It’s all about Jesus.
Revive is a new gospel-centered, missional church in Morristown NJ. We are committed to telling people the good news of Jesus Christ. We long to see all the people of the church equipped as missionaries, filled with passion and vision for the powerful, redemptive work God can do here in North Jersey.
The Bible tells the story of a good and loving God actively pursuing the people who rejected Him, broken by their own sin and suffering under the curse of death, in order to reconcile them to Himself. The truth we find in 2 Corinthians 5 sums it up well:
17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. 18 All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. 20 Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. 21 For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. – 2 Corinthians 5:17-21 (ESV)
“Church” is the word the Bible uses to describe the gathered people of God. We believe the church is the mission of God – that He has entrusted us with the ministry of reconciliation through the good news of Jesus Christ. The mission is God’s glory in saving sinners, and everything we do is for that purpose.
And that is why at Revive we long to see a local community of people Loving Jesus, Making Disciples, & Planting Churches.
