1517 the Non-Profit

We were founded in 2015 with the  hope and prayer that God will ignite another movement of reform in our day—a return to that great rediscovery of the Gospel during the Reformation of the 16th century. Thus, the motion of the movement is backward: back to Scripture, back to Jesus as the center and purpose of it, back to seeing God in the face of our neighbor, whoever he or she might be.

And back to 1517.

After 500 years we believe that the insights gleaned from the Reformation have a significant role to play in our movement.

The “You are forgiven!” spoken to us every Sunday in church captures the essence of this free community. The study of Scripture is a main component, and we want to encourage that (And we have an embarrassment of riches compared to 500 years ago—it’s only gotten better!), but so is education in general, and the gifts Jesus has given by promise to His family, the church—physical means by which we might commune with Him and be a part of His kingdom, the Lord’s Supper and Baptism.

These things are not listed in order of importance; they are all important. Can you imagine if the whole church was just about these things?

We can.

And we want you to join us. We’re not saying to leave your church or anything like that, but check out what we have to offer and use it to your heart’s content. We pray that God will use what we have to help you—to strengthen and edify and comfort and set you free.
