Who are we?
The Resound Network – “Lifting the voice of the church of tomorrow”
Why do we exist?
To promote biblical justice through the power of the gospel in the lives of Christians.
What do we hope to see?
Globally-minded and diverse churches living redemptively today.
What’s our purpose?
The Resound Network is an organization devoted to promoting biblical justice through the power of the gospel. We believe that the church of tomorrow is diverse, globally-minded, and engaged in this world. We seek to lift the voice of the church of tomorrow.
What do we stand for?
- Tomorrow’s church is doctrinally robust. The church of Christ is built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets (Ephesians 2:20) who testified to the infallible and inerrant Word of God (1 Timothy 3:16). The church is strongest when it knows the Word of truth and is convinced of the power of the Holy Spirit.
- Tomorrow’s church is diverse, from the leadership to the laypeople. We must foster conversations on issues of diversity and racial/ethnic justice and promote voices outside of the mainstream. We must build up the leaders of tomorrow’s church.
- Tomorrow’s church is globally-minded. Christ always intended for his church to be united from the ends of the earth. We must promote the voices of brothers and sisters around the world and live our lives as Christians in a way that sees ourselves as a part of a larger multitude of Christ’s kingdom.
- Tomorrow’s church is a promoter of biblical justice. Pastors, elders, and deacons must begin to foster a suitable atmosphere where discipleship, spiritual formation, and sanctification are tied together with the pursuit of biblical justice inside and outside the church. Laypeople must train themselves to see how the imperatives of the Christian life apply into everyday life pursuits of biblical justice.
- Tomorrow’s church is engaged in this world. Churches and Christians can no longer avoid political and social issues for the sake of spiritual issues. Instead, they must thoughtfully apply the truths of the gospel to the difficult and complex issues of our day.
- Tomorrow’s church is generous. Unfettered capitalism and materialism has too long been touted as a “Christian virtue,” and the ideology of exploitation and objectification have infiltrated the church. We must foster a heart and commitment towards generosity as a form of worship, service of our brothers and sisters in Christ, and deeds in line with the gospel to our neighbor.
What do we value?
- Fidelity: Faithfulness to the Word of God and our calling as Christians.
- Honesty: Honest about the past (both good and bad), honest about ourselves and our condition.
- Humility: Prayerfulness; a posture of humility towards those who disagree; an attitude of “tell me more.”
- Diversity: treasuring the differences that God has created.
- Unity: upholding one-ness in Christ.
- Integrity: financially, personally, organizationally. Keeping accountable before God and man as good stewards.
- Worship: we do our work as an overflow of worship and to foster worship.
- Confidence: We stand in a posture of confidence, responding to the opposition without the need to justify ourselves in their eyes.
