History of Serve the City

More About Us

A WORD FROM JESUS

“…and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand.”
Matthew 12:25b

OUR ACT OF OBEDIENCE

We desire to cooperate with the John 17 prayer of Jesus that we might be perfected in unity that the world will KNOW God sent Jesus and loves them!

OUR STATEMENT OF FAITH

We are a cross denominational coalition of evangelical Christ Followers with the Lausanne Covenant as our common Statement of Faith.

OUR NAME COMES FROM JEREMIAH 29:7 (NASB)

“Seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf;  for in its welfare you will have welfare.”

 

WE ARE BETTER TOGETHER!
We believe God has called us together for this time and this hour.  In John 12:27 Jesus set the example for us when He said: “Now my soul has become troubled; and what shall I say, ‘Father save Me from this hour?’ But for this purpose I came to this hour. Father, glorify Thy name.”

As a coalition we have an ever increasing “resource library” for partners to access. We celebrate our unity twice a year at “An Evening of Worship and Prayer.” Our leadership gathers (September to May) at our monthly luncheons for fellowship, prayer, testimonies, vision casting, and of course great food. We co-labor in our prayer, care and share initiatives. We are better together!
