Move Towards the Mess

Life is messy. Relationships are messy. People are messy. And God came for messy people. Jesus welcomed everyone, regardless of their mess. And as a church being the body of Jesus, we welcome everyone, regardless of how messy their lives are. At, everyone is accepted, because we believe the church is a place for messy people.

One thing that we all have in common—whether you're religious or Christian or some other religion—the thing we all have in common is life is just messy. The mess that brings us together, the thing that we have in common is actually the mess that brought God near. For God so loved the mess...

Don’t miss the point—Jesus didn’t walk away from the mess. He walked towards it. He walked away from religion and towards the mess. It seems like the messier people got in the Bible, the more Jesus embraced them—not ran away from them.

And because Jesus embraced them--made them belong--their beliefs and behaviors started to change. It is impossible to be around Jesus without changing. So everyone is welcome. Everyone is accepted. But growing people change. Hanging out with Jesus will change you from the inside out.
