The Grace Project

IGC's, The Inclusive Grace-filled Community, new website.

Pleased to announce the launch of our sister ministry IGC's, The Inclusive Grace-filled Community, new website.  

When we planted our first church in September 2000, the Lord gave us a simple mandate to grow a church by grace alone, Abundant Life Church and The Grace Project were born out of that vision. Fourteen years on and thinking that our church planting days were behind us, the Lord spoke to us again. He wanted us to lead a community of believers in North West London, International Gospel Church (IGC), and guide them along the path of grace. This time, I must confess I was initially less than enthusiastic. I can claim no higher ground than the obdurate son who having said he would go and work in his father’s vineyard eventually relented and did. (Matt. 21:29).
 
As I prayed about what our direction should be, I was struck by the sense of challenge from the Lord about helping this community to really grow, or grow up, in grace. What if we could make them a different kind of IGC – an Inclusive Grace Community?
 
I developed a concept called CLIMATE Changers – Christ Living In Me Alters The Environment – as a means of signposting what life will look like as we made room for the indwelling life of Jesus to live His life through us. It proved helpful to the community to understand that if something has life you can expect it to grow. Love grows – it expands and extends its divine influence into our homes, workplaces, communities etc.
 
If it’s true that “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me” (Gal. 2:20), then it follows that we might reasonably expect “the life I [we] now live,” – which is the life of Christ – will positively impact the way we live. Not because we will attempt to imitate this new life, but rather that we participate in it.
 
In the Autumn of 2014, we began to develop this concept further by beginning to define our purpose around a model that I call Love G.R.O.W.S. The acronym is our compass – it governs our values and guides our decision-making.

Discover who you really are?

The strap-line of The Grace Project - "Discover who you Really are" - suggests, we take the view that many, if not, most believers not only have yet to discover this truth but worse, in the absence of this awareness, they (we) are left to live out of our "own" resources with the inevitable consequences of burnout and disillusionment.

Are you "living by the rules, " or are you letting God's grace rule you?
We cannot ignore the fact that there are a growing number of peo‑ ple who used to profess a faith and call themselves Christians but no longer do so.
