To bring glory to God by leading people to center their lives on Jesus.
We believe this is what God want’s the most.
In all things we depend on God to work out his plan in and through us for his glory by devoting significant time to prayer. (Proverbs 3:5-6; Philippians 4:6; Ephesians 6:18-20)
We offer every aspect of our lives – the good and the bad – to a loving and holy God, knowing that God knows all already, and that there is, therefore, no reason to hide or fake who we really are. (Romans 12:1; Matthew 22:37; 1 John 2:3-6)
We want all people to know of the love God show in Christ, and we believe that showing love to others in practical ways, in tandem with declaring the gospel, is the best way for others to come to faith in Christ. (Luke 5:30-32; Matthew 25:34-40)
We think every believer is called to be purposefully and personally making disciples, and we think this works out to the multiplication of our Groups and our Gatherings . (Matthew 28:19-20; 2 Timothy 2:2)
Equipping every believer as a missionary
Every believer is called to share the gospel with those in circle of influence in a way that is understandable and meaningful within their culture. (Ephesians 4:11-13; Acts 1:8; Acts 17:16-31)
Small Group Communities
God intends for believers to grow in the context of close, personal relationships. Smaller Groups provide an environment of growth that is safe, secure, and supportive. (Acts 2:42-47; Romans 12:10; Galatians 5:13)
The way that Jesus modeled leadership is through service and having a servant heart. Those that lead should model this attitude and inspire others to serve. (Mark 10:42-45; 1 Timothy 3:1-7; John 13:14-17)
