability, fraternal correction, and encouragement. We value vulnerability, trust, and humility as we constantly strive to speak life into our team; stirring up one another towards love and good works. 

TEAM DISCIPLESHIP

 

 Jesus tells us that where two or three are gathered in His name, there He shall also be. Jesus didn't raise up individual disciples but rather He formed a a team. We want to be on mission with a team who raises up other missional communities and teams who continue to multiply and manifest Christ to the world.

CONFIDENT RISK-TAKING WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT

"My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.-- 1 Corinthians 2:4-5

"The Holy Spirit is the principal agent of the whole of the Church's mission"-- Pope St. John Paul II

We partner with the Holy Spirit to evangelize with the boldness of the early church. We believe that it is normal for the proclamation of the Gospel to be accompanied by prophecy, healing, signs and wonders. We are confident that when we take risks with the Holy Spirit, He manifests the fullness of life.
