Transforming Seattle through Redemptive Communities.

It’s a big vision, but shouldn’t vision be big. If this is what we have our sights on we will accomplish so much before we get there. It seems that our vision has to be bigger than us; something that we can’t accomplish on our own. We can’t transform Seattle on our own. But what if because we are faithful to God’s calling on our lives, Seattle becomes a modern day Antioch. The Antioch of the Bible where the disciples were first called Christians, the city where people first started serious “gentile evangelism,” the city where “great multitudes” of people came to Christ, the city of Antioch – the city that sent out what we consider the first missionaries, Barnabas, Saul, and John Mark, to start churches in the Roman Gentile world.

What if Seattle is Antioch?
