Growing in a relationship with Christ is going deeper in the gospel. We believe that everything points back to the glory of God and the finished work of Jesus. That is the foundation of who we are as believers and who we are as a church. Everything that we do will be build on that foundation.
Jesus calls us to go and make disciples who, in turn, make disciples. We want to see people come to Christ, and we want to see people grow in their love for Christ (Matthew 28:19-20). We believe the primary way this happens is through relationships. The church isn’t an event, it is a group of people. That means that the weekday is just as important as the weekend. We want to put the gospel on display in the way we love one another by being in regular intentional community (John 13:34-35).
This is at the heart of who we are. We want to see people who do not have a relationship with Christ begin a relationship with Christ. Our church is committed to continually living missionally both locally and internationally. We want to bring hope to the hopeless, connect the disconnected, and love the broken.
God made ethnicities as a way to display different characteristics and attributes of who is He is. The Bible is clear that the good news of Jesus is for all people. Acts 1:8 and Matthew 28:19-20 compels us to engage with people that look different as we respond to the gospel. We want to be a church that reflects a foretaste of what’s to come where every tribe and every tongue are worshiping God together (Revelation 5:9-10, Revelation 7:9-10). A multi-ethnic church puts on display the unifying power of the gospel for the world to see (Ephesians 2).
The most effective way to reach people is by the planting of local churches. We want to be a church that reproduces itself by planting gospel-centered churches. It’s for that reason that we will judge our success by our sending capacity and not our seating capacity.
The gospel is in and of itself the greatest act of generosity that mankind has ever been offered. We believe that because God has been generous through Christ that we in turn, need to be generous with our time, talent and treasure. We don’t give because of guilt, we give as a response to Grace. God doesn’t want to get money out of your pockets, he wants to get idols out of your heart.
