LIVING THE DREAM…
SO THAT OTHER PEOPLE MAY KNOW THE LORD
We firmly believe that if the Lord brings a great revival to the greater D.C. area, it can change the world. When hearts are changed among the most powerful and influential people anywhere, it will demand global attention. The Church is God’s plan to bring life to the perishing, but one person cannot reach everyone. This is why we planted Impact Church 10 years ago.
The Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-21) commands us to go out into the nations. Impact Church has the special privilege of serving the Northern Virginia community, and the nations are here. Whether it’s a family immigrating here in search of a new life, a refugee fleeing turmoil in his/her native land, or an international student staying here for a season, we strongly believe that God has called us to go and make disciples with all the people, especially in one of the most diverse areas in the country.
However, this doesn’t stop us from going overseas! We have been blessed with so many partnerships and experiences with our brothers and sisters overseas. As we seek to make disciples and plant churches here, we want to cast the same vision of multiplication around the world, increasing every possible chance to share the hope of Christ with this world until He returns!
Whatever this looks like in your life, I pray you will be found obedient. The mission has never been more urgent. Will you please pray about being a part of this?
Living the Dream,
Lead Pastor of IMPACT church
