ABOUT US

Values

1. Timeless Truth of the Bible

We believe the Bible is the infallible words of God, that all scripture is inspirited by God and relevant to our lives today. (2 Timothy 3:16)

2. Community Over Convenience

Life change happens in the context of intentional authentic relationships. We need each other as we grow with God.

3. Our Neighbors: Next Door, Down the Street, & Around the World

The greatest impact of the church happens Monday through Saturday when people live out the love of Jesus in their workplace, schools, and neighborhood. Beyond this, we have the responsibility to serve in and fund initiatives with regional and global impact. (Acts 1:8)

4. Big Leaps & Bold Prayers

We honor God when we take faith steps and pray for the impossible. Everyone's "big leap" is different, but each one is important. (Luke 1:37)

5. Openhandedness

We look for opportunities to give, even sacrificially, while knowing God will not be outdone in generosity towards us. The hand open to give, is open to receive. (Luke 6:38)

6. Unity over uniformity

When everyone brings their unique differences to the table, the whole community benefits. There is creativity diversity. We believe church should be the most diverse gathering in the city. (1 Corinthians 12:12)

7. Doing More With Less

An ever-changing world needs an agile and creative church. The message stays the same but the methods for delivery keep changing. We love fresh expressions, innovation, and failing forward. (Exodus 35:35)

8. Passing on the Mission of Jesus

What we don't pass on, dies with us. We must pass on our passion, knowledge, and skills to the next man up and to the next generation. This is done through modeling, teaching, and releasing people to use their gifts. (2 Timothy 2:2)

9. Life Changing Moments

The Church exists to introduce finite people to an infinitely powerful God. Everything changing in our lives and community when God shows up. (Acts 2)

10. Living It Up

Church isn't just to talk about God, but celebrating what He is doing and what He has done. Serving God isn't boring or somber. Instead, it's marked by joy.
