Gospel to the World
We believe that the gospel of Jesus Christ is the only hope for all of humanity and creation. As the church, we have been commissioned to proclaim and demonstrate this gospel in word and deed by the power of the Holy Spirit; to be on mission every day in our rhythms of life, seeking renewal in our relationships, workplaces, and neighborhoods.
Build. Restore. Renew
“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound to proclaim the year of the Lord‘s favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn; to grant to those who mourn in Zion—to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes,the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit; that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified. They shall build up the ancient ruins; they shall raise up the former devastations; they shall repair the ruined cities, the devastations of many generations.” Isaiah 61:1-4
God’s heart in Isaiah 61 is for the rebuilding, restoration, and renewal of our broken cities. We see in 2 Corinthians 5:18 that Christ has reconciled us to himself and He has given to us the ministry of reconciliation to bring this plan of reconciliation to completion. This is the mission of God. God has invited us to partake in this mission and we are called to faithfully proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ to the world both locally and globally. It is our hope that God would use Tapestry LA Church to bring healing to the brokenhearted and freedom to those enslaved in sin.
We are sent by Christ as missionaries to the world just as He was a missionary to us. In Christ, we have new life because He has reconciled us to God through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Through His work on the cross, our sins are not counted against us and the old is gone. In the same way, Jesus sends us to live this new vibrant life of restoration to God, others, and creation by being filled with the Holy Spirit, being set free from our self-centeredness, and proclaiming this good news to others intentionally. By imitating Christ, people are able to see and experience what God is truly like. We hope to be faithful ambassadors of Christ by being missional in our communities through Jesus’ ways of truth, grace, and care. (John 1:14; John 20:21-22; Colossians 1:19-20; 2 Corinthians 5:16-21)
Local and Global Missions
We believe that we are a sent community, called to bring renewal to the city around us. It is our hope that we would become good neighbors, investing and making disciples of those around us. However, the scope of our mission is not limited to our neighborhood. God sends us out to bring all peoples and nations under the lordship of Christ. We are committed to proclaim the gospel to the unreached people groups of the world.
