WHY SEEKING
THE CITY?

We Really Do Need to Make Disciples and Plant New Churches

It is evident in the past 30 years that churches in the United States have drifted away from our mission and have lost cultural influence.

Every generation is becoming less religious and less Christian. 2/3 of today's American churches have stopped growing or have declined.

While religion in the United States was once seen as social good, it is increasingly considered by many to be bad for people and a major obstacle to social progress. The Church is facing an increasing rejection of a shared sacred order and an intentional separation from shared moral values and absolutes.

This drift from our mission of making disciples of Jesus and loss of cultural influence should not cause the Church and Christians to be discouraged or panic. Instead, it should cause us to self-evaluate, seek God in prayer, and sacrificially collaborate more intentionally for gospel-focused city outreach and community renewal - for God's glory and the good of the city.

We Really Do Need Each Other

Churches and Christians have one singular mission and message - make disciples of Jesus. 

For many of us, being on mission to go into all the world to be gospel witnesses and make disciples of Jesus in all nations feels like a task that is too big, too complicated. For some, it's a challenge just to go across the street or across town to take the gospel where Jesus is not known and worshiped. 

We want to help churches break through the fatigue, challenges, and barriers to making disciples of Jesus and being on mission in West Georgia. We want to equip, mobilize, and send out missionaries from local churches to partner with area faith-based organizations for gospel-focused city outreach and community renewal - for God's glory and the good of the city.

But if we collaborate for gospel-focused
city outreach and community renewal:

1. The gospel of Jesus will be declared and demonstrated in our city. 

2. The faith-based community will work together to makes disciples of Jesus. 

3. Our neighbors will be loved, cared for and served by local churches and community partners.

4. Communities in our city will be transformed through prayer and the good work of churches          and community partnerships.
