Isaac's Keep (IK) is a church that is intentionally minimal. Activity is a poor judge of faithfulness and busyness is an idol. Rather than attempting to compete with the speed and various noises of life, IK offers a stark contrast. Rejecting the ego driven, entertainment based, and institutional ministry programs, we embrace the adage "less is more" and the body of Christ is best served through gospel focused intentionality (Jesus, Community, Mission). Unencumbered by complexity this simple gospel community driven approach allows agility to accomplish effective service and mission. We embrace being an indigenous people marked primarily by the gospel.
What's with the name?
The name "Isaac" is from God's Word. Isaac was Abraham's son, the son of promise, and the story of Abraham and Isaac is a testament of God's faithfulness to His word. In a society of broken relationships, broken hope, broken promises and with broken hearts of sin, we need to taste and see, we need to be transformed by the perfect promise of God to restore and redeem.
God's greatest display of His faithfulness as a promise keeper is through the life, death, and resurrection of His Son, Jesus. Jesus died to fulfill, to KEEP every promise of God so that might be liberated to have a relationship with God and His creation. Isaac's Keep exists to keep faith in this promise of the Gospel. We seek to worship this promise keeping God, to find strength in the good news of Jesus Christ and to spread that good news wherever God sends us.
