The King & His Kingdom

When Jesus came to earth, he didn't come to bring a church, he came to bring a kingdom. 

Mark 1:14 After John was put in prison, Jesus went into Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God. 15 “The time has come,” he said. “The kingdom of God has come near. Repent and believe the good news!”

Before calling anyone to follow him, before he even met those who would become his apostles, Jesus announced that God's Kingdom had come near.  From this point on, Jesus would talk about the kingdom over 100 times and after he rose from the dead, he spent 40 days with his followers and "spoke about the kingdom of God."

The question needs to be asked, why isn't the church more focused on the kingdom of God than it is?  In our age, we hear sermon after sermon about salvation and about what God has in store for his people.  While these things are important, they don't seem to have been Jesus's focus.

Join us over the next few weeks (possibly months) as we delve into the Kingdom & what it means to live as citizens of the kingdom!
