To Reach, Teach, and Empower
Seven years ago, 25 people met in the Elks Lodge on Ames Ave in Rutherford to worship. 7 years later we see approximately 400 people attending Church Alive each weekend. In order for us to continue to reach, disciple and train leaders we know a permanent church home is essential.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF the BELIEVE & BUILD foundation?
Our dream is to reach as many people for Christ as possible, see them discipled and making an impact in every sphere of life. To effectively do this our goal will be to do three main things:
- RAISE FUNDS FOR REAL ESTATE
As our church continues growing, the need for upgrading our current facilities will rise. It is through this foundation that we will be expanding our arsenal to be better equipped to build where we currently are, reach people in our local community, and continue building the church from within.
2. CHURCH EXPANSION
Our mission will never change, one of them being REACHing. As we aim and continue to reach the lost and the community, we will be growing in numbers. As we grow in numbers, we will need facilities for them and it is through this foundation that we will be raising money to build campuses and continue our mission.
3. GLOBAL OUTREACH
As we continue our partnership with Love-N-Care Ministries and other great outreach ministries, we will continue reaching the lost across the globe as well as provide for the needs of others be that financially, with food donations, and more. So far we have build 2 church in India and we aim on building more as the years progress. For more information, please visit our MISSIONS page.
HOW WILL A NEW FACILITY HELP US REACH MORE PEOPLE FOR CHRIST?
A new facility will help every different ministry at Church ALIVE. Our children’s, middle school and youth ministries can all be impacted incredibly by a space that is vibrant and fixed. Our capacity to effectively disciple men and women by providing learning and equipping courses at times that are convenient for us will also be a huge asset. Finally, a new building won’t be about us. It will be about providing a stable location where we will build bridges to the community by meeting real, practical needs that become spring boards to introduce people to the love of Christ.
How Much Have We Raised So Far?
Over a 2 year period, the Believe and Build Foundation has raised over $500,000 which we are very thankful for the many who sacrificed for the cause of Jesus. Starting in February 2018 we will annually “believe and Build” together as we pray and give generously to the expansion of the mission of Church Alive.
A building is not our vision, but it will be a tool that God will use time and time again to see many people impacted by the love of Christ. We desire to see more people come to Christ, more people discipled, more marriages healthy and whole, more people off drugs, more people raised up to be who God has called them to be! We are believing for Church ALIVE to have an incredible facility that would not just house our growing church, but also be a place for the community to come and have real needs met, and through these ministries come and experience the love of Christ.
How can I help?
First, pray fervently that this would be an incredible time of God’s blessing in our church as we embark on “BELIEVE & BUILD” so others may live. Secondly, make a commitment to learn as much about the campaign as possible and support the vision of our church. Thirdly, give sacrificially. It won’t be equal giving, but equal sacrifice that enables Church ALIVE to reach its goals. The vision God has given us requires faith and sacrifice. We have the privilege to see God’s Kingdom come in the hearts of people both now and for generations to come.
