Church and Baseball

Already/Not Yet

We think of Church as the building we meet in, but in the Scriptures, a "church" is a group of people called together to proclaim the Good News that Jesus has risen from the dead. We can do that anywhere, anytime. Church can - and should - happen every day, all over our community!

From Series: "Already/Not Yet"

Jesus' resurrection wasn't the end of the story; it was the beginning of God's new creation. The Resurrection is God's first step toward reclaiming creation, and we get to be a part of it. By choosing to follow Jesus, we leave the old reality dominated by sin and death and step into God's kingdom, where we find life. This new life has already begun. And yet we're also still waiting, because God's kingdom has not yet come in full. How do we live in the tension between the Already and the Not Yet? This series explores who God calls the Church to be, and how the Holy Spirit enables us to join in God's mission in the space between the Resurrection and the Second Coming. We're not just waiting around for God to show up. God is already here and working, so we're joining in!
