As we open our eyes on the 1st of January 2015 the words of Jesus reverberates in our ears:
The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach the good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour…… TODAY this scripture is fulfilled. (Luke 4:18-19, 21)
Micah’s agenda could not be clearer, what does God require of us?Is it not to act justly, to love mercy and compassion, to walk in humility with God?Today!
Invitation: come let us walk together
One of the most inspiring aspects of being a part of Micah is that we build deep and meaningful relationships with one another. United by our common purpose of seeing the Kingdom of God come and transform lives, communities and nations. We weep together as we mourn the lost lives from the shooting of children in Peshawar, the Air Asia plane crash, the destruction Ebola is wreaking. We celebrate the gains from the Millennium Development Goals, the reconciliation achievements in Rwanda, the solidarity gaining momentum to expose and stamp out corruption.Together we make a difference.
Invitation: come let us build together
We believe that in every nation God is preparing a people to demonstrate the Kingdom of God, to be light and salt in their nation, to be a blessing by seeking the welfare of their communities.
We believe God has called us in Micah to be a part of His movement of transformation.
We are convinced that integral mission is a vital expression of God’s love for us, for His world and for His creation.
We are convinced that together we can proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour.
Will you join us? Will you partner with us? Will you walk together with us?
God has blessed each of us so that we can be a blessing.
