But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

PRojects - Get Involved!

At Kenosis we strive to keep improving our facilities to benefit the children as well as create opportunity to house and care for more foster children. We cannot do this without the gracious hearts of the many kind, open handed donors that support our running projects. Thanks be to God for all the wonderful people that help grow Kenosis Community. 

Kenosis History

Kenosis Community has a rich and wonderful history that started with the prayers of two men.

The name kenosis

The term “Kenosis” comes from Phillipians 2:7. Christ “emptied” (ekenosen) himself. Verses 6 and 7 reads “Who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men”. The New Testament notes that Jesus willingly emptied himself. This is an expression of grace, love and humility – His sacrifice was not for His own advantage but for ours. It is important to note that the person of Jesus assumed the limitations of humanity so that by His sacrifice (as a perfect human), humanity could be restored to a right relationship with God (Romans 5). The concept of putting self aside in order to serve others is the key to what the Kenosis Community is all about.
