We exist to advance the kingdom revolution of Jesus worldwide.


We want to be a community that lives what we believe. These five practices serve as guidelines for a way of life that best helps us live in and share the kingdom of God. (They also form a convenient acronym—CABLE.)

Care for the poor and the vulnerable as we extend compassion.

We care for the poor and the vulnerable by praying, serving, giving our time and money. We meet the needs of those who need us.

“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” James 1.27

Acknowledge our journey with one another as we pursue authentic community.

We invite others into our lives. We’re honest, open and vulnerable and we join others in their journeys. We walk through life together.

“…spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another…” Hebrews 10.24–25

Bless our world with servant-love as we share good news about Jesus.

We bless those around us by extending God’s love. God has loved us, so we will love others.

“The Lord had said to Abram, ‘Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you. I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you’” Genesis 12.1–3

Listen for God’s voice and learn from His Word as we follow Jesus with our whole lives.

We learn by reading the Bible—especially the gospels, which teach us about Jesus. And we create space for silence so we can hear God.

“Go near to listen rather than to offer the sacrifice of fools, who do not know that they do wrong… God is in heaven and you are on earth, so let your words be few.” Ecclesiastes 5.1–2

Eat with others who are culturally different as we seek multicultural friendships.

We share a meal or coffee with someone we don’t normally spend time with. In this way we show the hospitality of Christ to those around us.

“Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.” Hebrews 13.2

Jobs at Engedi


God created us—all of us—as a community of people who experience complete wholeness in Him as well as deep, meaningful relationships with each other. But God’s dream was shattered by our attempt to live life without Him, alienating us from God, from ourselves and from everyone else.

Jesus is the solution. He began His ministry by announcing that He had come to bring good news to the poor, to release the oppressed, and to set the prisoner free. These are what it looks like to live in God’s kingdom, which we experience through the restoration of what was lost when we first turned away from God.

We believe that full harmony—with God, within ourselves and in our relationships—will not completely happen until the promised return of Jesus. But we are invited to experience restoration and to extend it to others, right here and right now. We’re invited to advance the kingdom revolution of Jesus worldwide.

Limitless: Our 5-Year Vision

What we believe

We believe in God

Almighty Creator, Sustainer of all, both seen and unseen, the heavens and earth
One God in three Persons, each fully God, in perfect community with one another
Eternal, unchanging, all-knowing and good; perfect in justice, beauty and love
At work saving, restoring and guiding creation and the Church toward God’s kingdom

We believe in God the Father

Immortal, invisible, sovereign, holy, loving and wise
Who spoke all out of nothing and breathed life into man
Who loves each of us with an unconditional and eternal love
Protector of the unprotected and adoptive Father of all who trust in His Son

We believe in Jesus Christ

Son of God, Word become flesh, born of a virgin and without sin
Messiah, Lord, Savior and the fulfillment of Israel’s story and Scripture
He suffered, died, was buried and rose triumphant over sin, death and Satan
Ascended into heaven and seated at the right hand of the Father
He will return to judge and establish God’s kingdom
His life, mission and teachings are the ultimate pattern for life

We believe in the Holy Spirit

Spirit of Truth, sent by the Father and Son, moving throughout the world to convict and renew
Counselor, Teacher, Giver of gifts, Comforter, Helper, the one source of true worship
Drawing us into God’s triune communion and transforming us into Christlikeness
Uniting the Church for the glory of Christ

We believe in the Church

One body and beloved bride of Christ, the hope of society and culture
A countercultural presence of God’s kingdom in this world
Worshiping together, proclaiming the Good News and bringing restoration to the world
A fellowship of mutual love, life-sharing and sacrifice
Called to make disciples of every nation and to teach them to love God and others

We believe in the Holy Scriptures

Divinely inspired revelation of God penned by human hands
Truth without error in its original form
Communicating God’s mission and heart from creation to consummation
Revealing that God is at work in this world in a people; Israel, the Church, the kingdom of God
Our lamp and guide in faith and life, each book pointing to Christ

We believe in the forgiveness of sins

Rebellious in nature and action, each person is subject to divine judgment
In Christ, God became fully human to redeem us fully
Through His sacrifice on the cross, Jesus took the just wrath of God in our place
We died with Him; He died instead of us and for our benefit
His death liberates us from sin and systemic evil and justifies us
God’s grace, through faith alone, brings healing; today in part and fully to come

We believe in life everlasting

The resurrection of Christ broke the bonds of death and ushers in new creation
Resurrection hope while in this world and beyond this life
The triumphant return of Christ and the resurrection of the body
Bringing judgment; eternal separation from God or eternal life on the new earth
The final establishment of the kingdom of God; of peace, justice, love and holiness
Where every tribe, tongue and nation join together to worship God and enjoy Him forever!
