One Heart is Jesus' heart for the Kingdom! Way to go, Howie! Joe👍
I loved meeting Howard and Steve at the 100 Cities Summit. We share the same heart and passion!! (www.j17ministries.org)
We Can Never Lose Our Inheritance in Christ Jesus Spiritually hungry disciples of Jesus Christ will find that I Peter Chapter 1 is packed with spiritual nourishment for those persecuted, hunted, and scattered men and women. It was a difficult day, as it is for many today. Persecution can distract you and divert you from Christ – and cool your love for Jesus and the Gospel – and baffle your thinking. You are chosen - you are different - you have been set apart so that you can obey - you have been sprinkled (or sealed) with the blood of Jesus. Verse 3 - Peter refers to this essential fact - to that day when we were born again. Let that fact encourage you to praise the living God Who has saved us and who loves us. We can count it a joy that we have this privilege of suffering, to some degree, for the Name of Jesus Christ. We thank God and bless God. Peter has found the reality of salvation. This is not our lasting home. We are pilgrims, on a journey – passing through. This is the man who stood up on the Day of Pentecost and spoke so clearly and powerfully under that anointing of the Holy Spirit. Some people laughed and ridiculed and mocked, as they did not know what God was doing. Peter explained and proclaimed the truth courageously and boldly. With an uncertain future before us in the world - we need this living hope - this real assurance which is so vital and vibrant - and which breathes certainty into our lives. All this is possible because of GOD’S GREAT MERCY! Death has lost its sting. It nips a little and the memory of that nip can remain for some time - but death has lost its sting. A hope that is divorced from the new birth is a forlorn hope. Disillusionment can set in when man sees he cannot change the world! The heart of the human problem is the problem of the human heart! The Middle East – only God through Jesus Christ can resolve this. Your inheritance will be kept for you, and you will be kept for your inheritance. This reward can never perish - or spoil - or fade away - nor vanish. Whatever bankers may have done over these past years with interest rates – investments – or inheritances – nobody can touch this one! It is indestructible – non perishable – non spoilable – unfading. It is reserved for you. It cannot be given to someone else. Peter’s writing is saturated with the significance of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. To be alive physically you have to be physically born – to be alive spiritually you have to be born again. Paul speaks about this experience as resurrection – God came to us when we were dead in trespasses and sin and raised us up from all that – raised from the dead! This is the essence of our Christian Faith and Christian Life. The essential element of our new birth is a human impossibility – it is all of God – by His Grace and Mercy. God had done this for them! Verse 5 - You are shielded - protected - by the power of God. This inheritance is being kept in heaven for you, and this will always be the situation until Jesus Christ returns - He is coming back. We have an imperishable inheritance. No catastrophe can touch this inheritance – no sin can defile it – no decay can change it. This is kept by God in heaven for you – shielded means, ‘being kept’. These truths need frequent repetition today, because so very few people know anything about what the Scriptures teach. It is a great advantage to preach and teach the whole of the Bible, and to do so systematically, because it presents people with the whole counsel of God, over a period, and prevents the preacher or teacher from riding his personal hobbyhorse, or taking his favourite passages over and over again. “Almighty God, we thank You for the Bible – the whole of it – for every part of it. We thank You for Your Word through which You speak to men and women – and to boys and girls. In a day when many hardly know anything at all about the Bible, break through again, and raise up preachers and teachers who will open up Your Holy Word – we pray in Jesus Name. Amen” (This week's "Word from Scotland" - previous pieces may be found at Studylight.org and liveasif.org in the 'Archives' section - warmest greetings in Christ Jesus.)
Don't miss out, mark your calendars for 9.22.18 when the Church of Metro Washington will experience a heightened sense of God's presence and connectedness in unity with Christ followers from across the region.

