What if, instead of always talking about love,
Christians actually rolled up their sleeves and got their hands dirty?
What if we prayed the Lord’s Prayer with sincerity,
beseeching God to bring the attributes of heaven to earth?
What if we, the church, were designed to be the vessels of His answer,
to echo the love of God?
If Christians stepped up to the plate,
there would be no foster care crisis.
If Christians exercised their faith outside of a 2-hour Sunday service,
homelessness would not exist.
If Christians were to actually pick up the ball and step onto the field,
they would creatively conquer the darkness that
surrounds the evils of pornography, bullying, drug abuse,
marital infidelity, and a host of other social ills.
Before the world listens to the Gospel message,
they’ll need to see and experience the joy of Christ
through the ways in which Christians tangibly love them,
just as Christ would.
At Echo Church, we dream...
We dream of a Spirit-led movement
that is slow enough to care for everyone in the church
and fast enough to reach Missoula with an unconditional, crazy love.
We dream of a Kingdom movement.
We dream of a church that is partnering with other life-giving,
gospel-preaching churches in Missoula.
We dream of an earth
covered with heavenly attributes, as Jesus had instructed us to pray for:
attributes such as justice, peace, compassion,
relief from pain, release from bondage,
and extraordinary love.
We are not a typical church.
If you are a Christian...
we ask that you keep an open mind.
You will undoubtedly have questions, so ask!
Email Pastor JD Partain and have coffee.
If you are not religious,
or maybe simply unsure of God, faith, eternal salvation...
We do not push or sell religion.
But we will listen, answer questions, extend a helping hand
and simply be friends.
Thanks for your interest. God bless your journey.
