Grace Communities

Grace Communities are enhanced by the Grace Hub, an innovative platform by KINGDOM Empowered designed to foster Christ-centric communities dedicated to fulfilling the Great Commission.

“And He said “Come!” And Peter got out of the boat, and walked on the water and came toward Jesus.” Matthew 14:25

This final article explains how the Grace Hub ties into KINGDOM Empowered's mission and vision, emphasizing the creation and management of decentralized, self-sustaining Christ-centric communities built upon the foundation of Jesus Christ.

"His mother *said to the servants, “WHATEVER HE SAYS TO YOU, DO IT.” Now there were six stone waterpots set there for the Jewish custom of purification, containing twenty or thirty gallons each. Jesus *said to them, “Fill the waterpots with water.” So they filled them up to the brim. And He *said to them, “Draw some out now and take it to the headwaiter.” So they took it to him. When the headwaiter tasted the water which had become wine, and did not know where it came from (but the servants who had drawn the water knew), the headwaiter *called the bridegroom, and *said to him, “Every man serves the good wine first, and when the people have drunk freely, then he serves the poorer wine; but you have kept the good wine until now.” This beginning of His signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, AND MANIFESTED HIS GLORY, and His disciples believed in Him." John 2:5-11

The Vision of the Grace Hub Powered Community

The Grace Hub is a community-building platform to create small, Christ-centric communities that mirror the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth.

"For if by the transgression of the one, death reigned through the one, much more those who receive the ABUNDANT OF GRACE and of THE GIFT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS WILL REIGN IN LIFE THROUGH THE ONE, JESUS CHRIST " Romans 5:17

These communities are designed to be self-sustaining, decentralized, and focused on spreading the Gospel and making disciples of all nations.

"The Law came in so that the transgression would increase; but where sin increased, GRACE ABOUNDED ALL THE MORE, so that, as sin reigned in death, even SO GRACE WOULD REIGN THROUGH RIGHTEOUSNESS to eternal life THROUGH JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD." Romans 5:20-21

Grace Communities powered by the Grace Hub are physical spaces and spiritual ecosystems where believers can grow in their faith, find Grace, and collaborate with other believers on mission-driven initiatives.

"When He went ashore, He saw a large crowd, and felt compassion for them and healed their sick. When it was evening, the disciples came to Him and said, “This place is desolate and the hour is already late; so send the crowds away, that they may go into the villages and buy food for themselves.” But Jesus said to them, “They do not need to go away; you give them something to eat!” They *said to Him, “We have here only five loaves and two fish.” And He said, “Bring them here to Me.” Ordering the people to sit down on the grass, He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up toward heaven, HE BLESSED THE FOOD, and breaking the loaves He gave them to the disciples, AND THE DISCIPLES GAVE THEM TO THE CROWDS, and they all ate and were satisfied. They picked up what was left over of the broken pieces, twelve full baskets. There were about five thousand men who ate, besides women and children." Matthew 14:14-21

The vision is establishing a network of interconnected Grace Communities to advance the Kingdom of God globally.

"Jesus *said, “Remove the stone.” Martha, the sister of the deceased, *said to Him, “Lord, by this time there will be a stench, for he has been dead four days.” Jesus *said to her, “Did I not say to you THAT IF YOU BELIEVE, YOU WILL SEE THE GLORY OF GOD?” So they removed the stone. Then Jesus raised His eyes, and said, “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me. I knew that You always hear Me; but because of the people standing around I said it, so that they may believe that You sent Me.” When He had said these things, He cried out with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth.” The man who had died came forth, bound hand and foot with wrappings, and his face was wrapped around with a cloth. Jesus *said to them, “Unbind him, and let him go.” Therefore many of the Jews who came to Mary, AND SAW WHAT HE HAD DONE, BELIEVED IN HIM." John 11:39-45

The foundational principle of the Grace Community is radical generosity, reflecting Jesus' self-giving love. By embodying this principle, Grace Communities aim to transform the entire communities into living examples of Christ’s LIFE, where love, mercy, and grace are the norm, being practiced daily.


