The Jesus Movement

What is the Jesus Movement?

We're following Jesus into a loving, liberating, and life-giving relationship with God, with each other, and with earth.

How do we participate?

First, we follow Jesus. We are simply the Episcopal branch of the Jesus Movement, seeking every day to love God with our whole heart, mind and soul, and to love our neighbors as ourselves (Matthew 22:36-40). Just like Jesus.

What's the work of the movement?

The Jesus Movement takes you places. For the Episcopal Church, it calls us to focus on three specific priorities. 

EVANGELISM

Listen for Jesus' movement in our lives and in the world. Give thanks. Proclaim and celebrate it! Invite the Spirit to do the rest.

Inspire Episcopalians to embrace evangelism.

 

Gather Episcopal evangelists.

 

Equip all to be evangelists.

 

Send all as evangelists.
