Who is Kenwood

Kenwood is a local gathering of the global body of the Lord Jesus Christ. Kenwood includes twenty native languages, four generations of people, and dozens of neighborhoods around the city. The unity of the church is found in the shared confession that Jesus Christ is Lord. We believe that Jesus came "to seek and to save the lost" (Luke 19:10); that he came not "to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many" (Matthew 20:28); and that "everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved" (Romans 10:13). We are a redeemed people, united by faith in Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit to walk in newness of life (2 Corinthians 5:17).

We desire to offer ourselves to God in heartfelt worship. We seek to live by his Word through expository preaching and small group discussion. We are compelled to join his mission in the world as each person uses the gifts that Christ has given. We pray that through us the gospel might reach into our neighborhoods and nations, transforming our own lives, families, and broader communities. We look with hope toward the great day when "the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD as the waters cover the sea" (Habakkuk 2:14).

Kenwood has a rich history, a growing present, and a vibrant future. It is a caring family, an active body, a church where "the manifold wisdom of God is being made known" (Ephesians 3:10). It is a place to grow in faith and faithfulness, a place to seek and to serve, a place to become and to belong. It is a hospital for sinners and a sanctuary for saints. It is a place that warmly welcomes you.

There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
