About Us @ TheKeyAbilene

Vision Statement

Imagine a ragtag collection of surrendered and redeemed people who love God and their neighbor as themselves. They are mesmerized by the idea that this is not about them, but all about Jesus. They are consumed by His story and His heart for their city. They are sowers and history makers! Grace-givers, risk-takers, and dreamers! They link arms with anyone who tells the story of Jesus. They empower the poor, strengthen the weak, embrace the outcast, and seek the lost. They serve together, play and pray together, worship together, live life together. Their vision is to seek the Kingdom and to impact their city as they walk out God’s purpose. They are us!
