Our three anchors that make us distinct as a church are that we are committed to being missional, multicultural, and multiplying. For us becoming multicultural is part of us seeking to obey Jesus’ command to make disciples of all nations on earth as it is in Heaven.
Our Latest Series is Becoming a Multicultural Church
Sixty years ago the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. famously said that 11am on Sundays is “the most segregated hour in Christian America.” Sadly, this still persists in much of America today. God has blessed us at The District Church to be a multiethnic church with racial diversity from many parts of our city and world. But what does it take to become multicultural? To be a place where you can worship Christ and experience community in your own heart language? This is not easy, but the New Testament gives us compelling vision for being a church that increasingly reflects Heaven on earth. A vision of a people where every nation, tribe, people, and tongue are gathered before Christ worshiping in diverse cultural expressions. This requires hard work, specifically breaking down walls that have historically divided us, but the possibility of this may be the sign and wonder the unbelieving world is longing to see.
