We exist to create a movement of churches to connect the disconnected to Jesus.
The mission of The Kairos Network is the same mission Jesus gave his followers: 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.
The gospel is our motivation and the principle means through which our work is accomplished. This is demonstrated by our commitment to preach, teach, and live out the new life in Christ by the Holy Spirit’s enabling, planters and pastors who exegete the scriptures with Christ at the center, demonstrated by churches that seek to contextualize word and sacrament ministry for their unique cultural settings.
The vision of The Kairos Network is create a community of authentic believers and to witness a city transformed by the life changing reality of the gospel, as people come to know Jesus as their lord and savior.
The following are the core beliefs of The Kairos Network based on the foundational truths taught in the Bible. Our teachings and ministry are all rooted in and flow out of these biblical doctrines. These are the same doctrines that have been expressed through the Apostles and Nicene creeds that have been in use in the Church throughout history.
There is one eternally existing God who has three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is the creator of all that exists, both visible and invisible, and is therefore worthy of all glory and praise. God is perfect in love, power, holiness, goodness, knowledge, wisdom, justice, and mercy. He is unchangeable and therefore is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
God has revealed himself to us through the holy scriptures, through all of creation itself, and through his son, Jesus Christ, who is the visible image of the invisible God.
Humans, both male and female, were created in God's image for His glory. The first humans, Adam and Eve, were created without sin and appointed as caretakers of the rest of God's creations.
When Adam and Eve chose not to obey God, they ceased to be what they were made to be and became distorted images of God. This caused them to fall out of fellowship with God, and fractured all of creation ever since that time.
Jesus Christ came to reconcile us with God. He lived a life without sin and willingly died on the cross to pay the penalty for our transgressions. God raised him from the dead and now, by grace, offers as a free gift eternal life to all who follow Christ, by faith, as their Lord and Savior. That is why salvation can be found in Christ alone.
The Church is meant to be the visible body of Christ, sent into the world to glorify God and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ is returning one day to judge both the living and the dead and to usher in the fullness of God's kingdom on earth.