This is wonderful, Howard, thanks so much for the notice. I love this!
May the Lord God continue to grant you the strength, wisdom, the character of Jesus Christ, and the provisions needed to glorify Him in the ministry! In Jesus name!!!
Which Do You Want – the Law or the Promise? Do we not wonder sometimes just what God is doing? We are in this challenging Chapter 3 of the letter to the disciples of Jesus Christ in Galatia. Paul is seeking to answer this difficult question – what is the place and purpose of the Commandments and where does the mercy and grace and love and forgiveness of God fit into all this? It became a real problem then and for many it remains a serious issue today. False teachers had thrown and shaken these disciples of Jesus, and wherever they appear they continue to throw and shake and even undermine. There are many false teachers around. The Commandments have a limited application. They can prevent you from becoming worse, regarding your behaviour, but they cannot make you righteous in the eyes of God. For righteousness in the sight of God we need a Saviour – a Redeemer – a Rescuer – and God the Father provided Jesus Christ Who fulfilled that role completely – and He still does. Here we see something of the wisdom of God, and how He knows what He is doing. He always does. Now know that. Believe that. As disciples of Jesus Christ we should be maturing to that stage where we do not need the laws of God regarding behaviour. Some people may always need them, because they just refuse to mature. How many leaders wish they had paid attention to what God has said regarding adultery? How many businessmen wish they had listened to, "You shall not STEAL"? Rules are needed for order. In school, walk on this side of the corridor - behave at the table - and then one day, that child is trusted with the keys of the home. Rules shut you in - limiting you – but the key - the promise - the Gospel - releases you. That is why the law is inferior to the promise. Which do you want – the law or the promise? The law was given through angels, and through Moses, to the people, but the promise was given directly to Abraham from God - and to us directly, through Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I have found that I keep having to explain who Jesus Christ is and what Jesus Christ does – because so few are aware of His Sovereign role – let people see and know who Jesus Christ is! Verse 20 - If you use a middle man - a mediator - you have a go-between - you are almost negotiating - and in one sense that was true - "If you do - I will bless". The promise is not like that. It is a Covenant. God speaks. It is one sided - no negotiating - and no 'ifs'. In these ‘modern times’ many people are unwilling to appreciate that truth – they want to negotiate with God and perhaps even argue with God. In one sense, that can be all right provided we understand that we will not ‘win’ that ‘argument’. I cannot bargain with God. I cannot negotiate with God. I cannot bargain with my Creator and Saviour and Redeemer and Lord. The law is there to deal with our wrong doing. If passing laws could improve people, we would be perfect, when you consider what Holyrood, Westminster, and Europe, have passed over these past few years. You cannot make an honest man by Act of Parliament. The trouble is due to SIN. Paul is saying here - no law can make you good - but the promise of God can transform a man - rescue a man - empower a man – and equip a man. People know when they are on the run from the law - or from GOD. The truth shall set you FREE. I am the truth. This whole and clear and simple teaching is to be found John Chapter 8 and verse 31 - spoken to those who were becoming believers - "If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free." Paul wanted these Galatian believers in Jesus Christ to keep their freedom – and not to lose it. “Loving Father, we thank You and praise You for all that You give us - we thank You for Jesus – a Saviour who loves us and leads us and guides us.” Amen. (This week's "Word from Scotland" - previous articles may be found at Studylight.org and liveasif.org - in the 'Archives' section. Warmest greetings in Christ Jesus.)

"Advancing the Gospel together in the DMV" OneHeartDC is a movement uniting and mobilizing churches, church networks and other organizations to saturate Metro Washington DC (DMV) with the Good News of Jesus Christ.

May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 15:5-6 NIV84) • Vision OneHeartDC is a movement uniting and mobilizing churches, church networks and other organizations to saturate the Metro Washington DC region (DMV) with the Good News of the Gospel. We want each of our 5 million neighbors to experience the love and message of Jesus Christ through one or more of our partners. We celebrate what God is doing here – creating greater visibility and awe of God within our churches and communities. We accelerate the spread of the Good News by sharing information, resources and teams for greater impact. • Missional Objectives OneHeartDC provides a platform or eco-system to release latent Kingdom building capacity for Gospel Saturation of the DMV. Three foundational ‘pillars’ interconnect the Body of Christ so we are more fully functioning: Prayer – We are founded and fueled through prayer that strengthens our communion with God and maintains covering over our mission. We sponsor prayer and worship gatherings as catalysts for building a regional culture of prayer. We seek to cover households across our entire region in prayer by name. Unity – We are a movement of churches, Christian leaders and organizations united in our belief that the Good News of Jesus Christ changes lives. Thus, we assume collective accountability for reaching every man, woman and child with the Gospel. Our bonds around this goal and core Christian theologies allows mobilization and collaboration together and setting aside any denominational, generational, racial and ethnic barriers. Through relationships in Leadership Clusters, we strengthen capacities for transformation of people and communities through discipleship, service and evangelism. Our unity helps us to assess regional coverage of the Gospel and assure multiplication through new church plants and missions in the gaps. Our unity results in bridge-building, reconciliation and thriving communities. Hope – We offer hope by proclaiming the gospel in Word and demonstrating it in deed. This occurs through local and regional mobilization and collaboration together. We provide a network for sharing information on events, equipping for mission, service projects and resources, and sharing stories that inspire hope and point people to God and His glory.

