The Gospel is Good News for all. It’s where everything starts. The Gospel is the life-changing News that tells of what God has accomplished through the life and death of Jesus Christ. Through faith in Him, God gives us a new heart, a new life, and a new identity, enabling us to live with a new love. We believe this message is the only true hope for the world. Our longing is to see the world changed by the transforming power of this News.
The Gospel is the life- changing News that creates a new community, which is God’s family. In this family and by the power of His Spirit, we are striving to love God completely, ourselves correctly, and others compassionately. This new community is God’s design for reflecting and building His Kingdom, giving us a new hope in this life and in the one to come.
The Gospel is the life-changing News that reconciles all people. We believe that all of humanity is created in God’s image, to bear His image, and to reflect His glory. Therefore, diversity is not a human construct but rather a Kingdom reality. We want to intentionally pursue the diversity of our community and champion the diversity of God’s global Kingdom.
The Gospel is the life-changing News that restores what is broken. Through the Gospel, God is making all things new, both in our individual lives and in the social and cultural fabric of all of creation. Because of God’s work and His promises, we have hope in a new world. As believers we want to join God in His mission to bring renewal to every sphere of life.
It’s who we are, not just what we do. It’s not a ministry, but the ministry. It’s our lifeline, not our safety net. We want to seek God for who He is, not just what He can give. We want to seek God because we love Him, and we want to seek Him to do what only He can do. We desire to be known as a house of prayer.
Isaiah 56:7, Matthew 21:13, Mark 11:17, Acts 2:42, Acts 12:5
It’s who we are, not just what we do. We are God’s household, not a social club. To be in His family means to be in close relationship with others. A key to our family culture involves feasting together and seeing our dinner tables as a place of welcome and radical hospitality. We believe the table creates a sense of home, ushers us to listen to the stories of our neighbors and invites us to remember that a greater meal is coming. As a family, we want to join God in building up families and helping them thrive. We desire to be a family of grace where all people are known and accepted.
Acts 2:42-47, Ephesians 1:5, Revelation 19:6-9
It’s who we are, not just what we do. It’s financial and relational. It’s a “both/and,” not an “either/or.” We give because of God’s grace, not because of our guilt. We give cheerfully, generously and sacrificially to see the Kingdom advance and others prosper. Generosity is about much more than money. It means thinking critically about how we can leverage our talents, resources and relationships to help other people grow and live out their God-given potential. We desire to give much, simply because we’ve been given much.
Matthew 6:21, 23:23, Acts 4:32-37, Romans 12:1, 2 Corinthians 9:7
It’s who we are, not just what we do. It’s a way of life. It’s intentional and relational, not automatic or programmatic. We believe multiplication happens when leaders pour themselves into the lives of a few. We are convinced multiplication is not just individual, but it is also corporate, and therefore, believe in the sacrificial pursuit of sending long-term missionaries and planting new churches. Our desire is to intentionally train and multiply cross-cultural leaders. Our dream is plant 5 new churches in our first 10 years of life.
