Our Mission and Values

Our Mission

We are a multigenerational family inviting all people into the life-giving way of Jesus.

Our Values

BEING WITH GOD > DOING FOR GOD

We are deeply rooted in knowing that everything we do must be fueled by prayer and communion with God; we do for God out of being with God. Our church understands that doing for God without cultivating life with God will make us as spiritually lifeless as a tree without roots. Therefore, we refuse mere religious activity and instead pursue a lasting gospel impact that’s only possible through ongoing communion with Jesus and the empowering presence of God the Spirit.

BETTER TOGETHER

In a cultural environment that idolizes the individual, we pursue healthy, balanced, and authentic relationships with other apprentices of Jesus. We embrace the reality that relationships in the church are the primary environment in which we learn to follow Jesus as well as the primary vehicle by which we are formed into God’s image. Knowing that living in isolation will stunt our spiritual growth and hinder the advance of the gospel, we chase life together in community.

GOSPEL WITNESS IN EVERY AREA OF LIFE

We are not content with the cultural perception of Christianity, and we are deeply dissatisfied with the ways in which followers of Jesus have rightly earned a negative reputation in the public square. So, through the non-stop presence of thoughtful and intentional gospel neighboring, we are re-writing the Christian stereotypes that exist among our friends, neighbors, coworkers, and classmates, and at every opportunity we are inviting them into the life-giving way of Jesus.

KINGDOM LEGACY THROUGH ORDINARY OBEDIENCE

We live courageously, knowing that God’s rescuing plans move forward in our world through ordinary people doing ordinary things. We are driven to daily obedience by the belief that no action is too small to produce life-changing and eternity-altering fruit when it is empowered by God the Spirit. As a result, we live expectantly in the mundane, and we embrace the reality that our spiritual legacy is found in the accumulation of our smallest decisions.