Mission: Gospel Saturation of the DMV (Greater Metro Washington, DC region including the District of Columbia and surrounding jurisdictions in Maryland and Virginia)

Police respond to report of multiple people stabbed at a Chantilly church

Praying for the injured along with our Grace Covenant Church brothers and sisters.

Pastor Brett Fuller issued a statement, “Today, in a routine church educational setting, one of our pastors was assaulted by an attendee. Two church members came to the pastor’s aid and valiantly risked their own lives to defend him. In the process, one of our members was injured. The pastor and one of the members are being treated at Reston Hospital for non life-threatening injuries. The other member involved sustained injuries that did not require medical attention. The assailant was taken into captivity at the scene.

We are in prayer for all the injured. We are grateful for the courage exhibited that prevented worse from happening. Lastly, we want to thank the broader community for their outpouring of concern and support in this time.”

Our Story

Overview

Christ followers in Metro Washington want to see the Gospel saturate our entire region, but this not happening because the Church of the DMV is not functioning as Jesus intended. In the Great Commission and in His prayer for unity in John 17, Jesus communicated two important commands:


  • He called leaders to equip all Christ followers to be missionaries and to ‘go’ and to make disciples.

  • He called leaders and followers alike to build unity within and amongst all expressions of His Church as a witness of Oneness in Christ and the power of the gospel.
  • The Church’s weaknesses in these areas has adversely impacted our consistency in demonstrating and communicating the gospel as Jesus intended. As a result, Kingdom growth of new Christ followers is not keeping up with growth of the population because people:


  • Observe our disunity - we are fractured along racial, theological and other lines.

  • Experience philosophical dissonance with us on the issues of the day.

  • Perceive an insufficient response to mounting social needs.
  • We have not been getting the job done! OneHeartDC exists to help change this – locally and regionally. There are two things that ‘want’ to happen but are not:

    Metaphorically speaking, our partners are the seeds that God waters to produce fruit, but OneHeartDC adds ‘fertilizer’ to increase gospel saturation yield in four ways:

    OneHeartDC clears the path to make Jesus’s expectations for His followers and His Church a reality. We help leaders to do the immediate work of their ministries in making disciples and reaching their local communities AND we help leaders mobilize and collaborate with other leaders to expand the collective reach of the gospel. The result is transformation inside these expressions and multiplication of gospel impact outside these expressions.

    OneHeartDC cultivates a shared vision and commitment to action. The burning platform of the need for gospel saturation is kept central – that every man, woman and child has an opportunity to see, hear and respond to the gospel.

    OneHeartDC provides a strategy for gospel saturation through a network of leadership clusters. Collectively, these clusters provide coverage of all people by focusing on geographies, people groups, affinity groups and needs. Accountability at local levels divides a large region into manageable pieces.

    OneHeartDC provides a platform necessary to support an inter-dependent collaborative network. Knowledge, influence and capacities are networked to optimize and monitor gospel impact.

    What God did

    The story of OneHeartDC is intertwined with the stories of many who came before. For decades, faithful saints prayed and labored for revival and transformation of our great city of Washington DC and the surrounding region. The earliest indications that a new wind was blowing became evident in the summer of 2014. It was then that Lon Solomon, Sr. Pastor of McLean Bible Church, acted on a Spirit directed conviction. God had shown him that he and his church needed to join with other pastors and churches in the region to repent of disunity and to unite in carrying out the Lord’s work together.

    Pastor Solomon called a number of small prayer gatherings with other pastors. The prayers at these gatherings focused around a common theme of 2 Chronicles 7:14. Lon and the pastors were on their knees, humbling themselves, making personal confessions and asking God and each other for forgiveness.

    At the end of summer, the pastors affirmed a need to continue in prayer and fellowship. This led to the Washington Prayer Gathering (WPG) at the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on October 13th. Over 5,000 people across denominations, generations, racial and ethnic diversities attended; thus, providing a tangible expression of unity. Prayer focused on confession of personal sins, the sins of our churches, the sins of our region and for revival. The next year, the WPG grew to over 9,000 participants.

    The WPG was a catalyst for quarterly prayer gatherings of pastors and ministry leaders held around the region. The regional representation and diversity uniquely differentiated these gatherings from others that tended to be more homogeneous and local.

