Apex is a network of community churches. There are three basic practices that define what we do: gather, grow, go.
Stories shape and define us. The story that defines us, the Church, is the Gospel; God’s saving and recreating action in the person and work of Jesus on our behalf — for the world. We’re called to both tell others and recall to ourselves this story. Paul tells us, “Let the word of Christ (message of Jesus) dwell in you richly….” (Col 3:16). When the Church gathers, we remind each other who God is, who we are and what He’s up to in this world. One way we do this is in our weekend gatherings. Every weekend, we gather together to recall, remember and share His story and who we are in light of it. We do this with hymns, songs, teaching and baptisms, so we might go out and be who we are in His story.
Members in house churches are encouraged to explore their gifting and talents for the good of the body. A house church will have a mix of all ages — this is very intentional. At Apex, you will not find women’s or men’s groups or groups based on marital status or life stage. Instead you will find diverse groups of people representative of the area in which they live. Many house churches engage in ministry in their neighborhood. The house church movement provides opportunities for believers to speak God’s truth into one another’s lives. As believers, we become His ambassadors of love and service in the network of contacts which God has placed us each in.
Christ tells us in Matthew 24:14, that the gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. That end is the return of our King. Every follower of Christ is sent, every follower is a missionary, every follower is given the call to advance the Kingdom of God. The Going ministry is here to help you maintain that Kingdom focus, empowering you to obey God’s call on your life.
