WHAT IS LIVE 2017?
Vintage Church’s mission is to make disciples who know the gospel, live the gospel, and advance the gospel. Live 2017 is the second year in a three year series based on that mission. Last year through Know 2016 we focused on knowing the gospel more fully as a church. We look back on 2016 as a year of understanding the absolute totality of Jesus’ work on our behalf, and we look ahead to 2017 as a year of learning to walk according to that reality.
Throughout the year we will be studying 1 and 2 Corinthians. Paul wrote these letters to a church struggling to know how to live the Christian life. Paul urged believers in Corinth to stop following Jesus as only a part of their life and to make following Jesus their overarching life narrative. Our prayer is that this series would do that for us as a church and that throughout 2017 we would learn to “walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which [we] have been called.” (Ephesians 4:1). We want to help people not only know the freedom, love, and peace of the gospel but experience it each day.

LIVE THE GOSPEL IN 2017
In addition to studying 1 and 2 Corinthians on Sundays and in community groups, we’re offering specific training on learning how to live out the gospel in the specific phase of life or arena you operate in.

MEMORIZING SCRIPTURE TOGETHER
We’ll also be memorizing 1 Corinthians 13 together as a church. This epic passage has become too familiar to us through wedding readings and inspirational posters, and our hope is to understand the depth and revolutionary nature of the love of God through Jesus Christ as we learn to walk in love for one another and the world around us.