    Throughout the year, God was changing many leaders’ hearts in similar ways. There was increasing brokenness about the spiritual condition of the region: 1) for people who need a personal relationship with Jesus, 2) for the lack of unity within the Church, and 3) for the need to be a greater blessing and to stimulate hope in our communities. There was a deepening conviction that we were failing in getting the job done. Collectively, we were only serving and reaching a fraction of the region and at least a part of the reason was our lack of true John 17 unity. There was growing recognition that no one church, even the larger churches, could accomplish the mission alone.

    In early summer 2015, we witnessed a broader and more diverse spirit of Oneness with 'one heart' centered upon Christ, the Gospel and the needs of our community. A growing number of leaders wanted to seize this Kairos moment. They decided to continue in prayer and fellowship and to embark upon mission together. Hence, the birth of a regional Gospel movement named OneHeartDC to glorify God. The leaders adopted Romans 15:5-6 (NIV84) as the guiding verse:

    OneHeartDC was patterned after many other gospel movements sweeping the US. The leaders affirmed a vision of churches being ‘better together’ by:


  • Celebrating what God is doing here – creating greater visibility and awe of God within our churches and communities.

  • Accelerating the spread of the good news in word and deed to over 5.5 million residents by sharing information, resources and teams for greater impact.
  • What God is doing

    God continues to work in two extraordinary ways:


  • He is supernaturally shaping the hearts of greater numbers of Metro Washington Christian leaders.

  • He is using the OneHeartDC movement to unite and mobilize greater numbers of churches, church networks and other organizations to work together.
  • A powerful movement of the Spirit is fueling an uncommon level of commitment. But passion alone is not enough. We remain fully dependent upon God to open hearts and show us the way.

    The Metro Washington area is a large, complex and diverse socio-economic system made up of many people grouping, needs and interests. Reaching a region like ours requires a comprehensive and unifying strategy. Big problems and big regions like Metro Washington mean that the best of our individual efforts added up will not be enough. We need the empowerment of a shared platform that is supernaturally multiplied.

    Early on, we lacked experience to guide us and needed greater clarity on ‘how’ to impact the entire region for Christ. Some felt that the evangelistic pathway should be through a movement focused on prayer, or reconciliation, or social justice or any number of other worthwhile aims. We were introduced to Kevin Palau, President, Luis Palau Association, Tom White, Frontline Ministries and the Christ Together network who were used by God to show us that the focal point for mobilization needed to be gospel saturation. With this vision at the center, we could mobilize and begin to learn strategies for collaboration, multiplication and transformation applied on a regional scale.

    We are unifying around a great vision to saturate the Metro Washington DC region (DMV) with the Good News of the Gospel:

    Missional Objectives: OneHeartDC provides a platform or eco-system to release latent Kingdom building capacity for Gospel Saturation of the DMV. God showed us three foundational ‘pillars’ to interconnect the Body of Christ so we are more fully functioning:


  • Prayer – We are founded and fueled through prayer that strengthens our communion with God and maintains covering over our mission. We sponsor prayer and worship gatherings as catalysts for building a regional culture of prayer. We seek to cover households across our entire region in prayer by name.

  • Unity – We help the Church display a "witness of oneness" (John 17:21-23), making Christ and the Gospel more visible and tangible. We are a movement of churches, Christian leaders and organizations united in our belief that the Good News of Jesus Christ changes lives. Thus, we assume collective accountability for reaching every man, woman and child with the Gospel. Our bonds around this goal and core Christian theologies allows mobilization and collaboration together and sets aside any denominational, generational, racial and ethnic barriers. Our unity helps us to assess regional coverage of the Gospel, to develop missional leaders and to assure multiplication through new church plants and missions in the gaps. Our unity results in bridge-building, reconciliation, and thriving communities.

  • Hope – We offer hope by proclaiming the gospel in Word and demonstrating it in deed. This occurs through local and regional mobilization and collaboration together. We provide a network for sharing information on events, equipping for mission, service projects and resources, and sharing stories that inspire hope and point people to God and His glory.
  • So how is OneHeartDC structured for our mission of Gospel Saturation of Metro Washington?

    A regional platform: We discovered that the Church was isolated into a myriad of expressions that too rarely interacted. We also discovered that individual expressions were facing challenges to disciple and empower their members on mission. This means that there is a significant quantity of untapped ‘passive’ capacity. OneHeartDC is determined to help turn this passive capacity into active capacity by linking like-minded people together and by creating a supportive infrastructure (connecting people, churches and organizations; sharing information online and through our Good News for the City radio show; networking resources, tools and training; assessing coverage and impact of the gospel in Metro Washington).

