THE RADIUS WAY

WHO WE ARE | HOW WE LIVE

Passage after biblical passage gives us important instruction about our home life. At RADIUS Church we are passionate about taking ownership of our radius – where we live, work and play. We are also passionate our walk with God. Both of these passions collide in the home. The first place we will walk with God will be in our homes. The first neighbors we will love are the families in our home. The first place to apply God’s word to our lives is at home.

Our radius starts in our homes, but it extends daily into our world – where we live, work, and play. This is where we come in contact with teachers, co-workers, baseball friends, the cashier at the grocery store.  We are to take responsibility here –  where we live life, engaging the culture around us, practicing hospitality and doing good deeds. Why? So that you can earn the opportunity to tell them about the good news of Jesus as you go about your everyday business. 

Each partner at RADIUS Church is a part of the Body.  It has many parts. The Body of Christ is a poignant metaphor for how God views us with Christ as the head. The body is diverse in race and RADIUS strives for that. The body is diverse in gifts yet all serve for the betterment of the whole. Meeting together is at the heart of becoming the body. This gathering is actually what the word “church” in our New Testament means. We meet together on Sundays and in small groups. We do this to be stirred up to love and good works.

And you are living stones that God is building into his spiritual temple. What’s more, you are his holy priests.Through the mediation of Jesus Christ, you offer spiritual sacrifices that please God. 1 Peter 2:5

The human body has many parts, but the many parts make up one whole body. So it is with the body of Christ. Some of us are Jews, some are Gentiles, some are slaves, and some are free. But we have all been baptized into one body by one Spirit, and we all share the same Spirit.Yes, the body has many different parts, not just one part.  1 Corinthians 12:12-14

And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today. Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up. Tie them to your hands and wear them on your forehead as reminders. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.  Deuteronomy 6:6-9
