ILLUMINE GREENWOOD

(There’s a full Google Calendar at the bottom of the page, if that helps you.)

Hello! This page serves as the hub for the core development work that’s happening in the Greenwood/Broadview/Bitter Lake neighborhoods of Seattle (on the campus located on Greenwood Ave, to be known as Illumine Greenwood.)

If you’re interested in being a part of this core group (what’s a core group? Think “signers of the Declaration of Independence” but more epic), would you mind sending a quick email to kentr@illuminechurch.com? I’ll make sure to be in touch with you as soon as possible.

Below, you’ll find an archive of the Core Value sessions.

CORE VALUE 1 | SALVATION

Nothing saves anyone except for Jesus. There can't not be Jesus life, death, and resurrection.

CORE VALUE 2 | CONVERSION

Illumine exists to find the unchurched and de-churched. We make decisions based not on those who have been here longest, but on those who are not here yet.

CORE VALUE 3 | Progress

A disciple grows by engaging with God’s promises in worship, education, and community service. Worship yields rest. Education yields wisdom. Community Service yields purpose.

Together, they help a person see life better.

CORE VALUE 4 | SERVICE

Serve until it hurts. In the hierarchy of God’s kingdom, the more people you serve, the higher you are.

CORE VALUE 5 | Relationships

Real, heart-level connections are part of the purpose of the church - and they aren't able to be manipulated or forced. Fellowship is lay-led (not staff-led) and organic.

 

CORE VALUE 6 | COMMUNITY

We can do more together than we can alone.

 

CORE VALUE 7 | PLANTING

More churches make more disciples.

 

CORE VALUE 8 | PERMISSION

We give permission for Christians to DO within our contexts of ministry.

 

CORE VALUE 9 | IDEALS

Ideals (not abuses) guide vision, and demographics guide details.
