A Family of Multi-Cultural Faith-Communities
We envision a Church of interdependent faith-communities grafted together in life and mission for the glory of God and the advancement of his kingdom.
The goal of this vision is to demonstrate the Kingdom of God by living out the reality of our unity.
Scriptural foundation: John 17:20-23; Ephesians 4:11-13; Revelation 7:9
- We serve as a powerful witness to our community of the unified church body that Jesus prayed for in John 17:20-23.
My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one—I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.
- We celebrate the diversity of the Spirit’s gifts and in humility commit ourselves to learn and grow in mutual discipleship.
So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists ,the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.
- We are endeavoring to become a beautiful picture of the bride of Christ spoken of in Revelation 7:9.
“After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands…”
History of the Movement
The vision was received by Midway Covenant in 2020. Ministerio International Jesucristo Fuentes de Vida, already a long-term renter, adopted the vision and became a partner in 2021. The Marshallese United Church of God became a partner in 2022, followed by the Hanaro (Korean) Presbyterian Church in 2023. Through mutual discernment in a relationship of growth, we walk together in unity to advance the kingdom of God.
Each of these congregations has its own pastors, Leadership Team and budget; they worship God in their mother languages and in ways unique to their own culture.
Believing that unity is something we cannot achieve through our own efforts but only accomplished through the power of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:13-14), we…