“Imagine Pastor James and his wife, Mary, realize their previous theological education lacked depth in discipleship and the Great Commission. Through the Grace Hub, they find the resources and community support to deepen their understanding of the Bible and disciple-making. They attend online courses, connect with experienced pastors, and transform their church into a vibrant, disciple-making community. Imagine their renewed focus on truth and the Great Commission revitalizing their ministry and congregation. Pastor James and Mary become pillars of faith, guiding their flock with Kingdom wisdom and love.”

Building Christcentric Communities

Using the Grace Hub, KINGDOM Empowered promotes the creation and management of these Grace communities based on foundational truth found only in Jesus' teachings, specifically in the Holy Bible. Grace Communities serve everyday Christians in seeking the Kingdom of God above all else, providing tools and resources to help Christians live out their faith in the Kingdom of God.

"To those who have RECEIVED A FAITH of the same kind as ours, by THE RIGHTEOUSNESS of our God and Savior, JESUS CHRIST: Grace and peace be multiplied to you in THE KNOWLEDGE of GOD and of Jesus our Lord; seeing that HIS DIVINE POWER has granted to us EVERYTHING pertaining to LIFE and GODLINESS, through the TRUE KNOWLEDGE of HIM who called us by His own glory and excellence. For by these He has GRANTED TO US His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them YOU MAY BECOME PARTAKERS of the DIVINE NATURE, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust.” 2 Peter 1:1-4

The communities facilitated by the Grace Hub are designed to be decentralized and self-sustaining, mirroring the early Church's communal lifestyle. Members of these communities share resources, support one another, and work together to spread the Gospel and make disciples. This model not only fosters spiritual growth but also builds resilience and sustainability within the community.

"Finally, brethren, rejoice, be made complete, be comforted, be like-minded, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you. Greet one another with a holy kiss. All the saints greet you. The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all." 2 Corinthians 13:11-14

The Mandate of KINGDOM Empowered

KINGDOM Empowered's mandate to disciple the nations is realized through the Grace Communities by establishing Christ-centric Grace Hubs worldwide. These communities are envisioned as reflections of the early Church, grounded in Jesus' radical love and generosity, and are vital in preparing for the end times and the second coming of Jesus Christ.

"Instruct those who are rich in this present world not to be conceited or to fix their hope on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly supplies us with all things to enjoy.” 1 Timothy 6:17

By leveraging the Grace Hub for Grace Communities, KINGDOM Empowered aims to fulfill the Great Commission by creating spaces where believers can gather, grow, and be equipped to spread the Gospel. The hub provides the community various resources, including teaching materials, discipleship programs, and community-building tools, all designed to help believers live out their faith in tangible ways.

“For it is for this we labor and strive, because we have fixed our hope on the living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of believers.” 1 Timothy 4:10

Christcentric KE Communities

These communities, facilitated by the Grace Hub, are designed to embody the essence of the Kingdom of Heaven. They focus on living out Jesus' mandate to love one another and to spread the Gospel through practical actions and radical generosity. The Grace Hub equips believers to build and sustain these communities, ensuring they remain focused on fulfilling the Great Commission.

Christcentric KE Communities prioritize discipleship, community engagement, and evangelism. They are places where believers can grow in understanding God's Word, develop strong relationships with fellow believers, and actively engage in mission work. The goal is to create vibrant, resilient communities that advance God's Kingdom on Earth.

"your Father knows what you need before you ask him. “This, then, is how you should pray:“ ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your KINGDOM come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.’ ” Matthew 6:8-13


“Imagine Tom and Susan, a retired sheriff’s deputy, and his wife, Susan, open their home to a young mother and her children. Through the Grace Hub, they access resources on trauma recovery, counseling, and community support. Their church, connected through the Grace Hub, provides additional support, turning their home into a place of healing and restoration. Imagine Tom and Susan's commitment to radical generosity and self-giving love exemplifying the Grace Hub's mission. Their story is one of compassion and faith, showing how the Grace Hub can transform lives and communities.”

The Grace Hub as a Training Ground

The Grace Hub also serves as a training ground for believers, equipping them with the skills and knowledge to live out their faith effectively. This includes training in discipleship, evangelism, community building, and leadership. By providing these resources, the Grace Hub helps believers to grow in their faith and become effective ambassadors for Christ.

