WHO WE ARE

Resonate is called to become a catalyst that provokes a missional movement to bring wholeness to our city for Jesus Christ.


 

  • We’re here to make disciples of Jesus who make disciples of Jesus.
  • We’re committed to doing things well.
  • We like to try new things.
  • We like it loud.
  • We are honest about our flaws and failures.
  • We keep things simple so we can stay focused on things that matter.
  • We eat a lot and like to have fun together.

 


GOSPEL MOVEMENT

What do we mean when we say we’re a Gospel-centered church?


THE GOSPEL'S CENTRALITY

The Gospel (the Good News) is that though we are sinners, God offers us grace through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. By putting our faith in Him, we are saved from God’s wrath for our sin, given new life here on Earth, and will spend eternity with Him after we die. This is part of God’s great plan to redeem creation and has implications for us not only as individuals, but for the whole world. It should change the way we relate to God, others, and the way we live our lives.

 

The Gospel is not just the A-B-Cs of Christianity, but the A to Z. We are not saved through the Gospel and then required to maintain our salvation through obedience, but the Gospel is the way we grow (Gal. 3:1-3) and are renewed (Col. 1:6). It is the solution to each problem, the key to each closed door, the power to face every roadblock of life (Rom. 1:16-17).

THE GOSPEL'S CORE MEANING

The Gospel is not that we do good deeds or try to be righteous people for God in order to get His love or forgiveness. Instead, the Gospel is that He demonstrates His righteousness through Jesus Christ and then freely credits His righteousness to us (2 Cor. 5:21). The Gospel is not that “it doesn’t matter what you believe, as long as you’re good,” but that “it doesn’t matter if you’re good, as long as you believe in Christ as your Savior.”

 

This has endless implications for us. Every Sunday, and in every aspect of our ministry, we seek to know the truths and live the implications of the Gospel.

Everything we do at Resonate is meant to put God on display by focusing us more and more on the beauty of the Gospel.
