Welcome to Called Out in Kansas. This blog was originally designed to discuss the building of community in the Body of Christ, and while that remains an important focus, the focus of my life has broadened substantially. My heart is to see the Kingdom of God alive and active in my local community, where believers from all different backgrounds, denominations and walks of life gather together to collectively seek our Lord Jesus, and like He did, do the will of our Father. I believe that God has a purpose in this earth. He has ALWAYS had a purpose, and He is ever so patient in unfolding that purpose. I believe that each one of us has an individual call on our lives, which then feeds into the overall corporate purpose for the body of Christ at large. In the end, the purpose of God is to build the City of God in the earth, to establish His Kingdom in a visible and distinct way, where His people truly are salt and life in the earth. I believe that community is not limited by borders of geography, but that believers in different counties, different states and different nations are still part of the greater community of the Kingdom. The purpose of this site is not to bring glory to me, as all glory belongs to the Father, and anything of value that you find here is only here by His grace.
