What is Unite My City?
Behind the Name
Each one of these passages are written to God’s people. It’s a call for unity (may they experience perfect unity), all of God’s people (my people who are called by my name) so that we may shine out (like a city on a hilltop).
Unite My City hosts a variety of opportunities for lead pastors to meet and build relationships. As pastoral relationships grow, trust is established and the table set for greater levels of collaboration between congregations. If you’re a pastor and want to connect please contact us here.
Coordinated prayer gatherings for pastors, leaders and congregations is critical to seeing unity come to pass and sustained in a city. Praying in agreement over specific issues in corporate times of prayer is a major part of seeing transformation come to our cities.
Music can be a unifying agent crossing a variety of barriers in the Church. Times of corporate worship are strategic opportunities for the Body of Christ in a city to intentionally come together to worship our God in a spirit of unity beyond their own church family.
Connecting through relationships, prayer, and worship help create a culture of unity within the Church. Congregations uniting through service is the powerful component of visibly showing our unity to our city while meeting real needs in our communities. By uniting together to serve, we believe our love for one another becomes a reflection of God’s love to the world around us. The synergy that takes place through relationships, prayer, worship, and service creates a culture of love that will draw people to Jesus (John 17:23). Service in unity is where unity becomes missional.
Inspiring a Movement
We want to do our part to inspire this movement of God’s church working in unity across the Tulsa area and beyond. We hope these blogs, sound bites, testimonies and stories help you see what God is doing, catch the vision and run with it in your own city.
Focused on God’s command to love Him and each other, we encourage the Body of Christ to put our differences aside and put each other first. As we focus on pointing people to Jesus, fulfilling our common mission, we strive to keep secondary issues second and each other first. By continuing to do this we can walk in the unity we have in Christ. Recognizing doctrine is a dividing line and it’s importance the Lausanne Covenant is a general guiding principle we follow.
Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony (Colossians 3:14).
