LOVING & LEADING

NEW ENGLANDERS

TO THE REAL JESUS

Seven Mile Road is a family of gospel-centered churches built for New England.

 

We believe that we can do more and healthier gospel work together than apart. Our family structure enables local missional freedom and flexibility while providing health and safety through brotherhood and accountability as well as operational economies of expertise and scale. Simply put, there is real theological, relational, and financial strength in numbers.

 

Our big dream is to see a generation of churches started that fit and flourish among distinct people groups in post-Christian New England.
 

CHURCHES

COMMITS

Each Seven Mile Road church commits to our "unified life" as follows:

 

LOVE: We are fully committed personally to one another. Take a bullet committed.

 

THEOLOGY: We have a unified Statement of Faith and shared theological distinctives.

 

BYLAWS: We have unified By-Laws.
 

MONEY: We share a budget process and fund certain unified realities (back office, church planting, etc.) together.

 

MULTIPLICATION: We plant as a family, not as individual churches, and we require unanimity on approved Seven Mile Road planters/church plants.

 

HUSTLE: We are willing to invest the time, money, energy, travel, etc. to meet together frequently enough to function as a unified team.

 

GENEROSITY: We open-handedly share with human and content resources.


 

FUNCTIONS

The family exists to promote health and propel gospel advance at the local level, so our emphasis functionally is on local freedom with unified support.
