Jesus Culture was started by Michael Gunn and the Antioch Initiative to create material around the cultural subjects that affect the Gospel of Jesus, Church Planting, and the Church that Jesus came to earth to create for His glory and the proclamation of His Kingdom, which in its full display, will show off God's glorious grace as He fully eradicates the injustices that plague humanity and cause some of the most heinous crimes, as well as, tribal hatred and pettiness. Our desire is to help anyone with questions regarding Jesus, the gospel, the church, etc. to be able to find some of the answers here in Jesus Culture.
