To make mature disciples within biblical communities, preparing people to meet Jesus.
To be a 21st-century missionary movement, effectively reaching people of all ages and cultures.
Our leadership depends upon the Holy Spirit as the source of guidance and vision.
- Incarnational Passion
Our passion is to reach people far from God; and, therefore, our ministry must be relevant, connected, and incarnational.
All believers are called to walk together with people at different stages of spiritual growth to offer an experience of grace, encouragement, accountability, and growth in the ways of Christ.
- Every Member a Missionary
We are committed to the empowerment of every member to serve as a 21st-century missionary where they live, work, and play.
- Transformational Relationships
People are reached, discipled, taught, and trained through relationships. The community of the church organized in small groups for this purpose is the effective expression of New Testament ministry.
