March for Jesus IS NOT:

  • A Protest: Protests are necessary since our message of truth often confronts the world’s values. But the specific purpose of this occasion is to positively declare who we are for, not what we are against.
  • Issues-Oriented: No matter how passionately we feel about an issue, Jesus remains center stage during the March. We exclude causes we disagree with as well as the ones we believe in.
  • Personality-Oriented: There are many men and women who are worthy of our respect, but on this day all recognition, honor and thanks go to Jesus. He is the Name above all names.

March for Jesus IS:

  • Praise: The Lord Jesus deserves extravagant praise. He is worthy of not only our individual adoration, but also parades of praise, which fill our city streets. The March for Jesus is exactly that, a march for Jesus. On the day of the March, we will leave our denominational differences behind to come together to lavish all our praise upon Jesus.
  • Prayer: Each March concludes with a Prayer Rally, where believers join together to intercede for our cities and for the unreached peoples of the world. As we march on the streets and feel God’s compassion for our cities, prayer is the most natural and most effective response to the needs we see.
  • Proclamation: Not only are we to praise God – we also are to be proclaimers of His truth. By our presence on the streets, we bless the city with the good news that Jesus has risen. God’s truth is proclaimed in a lively way – believers march with colorful banners and balloons, waving flags and wearing smiles.
  • Unity: Believers of all ages, races, denominations, and affiliations come together to lift up their highest common denominator: Jesus. Each group brings its distinct personality to the March. There is room for everyone in the family of faith, and the March is a celebration of our Lord by the whole family.
  • Denominational Reconciliation: Walls of suspicion, division, and indifference are sometimes erected between different fellowships in a city. March for Jesus allows an opportunity for these fellowships to be reconciled as the entire body of Christ in a city gathers. Jesus said that the world would know that we are His disciples by our love for one another. The March gives us a chance to show this love as we leave secondary differences behind us and come together to worship Jesus.
  • Racial Reconciliation: Everyday, headlines tell of the racial conflicts and tensions in our cities. During the March, forgiveness is offered and received in powerful, public ways. Such displays vividly demonstrate that we can live in peace with each other, only by the power of the Prince of Peace.
  • Repentance: By repenting from past and present sins, we experience a new sense of compassion and humility. These public confessions break curses over our cities and release God’s blessings. We become obedient to 2 Chronicles 7:14: “If My people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
  • Humility: Jesus rode to town on Palm Sunday on a gentle donkey. We can give him the same kind of vehicle by marching with humility. Our praise is celebrative and extravagant but never brash or demanding. The world marches to demand its rights above all else and to grab attention with its “in- your-face” tactics, but we are marching for Jesus and with His humility.
  • Preparation for Personal Evangelism: We realize that “Our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” (Ephesians 6:12). As our collective gaze remains fixed on Jesus, God can trample Satan and his strongholds under our feet.
