We believe that God reaches out to us in unique ways. God is the savior who gave Jesus and his life, death, and resurrection to show us how to live and to love. God is the Spirit who enables us to make a difference in our world and in the lives of others.

We believe that we don’t have all the answers and that disagreement and discussion are healthy. 

 

We believe that Christian community is Christian not because it’s like-minded on every issue but because it is rooted in Jesus, who is a lot more interesting than religion has made him seem (Ephesians 2.14).

We believe that every human being is created and gifted by God; therefore, people of every race and ethnicity, sexual orientation and gender identity, age and background, ability and disability, theological and political conviction are invited to be a real part of our organization, receiving and leading its services. 

 We are inclusive and practice radical hospitality to all persons.​

Radical Hospitality

 Christ calls all of his disciples to join him as “created co-creators” in establishing and building the Kingdom of God. 

Missional Outreach

We should have fun in our programs and ministries, knowing that God loves us more than we can ever fully comprehend.

JOy

Spiritual growth is nurtured both individually and in community.

Spiritual growth

 As disciples called to servant-stewardship, we will strive to make our building, ministries, and programs environmentally responsible and sustainable.

Servant-Stewardship

Apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians 4:7, “But we have this treasure in clay jars, so that it may be made clear that this extraordinary power belongs to God and does not come from us.”

Humility

We see justice as the work of structuring society so that everyone has the opportunity to flourish.

Justice

We need to cast a new vision for how the Church may effectively ministry and proclaim the Gospel in a new and different context

grounded creativity

We believe that God has already blessed us with so much.
