Our Church / Our Vision

Too many people wander through life with no purpose. How do we fulfill our purpose in Christ? Pastor Ryan gave us insight for our church and for our personal lives using Paul as an example in Romans 10.

  1. Start with the WHY – “Brothers, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for them is that they may be saved.” Rom 10:1   What is your heart’s desire? Paul’s desire was to reach the lost with the Gospel. As believers, this should be our desire as well.
  2. Clarify the WHAT – Kingsland’s mission is to reach 10,000 homes with the Gospel of Jesus by 2025. Every person that calls Kingsland home should be a part of this mission.
  3. Envision the HOW – People can’t know Jesus unless they hear. We are all called to tell the Good News of Jesus. Kingsland has a practical strategy.
    1. Maximize this campus
    2. Missions around the world
    3. Multi-site – We are praying for 300 people to follow God’s leading to start our new campus in the fall at Bethke Elementary. It’s an exciting time for our church to reach homes in this area of Katy. It is projected that there will be 15,000 homes built in this area by 2025!

Kingsland sends people all over the world to reach people with the Gospel. Are we willing to be missional and uncomfortable here?

Discussion Questions:

Where is your family serving?

Who are you sharing Jesus with?

Is God calling your family to go to the new campus?

Vision Sunday: The Problem With Giants

Text:  Numbers 13 and 14

Definition: A Giant is any circumstance that causes us to miss out on God’s best because of fear.

A “Giant” can show up in all sorts of circumstances: Unemployment. Divorce. An Oppressive Work Situation. A Health Crisis. Debt. Loneliness. Failure. Fear that you won’t be able to overcome an addiction. Fear that you will miss out on something.

Pastor Ryan presented two truths regarding how our perception of God will impact how we deal with the giants in our life:

1. When God Shrinks, Giants Grow.

Look at what the ten said in 13:31-33: 31 Then the men who had gone up with him said, “We are not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we are.” 32 So they brought to the people of Israel a bad report of the land that they had spied out, saying, “The land, through which we have gone to spy it out, is a land that devours its inhabitants, and all the people that we saw in it are of great height. 33 And there we saw the Nephilim (the sons of Anak, who come from the Nephilim), and we seemed to ourselves like grasshoppers, and so we seemed to them.”

2. When God Grows, Giants Shrink.

Look at what the two said in 14:6-8: And Joshua the son of Nun and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, who were among those who had spied out the land, tore their clothes and said to all the congregation of the people of Israel, “The land, which we passed through to spy it out, is an exceedingly good land. If the Lord delights in us, he will bring us into this land and give it to us, a land that flows with milk and honey.”

What’s the difference?  Joshua and Caleb saw God as He was. The ten saw giants bigger than God. Their God was too small.

At Kingsland, our VISION is driven by our MISSION!

Our mission: Inviting all people to experience true fulfillment in Jesus Christ, one home at a time.

We’ll talk a lot of about True Fulfillment next week, but the heart of what makes Kingsland special is this passion for TWO THINGS:


“At Home & Beyond”

We must focus on the truth of God to help accomplish the mission He has given us!

Discussion questions

1. God tells people in the Bible not to fear 58 times! What do you fear?

2. How have “giants” changed your perspective of God?

3. More importantly, ask yourself the following question: “Will I trust God when things get hard?”
