VISION

 

WHO WE ARE

The In and Out Lifestyle is centered upon loving God and loving people by daily “coming in” (worship, prayer, intercession) and daily “going out” (ministry, work place, service, missions). This rhythm of life is centered upon the first commandment (loving God) and second commandment (loving people). When we properly “come in” it will naturally result in properly “going out.” This lifestyle has created the Upper Room culture of love and power that is transforming communities (Matt. 22:36-39, Ezek. 46:9-10, Eph. 3:14-19).

Scriptural basis for the In and Out Lifestyle marked the life of Moses, Joshua, Caleb, David, Solomon and more. It was the hallmark quality for effective leadership in the nation of Israel. In fact, the In and Out Lifestyle is mentioned in Moses’s retirement, Joshua’s appointment, Caleb’s final victory, and Solomon’s request for wisdom. Ezekiel mentions the In and Out Lifestyle when he describes the order of service in coming in before the Prince, being changed and going out with power. Needless to say, it is an important activity for us to understand (Deut. 31:2, Num. 27:15-23, Josh. 14:11, 1 Sam. 18:16, 1 Kings 3:7, Ps. 121:8, Her. 17:19-27, Ezek. 46:9-10).

 

VISION

Jesus is our passion, desire, and pursuit. We love to love Him as He has loved us. We value His presence and desire to establish a community in which the fullness of His Presence consistently manifests in the lives, homes, schools, businesses, and cities of those who serve in this house. Therefore, our community centers itself first and foremost around this activity: receiving love from God and giving love back to God. Our Prayer Room is a place to gather morning, noon, and night to minister to God’s heart, receive His love, hear His voice, and then decree, prophesy, and pray those realities into the earth.
