The need for transformation is universal and constant. The need for a contemplative life to undergird a life of passion and compassion is a discipline of faith in Jesus Christ. Even joy and worship is a discipline that yields needed grace. These disciplines of faith, a multitude that the might be, are lived out individually and in community. And we believe that when we draw near to God, he is faithful in his promise to draw near to us. We also know that God surprises us with his heart of a good Father and that believing in his goodness even in the face of the evils of the world is ultimately the breath that we need to pray, endure, and flourish while His glory transforms us and the world around us.
UNVEILED HOUSE CHURCH
Goal: That House of Dreams would consist of intentional communities/house churches that express a passionate and compassionate devotion to know Christ and to serve one another. The ethic of these communities would be love, reconciliation, prayer, worship, creative expression and mercy. Scripture says: For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself...And he gave us this filled with wonder message of reconciliation. So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!” For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right (reconciled) with God through Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:19). And Jesus said it this way: "I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me... 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.' (Matthew 25:40)
Currently we have 11 house churches in Tondo and are raising up pastors among women and men. Every week we share the gospel and love of Christ to communities.
STORYTELLING GODS STORY.
Goal: To hear the deep and miraculous ways that God intervenes in communities. To know that the expression of this is a sacred discipline and to engage it. Together our stories and reflections, questions and struggles, victories and dreams touched by Christ and expressed is the foundation for another generation and community's resilient faith.
One generation commends your works to another;
they tell of your mighty acts.
They speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty
and I will meditate on your wonderful works. They tell of the power of your awesome works
and I will proclaim your great deeds. Psalm 145:4-6
HUMAN DREAMERs, HEROes & DREAMERS: DISCIPLESHIP & SPONSORSHIP
Goal: to be tenacious in relying on the power of the Holy Spirit in the life of believers, to cultivate the capacity in a person and community to worship in song, prayer, and praise. To cultivate the capacity to preach which at its simplest is the capacity to remember the word, what it means to us, and to share this in light of the story of what Jesus has done. To cultivate the capacity to desire personal righteousness without legality but righteousness with peace, mercy, and liberty in the Holy Spirit. To cultivate joy, expression, and creativity as witnesses of transformation in Jesus Christ. To live as vulnerable humans who seek to dream with God. (For more details about sponsorships see link above.)
CHURCH TO TABLE: FEEDING WITH DIGNITY & CREATING COMMUNITY IN MIND
Goal: Isolation has been evident in the world lately with the visibility of recent suicides among celebrities and among nations. We encourage people to host dinners on our behalf, in their own countries and homes to raise funds for us to create meals that honor the least of these, hear their hearts, strengthen bonds. It is our heart that the dinners here or abroad will be a divine opportunity to hear a heart that is hurting and to share life with one another.
