What is a New Kind of Church
We Take Love Seriously
Something we noticed about Jesus is that we talked a lot about love. Then we looked at our own lives and realized the impact that love, especially God’s love, has. Everything we do is about helping you experience love and give love – so that you can have a love based life.
Whole is the Goal
We want you to live a whole life. Something the Bible calls shalom. Jesus had it and we can, too. Shalom is the Hebrew word for ‘peace,’ but it’s a special kind of peace – the type that comes from fullness, harmony, and connection. Things like sin, worry, fear, loneliness, and anger are the opposite of shalom. They are the result of brokenness, shame, secrets, and isolation. We believe that Jesus is healing all that, to bring us closer to him and deeper into being whole.
You can do it, we can help
We believe that God has big plans for you. Plans to change your life, your family, your workplace, and even your world. That twinge you feel when you know things aren’t exactly right, the anger you feel at injustice, your broken heart for the bullied – that’s your missional destiny reaching out. We’re here to help you become the person God always intended you to be and do the things that God wants you to do. You can do it; we can help.
Doubt is the Doorway to Faith
Everybody has doubts and this is a good thing. Even though doubting can be uncomfortable and even painful – it’s part of life and it is part of faith. Throughout the Bible, we see person after person having their doubts and misgivings about this God who was calling out to them. But here is the great part – these doubts, like ours, are opportunities for faith to grow, expand and evolve. Here at Resonate we make room for your doubts. We even jump into doubt with you. Not to rescue you, but to join you on your faith journey. So dust off those questions, read people who challenge your beliefs and join a church that helping each other live a life without all the answers. Faith isn’t seeing, it’s confidence in the darkness. 2 Cor. 5:7
Our values are the how to why of what we do
Have you ever seen a plant that needed water? Or one that had too little sun, maybe too much? Even the most green-thumb-challenged person can tell when a plant is healthy. But with people, it’s a lot harder. We believe that God wants you to have an exceptionally healthy soul. A soul that bursting with things like: joy, peace, compassion, love, gratitude, and all the good stuff the Spirit promises. At Resonate, we’re convinced that these all come from a healthy soul. We are committed to having a complete and healthy soul.
“Names nowhere, fingerprints everywhere,” is one of our mottos at Resonate. It means that we are big on impact and low on fame. In Psalm 37, we learn that humility is the gateway to shalom (a full and joyful life). It makes sense, people with big egos are often frustrated, flustered, hurried, and afraid. None of that sounds like the type of life we want to live. The only thing standing between you and a life of peace, love, and joy is your ego. Here at Resonate, we are devoted to pursuing humility (not humiliation – that’s a different thing entirely)
We want to pour power into you. And why not? You are God’s gift to the world after all. It is our opinion that God has given you gifts and opportunities to love people and make the world a better place. But you’re going to need some help. You’ll need coaches and cheerleaders; friends and support; to make this happen. That is where we step in, we want to help you fulfill your passion and potential in ministry.
