Jesus March

August 17th - Starting at 9:30 AM EST

Meet at Potawatomi Park, South Bend, IN

VISION

To see the churches united in public worship of the Lord Jesus Christ and Christians working together to impact their city with praise, prayer, and proclamation.

MISSION

The National March For Jesus Team is committed to provide leadership, coordination, and training for an emerging national network of Christians who build a local relational network that mobilizes the Body of Christ.

THE PRIMARY PURPOSE

March for Jesus is a national event that unites the entire body of Christ in cities across the nation for one purpose: to worship Jesus. He deserves to receive extravagant praise in full public view as a living testimony from a living church to a living God. Lavishing love on Jesus is our agenda. The March creates an atmosphere for evangelism, prayer efforts, and reconciliation, because Jesus is the primary focus.

PRAISE

The Lord Jesus deserves extravagant praise. He is worthy of not only our individual adoration, but also parades of praise, which fill our city streets. The March for Jesus is exactly that, a march for Jesus. On the day of the March, we will leave our denominational differences behind to come together to lavish all our praise upon Jesus.

PRAYER

Each March concludes with a Prayer Rally, where believers join together to intercede for our cities and for the unreached peoples of the world. As we march on the streets and feel God's compassion for our cities, prayer is the most natural and most effective response to the needs we see.

PROCLAMATION

Not only are we to praise God - we also are to be proclaimers of His truth. By our presence on the streets, we bless the city with the good news that Jesus has risen. God's truth is proclaimed in a lively way - believers march with colorful banners and balloons, waving flags and wearing smiles.

UNITY

Believers of all ages, races, denominations, and affiliations come together to lift up their highest common denominator: Jesus. Each group brings its distinct personality to the March. There is room for everyone in the family of faith, and the March is a celebration of our Lord by the whole family.

DENOMINATIONAL RECONCILIATION

Walls of suspicion, division, and indifference are sometimes erected between different fellowships in a city. March for Jesus allows an opportunity for these fellowships to be reconciled as the entire body of Christ in a city gathers. Jesus said that the world would know that we are His disciples by our love for one another. The March gives us a chance to show this love as we leave secondary differences behind us and come together to worship Jesus.

RACIAL RECONCILIATION

Everyday, headlines tell of the racial conflicts and tensions in our cities. During the March, forgiveness is offered and received in powerful, public ways. Such displays vividly demonstrate that we can live in peace with each other, only by the power of the Prince of Peace.

REPENTANCE

By repenting from past and present sins, we experience a new sense of compassion and humility. These public confessions break curses over our cities and release God's blessings. We become obedient to 2 Chronicles 7:14: "If My people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and tum from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land."

HUMILITY

Jesus rode to town on Palm Sunday on a gentle donkey. We can give him the same kind of vehicle by marching with humility. Our praise is celebrative and extravagant but never brash or demanding. The world marches to demand its rights above all else and to grab attention with its "in-your-face" tactics, but we are marching for Jesus and with His humility.

PREPARATION FOR PERSONAL EVANGELISM

The March creates a climate in which "pre-believers" can be drawn to Jesus. As we publicly lift up Jesus, He draws men and women to Himself. The March also presents the church to the world as a vital and relevant force. By boldly declaring our faith in such a positive way, shame is broken, and Christians are stirred to be more than silent witness.
