To help people know God, find freedom, discover purpose, and make a difference
THE CHURCH I SEE
Pastor Rhett Barden
I SEE A CHURCH of influence united around the cause of Christ, who shakes the heavens and the earth through the power of prayer. I SEE A CHURCH who loves God’s word and whose worship captures God’s attention stirring His heart to move. I SEE A CHURCH that exists to make Jesus famous, who is extravagantly radiant and that no building can contain. I SEE A CHURCH full of love, joy, and laughter, enjoying life together in community and who is filled with hope and an unexplainable peace. I SEE A CHURCH whose love and generosity knows no end. I SEE A CHURCH expanding like a wildfire into every fiber of its communities and that every day leads someone to experience the love and grace of Jesus. I SEE A CHURCH whose youth are so passionate and vibrant in their love for Jesus that they transform their friends, schools, city, nation, and world for Christ.
I SEE A CHURCH where songs of freedom are birthed from the heart of God sweeping the nations and ushering people into the presence of God. I SEE A CHURCH compassionate for people, refreshing the forgotten, loving the lonely, healing the hurting, and freeing the enslaved. I SEE A CHURCH consumed with developing and empowering generations of leaders. I SEE A CHURCH producing and planting life-giving churches around the world. I SEE A CHURCH discovering and living out their God-given purpose and design, full of the power of the Holy Spirit and defying the impossible with audacious faith believing that God can do anything. I SEE A CHURCH who will do everything short of sin while reaching for the one. THE CHURCH I SEE is One Life Church.
