Celebrating Thanksgiving Blessings as a Testimony to the Gospel

Nov 13, 2015

Howie

This Thanksgiving 2015, we want to imitate John the Baptist who "came as a witness, to testify about the Light, so that all might believe" (John 1:7). Feeding those in need and sharing the gospel message will be our testimony to the love and mercy of Jesus Christ. John spoke about Jesus and we want to display Him brighter in the DMV so that everyone will know He is "the way, the truth and the life" (John 14:6) and the only way to God the Father. Churches across the DMV have been serving neighbors in need for a long time, but the community has had limited awareness of the magnitude of these blessings. Meeting real needs in a significant ways in Jesus's name focuses glory on Him and also... Read more

OneHeartDC has the perfect follow-up to the Washington Prayer Gathering for you. Imagine what the Lord might do if every home in the Metro Washington area is being prayed for by name - in effect, creating a 'prayer canopy' over the entire region and our 5 million neighbors! If all the churches represented at the Washington Prayer Gathering participate, this vision can become reality. Even if you were not there, we encourage you to participate to help us saturate our region in prayer.   To accomplish our goal of praying for every home by name, OneHeartDC is partnering with Pray4EveryHome.com to provide secure web tools to our participating churches, which enables each of their members to...

Unity

Oct 13, 2015

Unity is one of the most powerful forces in the world.  In the book of Acts, God's people were together in unity when the Holy Spirit was poured out on them and the church was launched with powerful and impactful results!  When unity comes to a group of people, nothing is impossible. Listen to the words God spoke in Genesis 11:6 concerning unity and its potential.  As the people were building the Tower of Babel, God said, "The people are united, and they all speak the same language.  After this, nothing they set out to do will be impossible for them!" (NLT)  Jesus prayed for us in John 17:20-21 when He said these words, "I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will... Read more

A Gospel Movement is Born

Sep 29, 2015

The story of OneHeartDC is intertwined with the stories of other expressions of God’s movement in Washington DC.  The earliest indications that a new wind was blowing became evident in the summer of 2014. It was then that Lon Solomon, Sr. Pastor of McLean Bible Church, acted on a conviction he had been given that he and McLean Bible Church needed to join with other churches and pastors in the region to repent and unite for the goal of being effectively used to carry out the Lord’s work.  Pastor Solomon led a number of small prayer gatherings with other pastors. The prayers at these gatherings focused around a common theme of 2 Chronicles 7:14. Lon and the pastors were on their knees,... Read more

A Call to Restore Hope

Sep 29, 2015

Clancy Nixon

People today say, “I hope I get that ______(job, appointment).”  For them, hope is a wish, a desire.  In the Bible, hope is stronger stuff.  Biblically, hope is a “strong and confident expectation.” Hope is a virtue.  Christians are commanded to hope.  I’ve observed that local believers often hope for themselves and their congregations, but many have little hope for Churches really working together for the Kingdom of God.  It might seem unrealistic to hope for a transformational revival in our DC metro area at this cultural moment and in our disunited state.  Let’s look.  Look at our local experience.  Admit it: in general, and aside from a few notable and passing exceptions (like the...
