WHAT IS SALT?
In 2016 Parker and Jessi Green started dreaming of a church with unlimited growth potential. What if you could put a church in every home, apartment, park or coffee shop? During a 21-day fast the Greens continued to see visions of people being baptized in droves on the beaches of Southern California.
Founded in 2017 in Huntington Beach, California by Parker and Jessi Green. Salt Churches began with a small group of people desiring to follow Jesus and be filled with the Holy Spirit. A group of 10 people gathered in the Greens home over dinner and wrestled with what it means to live like Jesus. As the church gathered we discovered the power of following a Jesus that is actually alive.
Believers are meant to have callouses on their hands and discover what Gods plan and purpose is for their lives. Salt is passionate about moving people out of rows and into circles of believers that are then equipped and activated to expand the Kingdom in every aspect of their life. There must be more to following Jesus than attending a Sunday service and then going about your daily life. We wanted to start a church that taught us to follow Jesus everyday in every single thing.
We believe there is a powerful move of God happening in America and believe that revival can only be sustained through discipleship.
We are a go+make church. We believe this revival of discipleship will spread all across the globe and that your ministry is wherever you are.
MEET THE GREENS
Parker and Jessi Green led two church campuses in New York City from 2012- 2016 with Liberty Church and have preached the Gospel internationally and are passionate about bringing Revival to America. In 2016 they moved to Huntington Beach, California to plant Salt Churches through a new micro church model that launched in January 2017.
Through Salt Churches, they have effectively made disciples that make disciples, planted churches and spread the Gospel. They passionately believe that we can see America saved and set free through the multiplication of churches.
AS A CHURCH WE ARE CALLED TO:
Reach the lost
REACH THE LOST
This is the beating heart of our Father in Heaven.
Bringing lost people home and into the family through belief, repentance, and baptism.
For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.
The mission of Jesus on earth was to restore relationship between humanity and the Father. Through the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross and His resurrection we are given a brand new life. Jesus gives us the ministry of reconciliation to continue His mission here on earth.
Belief (sharing the Gospel)- Members of Salt Churches are equipped and sent to share The Gospel on the streets, in their workplaces, and with their family and friends.
Repentance - We believe that a believer needs to turn from their old way of life and start a life of following Jesus and living life in the Kingdom.
Baptism - Baptism in water and baptism in the Holy Spirit are essential for a new believer to follow Jesus and live a brand new life in Him.
In a family, you see growth over generations. The same thing happens within a church when it comes to discipleship.
We find that taking the course Jesus did with discipleship is best. It was always clear who He was leading in discipleship. In the ministry of Jesus we see 5 clear ways of discipling others:
- The Invitation (The Call)
- Walking Together (Shared Life and Deliverance/salvation)
- Show and Tell (The Word and The Power of HS/The promise of living in the Kingdom)
- Multiplication (Disciple Making)
- Maturity (Release, graduation, leaving home, grown up)
Discipleship is a life you live, not just a course you take.
We take our everyday lives and lay it before Jesus. We are the trail guides, and Jesus is the wilderness.
Simply put, we make disciples that make disciples because Jesus tells us to.
We believe there is power when believers gather together to encourage and equip one another to follow Jesus.
The expectation for every church is to plant more churches. Why? Because if you’re reaching the lost and making disciples you’ll be planting churches.
