“And when they saw Him, they worshiped Him,
but some doubted.” —Matthew 28:17
Don’t put the resurrection away for the year, just because Easter has passed.
Commit to reminding yourself of its rescue and hope morning after morning after morning.
This message morphed into a quasi “members class,” as we talked through RENEW’s vision, values, and mission in light of the resurrection of Jesus.

Message title: Living the Resurrection
Scriptures: Matthew 28:17-20; Romans 8:11
Preacher: Jeff Patterson
Our vision: we exist to RENEW the city spiritually, socially, and culturally
Our values: we are a family of missionary servants seeking to embrace and embody the grace, renewal, hope and love of Jesus our King
Our mission: we want to introduce our neighborhoods and cities to Jesus
In order to fulfill this vision, values, and mission we must undergo three ‘conversions’:
- follow Jesus
- as a family
- of missionary servants
17 And when they saw Him they worshiped Him, but some doubted. 18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
If the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.
