Kingdom & Cross

LifeStream Europe is committed to both the theology and practice of the kingdom of God, and the gospel of grace in Christ. Read more…

God’s plan of salvation moves from creation to new creation, and his reign brings wholeness of life for all creation. As God’s Kingdom-people, the worldwide church is commissioned and empowered by the Spirit to proclaim and demonstrate the coming of this kingdom.

We want to see the church actively involved in this mission, bringing ‘the presence of God’s future’ to our (host) nations, our cities, our neighbourhoods, and our hearts. We believe that the wholeness of God’s kingdom translates to ministries of reconciliation, social and ecological justice, healing (physical, emotional, and social) and deliverance, and to cultural and political engagement.

However, there is no Kingdom without the cross, no Kingdom-people without the forgiveness of sin by grace. Proclaiming the Kingdom is all about leading people to the king, Jesus Christ– a King who died on the cross for our sin, and was raised to life again – to receive forgiveness of sin, and a new life in Christ. It is through grace alone that we are adopted as sons and daughters of the Father – in the Son and through the Spirit of sonship.
