Eleven22 started as a worship service at Beach Church in 2008.
At the time, we had an 11:00 service and needed to pick a time that would work with that service, as well as a time people would remember. So we picked 11:22.
Yep, we just randomly picked it.
But, as we know, nothing is random with our God.
Soon, people started asking about the time, so we looked up all of the 11:22′s in the Bible and in Mark it jumped off the page:
“And Jesus answered, “Have faith in God.” – Mark 11:22
Our journey has been one of faith. We are a community of broken people jealously loved by a perfect God. The one and only sovereign God, who redeems our lives from the pit and makes us whole through the blood of Jesus Christ.
Our lives point to the cross. Our church points to the cross.
Why the cross? Because this is all about Jesus. The one and only Son of God who sits at the right hand of the Most High, to whom all authority has been given. It is His death and resurrection, His victory over sin and death, His righteousness imputed to us that is the good news. The Gospel.
And it is by His work on the cross we are set free, free to have faith in God.
