community of Christ followers,

WHEN WE SAY THAT WE’RE A

community of Christ followers,

we mean, in part, that this is a place you can be real with your struggles and that we stir up one another to love and good works (Heb. 10:24; 2 Cor. 1:8).

Bringing Gospel Renewal

WHEN WE SAY WE ARE BRINGING

gospel renewal,

WHEN WE SAY WE ARE BRINGING

gospel renewal,

we are talking about the readiness to bring good news that comes from the gospel of peace (Eph. 6:15; Is. 52:7).

to Our City and World

WHEN WE SAY WE ARE BRINGING THIS RENEWAL

to our city and world,

WHEN WE SAY WE ARE BRINGING THIS RENEWAL

to our city and world,

we are talking about the kind of witness we see in the New Testament church, where cities were changed through the quiet, yet revolutionary lives of Christ’s followers (Acts 17; 1 Thess. 4:11).

Understanding Our Values:

  • We are Stirred by the Scripture.

    We are constantly pointing back to the Bible and its teachings for truth. We believe scripture is as bold and relevant today as it was when it was written, and we are a church that desires to be moved and challenged by what God has said and done.

  • We Struggle Well Together.

    No church is perfect because no person is perfect. We strive to be honest about the struggle of life in a broken world, as broken people. We also commit to walking through life's highs and lows together in biblical community.

  • We Serve Others.

    The Good News of the gospel leads to Good Will toward others, which ultimately results in Good Works. What God pours into us, we are called to pour into others. We try to live this out by serving each other throughout the week, serving our city in helpful and tangible ways, and serving global missions far beyond our walls.