"But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit." 2 Corinthians 3:18

Training programs offered through the Grace Hub are designed to be practical and hands-on, allowing believers to apply what they learn in real-world settings. These programs cover various topics, from biblical studies and theology to practical skills like conflict resolution and community development. The aim is to equip believers with the tools they need to positively impact their communities and beyond.

"And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth... For of His fullness we have all received, and grace upon grace. For the Law was given through Moses; grace and truth were realized through Jesus Christ." John 1:14, 16-17

The Role of Radical Generosity

Radical generosity is a core principle of the Grace Hub, reflecting the self-giving love of Jesus. This principle is not just about financial giving but encompasses all aspects of life, including time, talents, and resources. By practicing radical generosity, believers can create communities that are marked by love, compassion, and selflessness.

"Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth." 2 Timothy 2:15

The Grace Hub encourages members to live out this principle daily, whether through acts of service, hospitality, or financial support. By doing so, they create a culture of generosity that reflects Jesus's heart and attracts others to the Gospel.

"As He was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things happen, and what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” And Jesus answered and said to them, “See to it that no one misleads you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will mislead many." Matthew 24:3-5

Building a Global Network of Grace Hubs

The vision for the Grace Hub extends beyond individual communities to creating a global network of interconnected hubs. This network aims to connect believers and communities worldwide, providing a platform for collaboration, resource sharing, and mutual support.

"Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved. This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come." Matthew 24:12-14

By building this global network, KINGDOM Empowered seeks to create a movement of Christ-centric communities that can work together to advance the Kingdom of God. This network allows believers to learn from one another, share resources, and collaborate on mission-driven initiatives.

“Therefore when you see the abomination of desolation which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), then those who are in Judea must flee to the mountains. Whoever is on the housetop must not go down to get the things out that are in his house. Whoever is in the field must not turn back to get his cloak. But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days!" Matthew 24:15-18


“Imagine Alex, a junior associate at a law firm, finds fulfillment in serving the poor and disadvantaged. Through the Grace Hub, he accesses a network of Christian attorneys and resources on pro bono work and community service. Inspired by the platform's emphasis on radical generosity, Alex starts a legal clinic for low-income families, supported by donations and volunteer work from the Grace Hub community. Imagine his clinic becoming a lifeline for many, providing legal services and spreading the love of Christ. Alex's dedication and faith shine through, profoundly impacting his community.”

The Importance of Community in the End Times

As we approach the end times, the role of Christcentric communities becomes increasingly important. These communities provide a refuge for believers, offering support, encouragement, and spiritual nourishment. They also serve as a witness to the world, demonstrating the love and grace of Jesus in tangible ways.

"For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will. Unless those days had been cut short, no life would have been saved; but for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short." Matthew 24:21-22

The Grace Hub fosters strong, resilient communities to prepare believers for the end times. These communities provide a haven where believers can grow in their faith, find support, and engage in mission work. They also serve as a beacon of hope and truth in darkness and deception.

"Then if anyone says to you, ‘Behold, here is the Christ,’ or ‘There He is,’ do not believe him. For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect. Behold, I have told you in advance. So if they say to you, ‘Behold, He is in the wilderness,’ do not go out, or, ‘Behold, He is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe them. For just as the lightning comes from the east and flashes even to the west, so will the coming of the Son of Man be." Matthew 24:24-27

Living in Grace Communities

Grace Communities are designed to look and act like the early Church, with believers living in close-knit, supportive environments. These communities provide spiritual and physical support, helping members grow in their faith and prepare for the end times. They focus on Jesus' teachings, radical generosity, and self-giving love.

"And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky with power and great glory. And He will send forth His angels with a great trumpet and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other." Matthew 24:30-31

The Grace Communities are structured to foster deep, meaningful relationships among members, creating a strong sense of belonging and mutual support. Members share resources, pray together, and engage in mission work, all while living out the principles of the Kingdom of God.

"But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron, " 1 Timothy 4:1-2

This communal lifestyle helps to build resilience and preparedness for the trials that lie ahead.

"But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these. For among them are those who enter into households and captivate weak women weighed down with sins, led on by various impulses, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth." 2 Timothy 3:1-6
