The earliest followers of Jesus were not called 'Christians'. They were called followers of 'The Way'. They were a group of misfits who were uninterested in building an institution. They had no aims to gain political or religious power. Instead they devoted themselves to worship, the fellowship of eating & drinking, and the sharing of the religion-free good news of Jesus Christ.
For them it was about continuing the work of Jesus; the declaration and demonstration of the Kingdom of God - forgiving, reconciling, healing the sick, helping the poor and standing with the oppressed. This is what it means to be 'The Church'.
Kingdom Asheville is a group of Jesus centered faith communities in that vein. We gather to eat, worship and pray together. Our aim is to grow in love for God, each other and our local communities in Asheville and Brevard, NC. You are very welcome to join us.
