The Preeminence of Christ
Above everything else, we are committed to the preeminence of Jesus Christ in all things. Jesus, the matchlessly beautiful Son of God who was crucified to redeem the world and raised from the dead, is the unchallenged Sovereign of the universe and the only name by which men are saved. As such, all that we believe and do centers around this Man. Jesus Christ alone is our magnificent obsession, and He alone is worthy to be worshiped for all of eternity.
Unrelenting Prayer and Passionate Worship
We are committed to relentlessly calling forth and training leaders who are fully given to a lifestyle of fervent prayer and passionate worship. Our desire is to see a radical shift in this generation which moves beyond prayer meetings to a culture defined by persistent prayer.
Centrality of God’s Word
The Bible is the infallible, inerrant, and inspired Word of the one and only God. The Scriptures alone provide the entire basis for the mission, vision, strategy, training and life within the Luke18 Project community.
Through the empowering presence of the Holy Spirit, we seek to live our lives as radical disciples of Jesus Christ as defined by the Scriptures. Our leaders will be continually provoked to pursue the lifestyle of obedience to Jesus through living out the Sermon on the Mount on a daily basis. This expression of radical obedience will express itself through disciplines like fasting, simplicity, and radical giving.
The great need of the hour is leaders who have been trained as “friends of the Bridegroom” and “burning and shining lamps” who bear witness to the light of the bright Morning Star. We desire to see a generation of young leaders emerge who are not focused on their own ministry successes, but the exaltation of Christ. We will intentionally train leaders in this leadership paradigm through hands-on leadership development, training, and life mentoring.
Bold Proclamation of Christ and Him Crucified
Rather than ministry focused on the felt needs of the moment, we desire to restore the pure and unadulterated gospel of Christ and Him crucified in our generation.
Knowing that we can go farther together than by ourselves, we are committed to raising up vibrant communities in prayer and worship.