    Using a 'constellation' metaphor, the churches, church networks and Christ centered groups are the 'stars' (or nodes). They maintain their unique identities as they serve and reach people in their locales or scopes. OneHeartDC creates channels (lines) for information and resources to flow between the nodes to multiply Kingdom impact. Thus, OneHeartDC provides an organic ecosystem or platform for bringing together the necessary ingredients for mission - knowledge, influence and capacity.

    Local networks: Leadership Clusters are groups of either pastors and ministry leaders or marketplace leaders who meet regularly for prayer, encouragement, sharpening and mission. These platforms encourage collaboration and accountability for geographic locales (communities and entire counties), people groups or needs and provide broad coverage across the region. Through relationships in Leadership Clusters, we strengthen capacities for transformation of people and communities through discipleship, service and evangelism - advancing the missions of each church or organization locally and the gospel movement regionally.

    Leadership: The movement progresses at the speed of relationships amongst leaders and their impulse to work together. Seven (7) senior leaders serve on the Board of Directors. Hundreds of other leaders are committed to tithing their time to the movement. Over 40 clusters of church and ministry leaders and marketplace leaders are doing life and ministry together across the region. Dozens of Catalysts are making connections and strengthening collaboration - providing a stimulus, a spark, an impetus that accelerates the OneHeartDC. Coordinators lead teams focusing on prayer, NextGen, racial reconciliation, inner city, marketplace and more. Movement support is being provided by the Luis Palau Association, Christ Together Network, Frontline Ministries, Movement Day, OneCry, Pulse / Together, CS Lewis Institute, and others.

    Stories: Are the currency of our culture. Through our radio show, at events and online we are highlighting how together OneHeartDC partners are providing every man, woman and child repeated opportunities to see, hear and respond to the gospel.

    WAVA 105.1 FM Salem Radio Network’s premiere 50,000 watt outlet and OneHeartDC are partnering on a weekly radio show called Good News for the City (5:30pm Saturdays, 9:00pm Sundays and podcast www.goodnewsforthecity.com.) The show highlights how God is working through our partners. Listeners are exposed to stories of greater Body partnerships, everyday people mobilizing and living out their faith, and the impact of interpersonal and organized prayer. Our stories:

    ENCOURAGE Christ followers and church leaders by displaying Christ brightly (Matt. 5:16) through stories of transformation - in lives and communities.


  • Expand believers’ view of God and the scope and power of His work in our area.

  • Show the community and community leaders that the Church is a valued asset for the common good.
  • INSPIRE ordinary people to be used by God to multiply His work.

    DEMONSTRATE the power of collaboration and working together – churches, nonprofits, schools, government, etc.

    EQUIP the Church through case studies that highlight the principles of outreach – to meet needs and share the Good News of the Gospel.

    EMPOWER action by providing specific connections to participate or start new activities.

    Catalytic gatherings: We produce events and form partnerships for prayer, worship, training and service to bring the broadest possible cross-section of the Body of Christ together. Examples of these prayer and worship gatherings include the Washington Prayer Gathering, the Capital Region National Day of Prayer, Together, UniteDC; unity and racial reconciliation includes UniteNoVA, United in Action and Repairing the Breach; service includes CityServeDC / Awaken My City; evangelism includes Take the City. These gatherings provide an opportunity for Christ followers to experience the Church as it really is – across our denominations, generations, racial and ethnic diversities – and build Oneness of spirit and purpose.

    Resourcing: We encourage, coach and resource our partners to accelerate the gospel movement by connecting with other church and parachurch organizations. In particular, we partner with the Christ Together network (http://www.christtogether.org/) and use their resources:

    • Gospel Saturation Primer: consisting of 6 guided conversations to establish a shared Kingdom culture and vision – the Principles or ‘Why’.

    • Gospel Saturation Accelerator: consisting of 6 Learning Community experiences to establish shared priorities and strategy for the vision – the Priorities or ‘What’.

    • Gospel Saturation Coaching Guide: a manual for developing strategic plans for individual churches and shared areas of accountability – the Practices or ‘How’.

    Missional Clearinghouse: OneHeartDC is building a web based resource that identifies what God is doing in the region through His Church, captures outcomes and impact and points others to resources that will help them multiply these good works in their contexts.

    This is where we stand:

    Individual churches and ministries committed: >600
