My prayer for all of them is that they will be one, just as you and I are one…” John 17:21
We are a network of Christian congregational, marketplace, and ministry leaders dedicated to the growth of God’s Kingdom of Lancaster County through relational partnership.
Lancaster County transformed by the gospel of Jesus Christ.
To attain spiritual and social transformation of Lancaster County, we actively cultivate partnerships to:
PRAY: fill the region with continual united prayer and worship
WITNESS: communicate the gospel of Jesus Christ to every person in each local community and culture group
LOVE: mobilize initiatives to transform our communities with the love of God
PROTECT: promote biblical unity, reconcile relationships, and provide spiritual discernment for the well-being of the Church.
What is meant by “regional church”? Quite simply, the “regional church” (as it pertains to Lancaster County) is the Body of Christ in the county of Lancaster as seen from a “heaven’s eye view”. When God looks upon His Church in our region, He sees more than our separate camps, communions, confessions and councils. He sees a “regional church”, made up of believers in every community, every church and every walk of life. The Regional Church of Lancaster County believes that the most powerful witness of God’s love (and therefore the most practical and effective evangelistic strategy given to us by our Father) is the relational biblical unity of His people (John 17:23). It is the prayer of Jesus for the unity of God’s people that envisions us and keeps us committed to our vision.
We understand a network to be any group of individuals or organizations, sharing common interests, who regularly communicate with each other to enhance their purposes, respectively.
A partnership is any group of individuals or organizations, sharing a common interest, who regularly communicate, plan, and work together to achieve a common vision beyond the capacity of any one of the individual partners.
As partners we are dedicated to be purposeful and authentic in our relationships.
THE MOST POWERFUL WITNESS OF GOD’S LOVE THE RELATIONAL BIBLICAL UNITY FOR WHICH JESUS PRAYED.
