“We often want to earn our place in the Kingdom, but God has given us everything we need to be who He has called us to be and do what He has called us to do. 

The “therefores” in Scripture talk about what we do as disciples of Jesus, but they only come after establishing who we are in Christ and what He is “there for.” Jesus has given us His presence and is always there with us, He has given us His power and sealed us with His promise- the Holy Spirit. We often want to focus on what we need to “do” for God, but the truth is that He has already done it all! 

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,” ‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭1:3‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Chris McRae
Lead Pastor, Elder
In his high school years, Chris was set free from anger and depression after an encounter with the Holy Spirit, and a passion was stirred in him to preach the good news of Jesus Christ to the broken and the lost. Chris is passionate about people- leading people to encounter the love of the Father, the truth of Jesus Christ, and the power of the Holy Spirit. A second generation Pastor, Chris has a heart for equipping the body of Christ.
Chris is a graduate of Christ for the Nations and The King’s University. Chris first joined staff at Sojourn Church in Carrollton, Texas in 1996, and has served as Pastor of Children’s Ministry, Youth and Families. In January 2020, Chris began serving as Lead Pastor.
