About Us

Beliefs

Our Mission: As a people following Jesus, we are pursuing the life of God and tending to the shalom of others, ourselves, and the world.

Our Vision: Preparing a people for next... Commited to the same purpose, the same mission, and to each other.

Our Values:

We are a people who root ourselves in the Story of God. - We anchor ourselves in the Scriptures, recapturing and proclaiming its central message of grace, truth and resurrection.

We are a people of the Kingdom. - In a world full of individual kingdoms which compete and divide, we choose to unite around Jesus in building His Kingdom, submitting to what He wants done in our lives and in the world.

We are a people of the Spirit. - We are completely dependent on the gifts that the Spirit gives to do what we could never do on our own: to bring life where there is death.

We are a people who call out life. - We are committed to seeing, naming and calling out the life of God, which is embedded within each of us.

We are a people of grace. - We are all broken people who are desperate for the grace that not only saves us, but sustains our lives and gives us hope. We eagerly receive this grace from God and offer it

to others.
