We are a church team in Aurora, Colorado.  It is our hope and prayer to reach the almost 93% of people that do not attend a church in this area through the people that make up this church team.  We pray that you would look into being a part of Elevation and become involved here at Elevation Christian Church.

Mission:

“Engage people so they experience life change in Jesus.”

Vision:

“Develop people on the inside so we can prioritize for the people on the outside.”

Process: 

  • Engage people with experiences that lead to life change.
  • Empower people to serve with passion & focus.
  • Encourage people through the mess of community.
  • Equip people to lead and multiply.

Code:

  • We will reach people that no one is reaching by doing what no one else is doing. (Creativity)
  • We will be known for what we are for not for what we are against. (Positive)
  • We will seek what can be not what was. (Live in the Future)
  • We will accept people where they are and care for them to where they can be. (Radical Grace)
  • We will laugh and have fun. (Enjoy the people you are with)
  • We will lead with insane generosity. (Can’t out give God.)
  • We will be players on the field and not fans in the stands. (Contributors not Consumers)
  • We will be go for broke and break the bank risk takers. (Audacious Faith)

    You stated that James Holmes, the batman killer, attended your church. I know you probably mean well, but I think it might be a bad idea to teach the youth about Christ through constant analogies to fighting, being a psycho, wrestling, etc. Young males can be especially impressionable and are surging with testosterone, so they may misinterpret your analogies. Jesus generally spoke about treating people with kindness and acting in a peaceful manner rather than about fighting and battle. Many young men will not distinguish between spiritual battle and actual battle, at least at the subconscious level. Worry less about number of conversions and more about the quality of the message, which I think is undermined by encouraging people to get “jacked up” or ready for “battle” against “enemies.” How about focusing on getting people “motivated” to “help” those who are “in need.” That might get less converts, but might produce better fruit.

    I may have been a little harsh in my prior message. It’s not your fault James Holmes did this, and I now read that you are not certain he was in your church but just think he attended. Once again, I’m sorry that I came off a bit harsh in my prior posting. Only James Holmes is to blame. I still stand by my statement though that teaching about Christ using analogies to battle or aggression might not be the best approach for young males, however. I appreciate any help you will give to the grieving families. Just preach kindness. I repent for my own unkindness towards you.

    Look what your message has done. You should get real jobs and inspire people by example to live decent lives instead of attacking normal people. If there was a hell you’d be in there with one of the most famous of last year’s christians: Hitler.

  6. Not sure what you mean by this comment. But I am praying that we will continue to share the grace and mercy of Jesus to all that come.

    I’m going to be straight up and honest. God shows his love through millions of different outlets and skills that people have. INCLUDING contact sports. If you don’t like the way he teaches God’s love and you feel it’s not for you then it isn’t then there are other speakers and outlets for you to find Jesus in a way you can relate. your opinions are meaningless if there is no Truth at the center of it. Just don’t be an Armchair Quarterback. I’ll be praying for all of you. Keep climbing Scott. I’m the girl who asked about fearing God by the by!
