The mountains in the logo symbolize the significance and the bedrock of Spirit-led revelation of truth, upon which the Church would be built. There are three overlapping peaks to represent the mystery of the Holy Trinity (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit), and the transformative truth available to us in Simon Peter’s revelation of Jesus Christ and the perseverance of our faith.
The breaks in the logo represent humanity’s brokenness and need for restoration. Simon Peter’s repeated denial of Jesus and his bitter conviction that followed demonstrated how quick we are to fall (Luke 22:54-62), and later illustrates God’s restorative grace as Jesus covers each of the three denials with an opportunity for Peter to be redeemed by declaring his love for Jesus (John 21:15-19)
The use of lower case lettering in ‘cephas’ is intended to represent the humility that’s ultimately represented by Peter’s willingness to die on a cross hanging upside down due to his betrayal of Jesus. He requested this treatment because he considered himself unworthy to die in the same manner as Christ.
“From Here to There.”
Our Cephas motto “From here to there” is drawn from Matthew 17:20, where Jesus told his disciples “Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” At Cephas, we seek to apply this same faith in order to glorify God and to help our partners, investors and employees move “from here to there.”
