legacy: something of value left from one generation to the next, like a story, treasure, or reputation.



(1.) Jesus’ legacy is the one we live – and the one we tell. His effective act of love on the cross sets us free from a broken life of bondage. It breathes life into the walking dead and accomplishes what we can’t. This treasure isn’t secured or changed by our work or effort, but by his love and grace for us. Jesus has given us a great legacy.

(2.) Jesus’ legacy lived through us is passed on to the next generation. We live to invest this story into those coming after us, knowing that they will in turn do the same after them. The story Jesus tells and the one we echo is the most valuable legacy we have. It is the greatest story ever told.


Legacy’s mission is to lead East TN to enjoy Jesus, his people, and the city.
