We understand that attending a new church can be a very uncomfortable thing, especially when you don't know who they are or what they stand for.
To understand us, it helps to know that our true passion is radical life change, through Jesus, for everyone we meet. We recognize that a lot of us have experienced religious tradition that seems to actually push us farther away from our relationship with God. So, we strive to keep an open mind for better ways to get back to original intent for our relationship with God and each other.
We hope you can take some comfort knowing that everything we try to do boils down to getting people to Jesus. Not just for a one time event, but for a continuous thriving relationship. Our goal is to create an environment where all feel like instant family and can have a genuine encounter with God. This is because we fully recognize that God is the one who changes lives...not us.
To love and lead others into an ever-flourishing relationship with Jesus Christ.
Being real with who I am; with God and others. David and Paul exemplify both sides of this coin perfectly. David with God in Psalm 51 and Paul with others in Philippians 3. Authenticity is the only way true relationship will seen and felt in our church.
All teaching comes from The Word of God. For those that preach, we are charged to preach the word as 2 Timothy 4:1-2 states. For every leader, mentor, children’s church volunteer, small group leader, we focus on knowing nothing but Jesus and Him crucified (1 Corinthians 2:2-5). Everything comes from and back to Jesus.
In the simplest surrendered worship means submitted bowing. Hebrews says the tabernacle was a shadow of what Heavenly worship is. So we follow that tabernacle process both in our church services and in our lives. We enter into the gates with praise, acknowledge the sacrifice Jesus gave, wash ourselves in the word, commune with Jesus, operate in the character and power of the Holy Spirit, pray with intention for others, and expect God’s manifest presence.
Life Changing Community
Loving each other as Jesus calls us to do (1 John 4:7-21), praying for each other (James 5:13-20), walking in forgiveness (2 Corinthians 2:5-11), looking to put others before myself (Philippians 2:3-4). In short these scripture point us to small groups, vulnerability, and sacrifice for each other.
In Matthew 20:26-28 Jesus says, “…But whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be most prominent among you must be your slave—just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” This version of serve or servant means to bring aid, deliver, helper, minister, provide, serve, to serve at a table, to wait upon. This is the type of service we strive to embody.
