The dictionary defines the word epic as: Surpassing the usual or ordinary, particularly in scope or size; Heroic and impressive in quality. The life of Jesus is certainly a heroic tale, isn’t it? A kingdom sends one man to invade an entire planet. He doesn’t show up in a futuristic vehicle, such as a space ship, with weapons blazing; on the contrary, he comes in with the utmost stealth… as a baby. He first infiltrates the world, then begins to influence the world before He ultimately changes the world. His weapon of choice: mercy. He meets hate with love; opposes violence with peace; counters criticism and judgment with tolerance and grace. He even offers forgiveness when none is requested. Napoleon Bonaparte famously said: “Alexander, Caesar, Charlemagne, and myself founded empires; but upon what foundation did we rest the creations of our genius? Upon force. Jesus Christ founded an empire upon love; and at this hour millions of men would die for Him.” It is little wonder, then, that the early church of which we read in the book of Acts is such an unstoppable force. These men and women were merely reflecting the epic character of their leader. Shouldn’t we?
True Life Church is a community of believers who aren’t satisfied with the mundane tales that most of our Christian lives have told. We use the letters in epic as an acronym for equipped, passionate, inspired, and creative. We believe these qualities are the building blocks of a heroic faith. Our belief is that by becoming better equipped, more passionate in our commitment, divinely inspired, and releasing the creative gifts that lie dormant in many of us, we, too can author epic tales for the Kingdom of Jesus Christ.
