We exist to be a Jesus-centered
family on mission with him.
The word gospel literally means "good news." Before Christianity is a religion or a way of life, it is first an announcement: Jesus has paid for our sin by dying on a cross, and set us free from our sin by rising from the grave. Through this good news, God now offers us life and right relationship with Him.
Everything we do as a church is motivated by and centered around the good news of Jesus. Our Gatherings, our LifeGroups, our events, our relationships–everything begins and ends with the gospel.
In the New Testament, the primary metaphor used for the church is a family. Through Jesus, we not only have right relationship with God, but also right relationship with each other.
When God becomes our Father, we also get a lot of new brothers and sisters. In all of our relationships, we seek to interact with one another as family. We care for one another, hurt with one another, celebrate with one another, and sacrifice for one another.
Through the gospel, God has made us a family.
The Church has been given the task of inviting more and more people into their family. Through building relationships with people in our world, we seek to testify to the truthfulness of the gospel in word and deed.
Our hope is that people would see the way that we love one another as church family and be drawn to the message of the gospel as a result. In every way we can, we hope to represent Jesus in how we do life together.
We want good for our city because we are an active part of our city.
