At Thrive Church AZ we believe in keeping things simple. We are built around the command Jesus gave to His followers in Matthew 28 and Matthew 22.
In Matthew 28, Jesus states "Go out and train everyone you meet, far and near, in this way of life, marking them by baptism in the threefold name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Then instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you."
In Matthew 22, Matthew tells us that Jesus states everything God commands is about Loving God and Loving others; “Love the Lord your God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence.’ This is the most important, the first on any list. But there is a second to set alongside it: ‘Love others as well as you love yourself.’ These two commands are pegs; everything in God’s Law and the Prophets hangs from them.”
At Thrive you will hear about our three core values; Encounter - Engage - Empower. These values are born of the command of Jesus to his followers and we want to keep things simple, obey this command and trust Him in His promise to be with us in this endeavor. We want to do everything we do as an expression of our love for God and others.
