C. I want to talk about the 12 stones of Impact church and what they represent to us
D. The 12 stones i am going to talk about are foundational in all we do, and all we will do to bring heaven to earth x3

1. We deal with the REINS:

We allow God to deal with the things holding us back, and we work together to endure difficult periods and to prepare ourselves for the plans and purposes God has for our lives.


We go and make disciples, striving to advance the kingdom of God and to live according to the teachings of Jesus.

3. We need His POWER: 

Jesus helped people out of their conditions and positions, empowering them for a better life. Through the Holy Spirit and the Word of God, we can walk in that same power.

4. We express JOY and THANKS:

We laugh, celebrate, applaud, and enjoy life! We show our gratitude and happiness to God and the world!

5. We preach the GOSPEL:

Through our songs, services, words, lives, and communications with the world, we celebrate and share the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

6. We protect UNITY:

We do not welcome nor tolerate the poisons of gossip, complaining, backbiting, discord, or division.

7. We see with eyes of HOPE:

God has a plan for His church, and no weapon formed against us will prosper! We pray that all see their purpose and the plans God has for Grace and Forgiveness.

8. We love PEOPLE:

All of them! Backgrounds, shapes, colors, sizes, education, salaries, single, married, young, old, churched, dechurched, or unchurched.

9. We minister to FAMILIES:

The first ministry God created was family. We are dedicated to ministering to the entire family, which in turn builds a healthy church.

10. We break the BOX:

The box was meant for those who refuse to think big! We serve a big God, able to do exceedingly and abundantly above all we could ever ask or think. We cannot be scared to be where we have never been before.

11. We serve in EXCELLENCE:

Our mindset should always be to bring honor to God. Therefore, in everything we do, we do it with a spirit of excellence.

12. We speak to MOUNTAINS:

We are agents of change in this world, designated by God to carry out His mission of new life in every aspect of our culture.
