Special August Cypher Church Event Video

Have a look inside. You may be wondering if we’re just a bboy/bgirl community. No. We’re a church bent to embrace the outsider, the people who’d otherwise never fit into contemporary/institutional church. This particular month we had this flavour….     Cypher Church | August Bboy Styles from Yiptography Productions on...

Your Wholeness Found in Community

There are so many stories about Jesus healing people. Think about one now. Maybe the woman who touched the cloak of Jesus and was healed from her bleeding? The men healed from leprosy, blindness, lameness? Jesus offered (and was THE) a foretaste of what God had in mind for creation–to restore all things. Or to put another way, to right all of the wrongs. That’s why he performed so many miracles. But crazy miraculous healings wasn’t only about restoring someone to physical health. Rather, Jesus knew there was a deeper level. 2000 years ago (and similar today unfortunately), if...

Repair and restore the streets of our city

If you’ve seen the pictures or connected to an event you’ll notice Cypher Church is different. It’s unlike any church service you’ve probably seen. We’re not chasing a different kind of religion, rather, we’re after a movement to transform the people in our city. Religion says, “believe in the right things and looks like us.” Movement asks how do your gifts and abilities elevate the dream God has to turn all of the wrongs right from your network, neighborhood, city, and beyond. Cypher Church chases the movement Jesus started. It’s one for the mavericks, the dreamers, the innovators, the...

Consumerism contributes to a lifestyle that overvalues accumulating stuff and desires. It presumes worth is connected to the accumulation of things for others to see. It suggests whatever you crave, you deserve, and should be able to purchase for your own enjoyment.

Do you know someone like this? Consumerism...

God Can’t Use You

There’s a religious saying that’s out of place. When someone exhibits some skill or gift, or is feeling a little down, someone else will come alongside and say something along the lines, “…God can use you for his purposes!” The intent is benign but the statement is false. Think about this way, if two friends were talking about a new relationship and one said, “I can’t wait to be used for his purposes!” There would be stunned silence. There should be. God can’t use you. We abuse the things we use. Rather, what God has for you is better. You’re invited to respond to live out the fullness of your humanity by participating in God’s unfolding dream in our world. The things that you crave: love, justice, beauty, hope, are things found in God’s purpose for you. But it’s not a purpose to be used. It’s invitation. You decide if that life is something you want to be a part...
