We began as a group of friends who wanted to make a difference.
At different points in our lives we had each discovered that our deepest needs and longings couldn't ever be truly fulfilled by anything temporary - things, experiences, or even relationships.
That itch you feel when you're alone and quiet and thinking about life, that hunger for purpose and identity is evidence that, deep down, you know that anything with an expiry date will never be enough. You know that there must be something bigger than you, something more to live for.
To find true fulfilment and identity we need to be in relationship with the person who designed us - intentionally, lovingly and purposefully.
We need to know God.
But there is a problem, one that I cannot ignore; God is perfect and I am not. At the end of my life, I’m going to stand before this perfect God and try to be acceptable to Him after the life that I’ve lived, or through the life that someone else has lived for me. Someone who chose me, gave His perfection to me, took my mess from me, died because of it instead of me, and conquered death forever for me.
This person who can transform a grey, self-centred, hopeless existence into one which bursts with rich meaning, identity, purpose and colour.
It is why we love Him.
It is why we want to know and follow Him. It is why we want you to know Him too. Because He has given us the best thing He ever could - Himself.
You were made to be connected to Him.
Knowing Him changes everything.
He doesn’t just offer secret tips for you to live a more fulfilling life. He doesn’t offer to improve your circumstances or make you more efficient at achieving your own ends. He changes your ends. He changes what you’re about. He changes your purpose.
Our blog is filled with articles exploring the countless ways in which this new purpose impacts your life. We don't have all the answers, but it's a good place to start.
Our purpose is to be a voice.
Something More exists to share these truths with the world. To help people understand them, and to inspire and equip others to share them. We're growing a community that is defined by its desire to know God more intimately and make Him known more openly.
If you are someone who believes that hope is found in Jesus, you have a choice to make every day. You can quietly keep everything you know about Him to yourself, or you can stand and you can speak. You can have a voice filled with hope, meaning and truth. Truth that has the power to transform the lives of the people around you.
Live distinctively. Speak boldly.
Our community is challenging the status quo.
Stand with us and say - We believe in more.
