We're witnessing a miracle, the likes of which hasn't been seen in New England in hundreds of years. To the thousands of you who've been a part of planting this church, I've got some amazing news for you. In the last 12 months, our church has over doubled in size, we've baptized over 30 new believers, we've got open doors for the Gospel at Harvard, MIT, Tufts, BU, Wellesley, Emerson, and Northeastern. Our small groups have tripled in number, with a majority of our church growing. Life and Doctrine—our biblical foundations class—has graduated over 70 people this year.
Not only that, but in the last year, God used our church to do mighty acts of justice and love. We've been able to give away almost $90k in charitable gifts, church planting funds, and acts of mercy. God allowed us, through our Renew Project, to remodel our local community center from top to bottom, so that the kids of our city would have a place to play, learn, and grow. Through us, new churches were planted, hurting kids helped, and many changed by the truth, grace, and changing power of the gospel.
In short, God has given us not only a remarkably fast-growing church, but one where discipleship is really happening. This is a grace from God we don't deserve, and without all of you, it wouldn't have been possible. Thank you all so much. Here's a little video we shot to send our big love to you!
