Why do we do what we do?
We have a heart for the world to change for the positive. To see the world better because we existed. We believe relationships are the key. We believe they can be healthy, families can be strengthened, neighborhoods can thrive, and cities can resonate peace when relationships are full of the love of Jesus. We believe this because we have experienced it personally. We have experienced the fierce love of Jesus and His power to tranform. And the more we follow Jesus, the more transformation we see in all these areas. We are addicted to seeing lives change from the power of Jesus love and we want others to experience it too.
What do we do?
We consider Epikos an expression of Jesus’ movement on earth so we Gather, Go, Serve, and Restore. Here is a short description of each and how to become fully engaged.
We gather each weekend as a large family to express God’s love, welcome newcomers, celebrate the good, encourage each other, and experience all Jesus had in mind for a healthy church. We encourage you to check out our weekend gathering. Get more info here.
We gather each weekend like Jesus did, but we also meet together in small groups called Go Communities(GoCo’s). These are groups of people that welcome newcomers and grow deeper in relationship with each other and God. They each have their own vision for how to share the love of Jesus in their local area. We see this as vital to living a life like Jesus, who lived in close community with his disciples. Check out at Go Community meeting this week.
Each week at our gatherings, over thirty people come together and use a variety of talents to serve the Epikos family. Serving opportunities abound in Epic Kids, Cafe, Tech, Greeter Team, Worship Band, and more. Activate your talents today in your preferred team.
As followers of Jesus, we are excited to use our time, talents, and resources to share His love to those who need an extra boost. Our hearts are for the city of Vancouver, where we live, and so we are dedicated to compassion here. Discover how you can get involved.
We are also continually feel called to be Jesus’ hands and feet in a remote town in Uganda called Ntandi. We have over 60 orphans there and two schools that we support, teach, improve, and love on multiple times a year when our teams visit. Join the team transforming lives in Uganda.
What’s an “Epikos?”
Epikos is Greek for word, story, or poem. It’s the origin of the word epic. We truly believe there is a really good story that, if we choose to be a part of it, makes an eternal difference. That’s why we are passionate about diving into God’s story. That’s why we listen to your story and connect you with others on this journey. At Epikos, we’re on a high-energy, life-transforming adventure that is destined for a happy ending.
What do you believe?
We believe everyone’s story matters to God and He is actively working to make it come alive. Learning how he’s at work is crucial to seeing our story come fully alive. For more questions about what we believe, follow this link.
