What is the BURN?
A Global Movement
The heart of the Burn 24-7 is first and foremost, the passionate pursuit for the presence of God. We gather, regardless of denominational affiliation, to cry out to God night and day for an awakening in the church, an unprecedented global harvest of souls and the transformation of entire cities. We believe the Burn 24-7 is an expression and fulfillment of the restoration of David’s Tabernacle (Amos 9:11 and Acts 15:16).
First Commandment Movement:The central focus of the Burn 24-7 is to call the church back to the purity of the first and greatest commandment to “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. (Matt 22:37, NIV).
Unity Movement:We believe that global revival is connected to the unity of the Church. Therefore, we gather across denominational lines and ethnic boundaries to pursue the presence of God for extended hours of worship and believe the oil of unity is flowing down (Psalm 133). Dividing walls are falling and true covenant love is springing up across the world. Worshippers are forgetting their titles and theological loyalties for the sake of love.
Missions Movement:The Biblical and historical model shows us that worship, prayer and encountering God’s presence is the precedent for a dramatic increase in the salvation of souls. The church of Acts encountered God for ten days in the upper room and then ignited a missionary movement to the known world (Acts 2:1-4). Jesus appointed the twelve to first of all “be with Him” before they were called to “Go into all the world” (Mark 3:16, Mark 16:15).
Prophetic Worship Movement:Our heart is to cultivate a place where musicians and worshipers have the freedom to release creative, spontaneous, prophetic songs. We believe that as we release the word of the Lord over our regions that God’s purposes will begin to accelerate. When Saul encountered the Presence of God in the company of Samuel’s school of prophetic minstrels, he was “turned into another man” (1 Samuel 10:6).
Creative Movement:Divine creativity is birthed in the presence of the Almighty Creator. Our heart is to cultivate an environment where new songs, poems, paintings and dances can be created. We believe God is releasing a fresh wave of anointed creativity from the place of His Presence that will change the world.
A Regional Furnace
The mission of BURN Hill Country is to see His Presence become the one pursuit of the Church in our region and beyond, to see great increase in unity of the Church, and allow Him to create real family between us – every heart in love with Jesus.
We want to see every heart pursuing Jesus, and every heart part of a family by spending time worshiping God and being in His Presence together. We do this by hosting extended times of worship and intercession for all believers. Through these times of focusing on Him and coming together, we see transformation in ourselves, our church bodies, our city, our region and beyond!
