is a growing community of local churches in the greater Greenville area working together to advance and inspire the Christian unity for which Jesus prayed in John 17.
In John 17 Jesus prayed that the Church would be “one” and that she would be brought to “complete unity.” This prayer of Jesus is our "ONE Prayer." An answer to this ONE Prayer will strengthen us all with our diverse gifts and callings.
Scripture teaches that the Church will become a pure, spotless bride “without stain, or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless.” It teaches that we will "become mature, attaining to the whole measure of fullness of Christ."
These scriptures and others provide encouragement for us to take even small steps towards more unity. Love, humility and prayer for one another is the primary path to take while, through ONE Prayer, we lean also into these promises through prayer events and corporate gatherings.
A house divided against itself cannot stand. If the Church in Greenville is going to stand firm when the day of evil comes, then we must mature in unity.
We invite you to make this ONE Prayer your own and join us in this work.
“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one: I in them and you in me. May they may be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world.”
