Welcome to the revolution, a revolution led by Jesus, who provided us with the vision of a kingdom worth dying for, making him the most radical revolutionary of all time. In the Revolutionary Kingdom, we will learn that to join Christ, we must exchange comfortable cultural worldviews and values for the radical requirements of living out the Kingdom in the here and now.
