OUR STORY

God is on a MISSION

He has invited us to JOIN him.

Jesus has “co-missioned” us to join him everywhere we GO in making disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything he has commanded us (e.g. to love one another the way he has loved us).*

"GOD'S MISSION HAS A CHURCH."
[Ephesians 3:7-13]

who is this jesus?

The aspect of GOD who has ALL authority in heaven and on earth

Where do we go as we join him?

We are Jesus’ witnesses in “Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth…” to our people in our homes, neighborhoods, towns, regions and networks around the globe

what is jesus' promise?

“I am with you ALWAYS, to the very end of the age,” and “you will receive my power when my Holy Spirit comes upon you.”

*Jesus' statements from Matthew 28:19-20 and Acts 1:8 (NIV)

VISION:

WE ARE A PEOPLE WHO...

FIRST AND FOREMOST: God’s great love has been expressed through the person of Jesus Christ. When we embrace Jesus we adhere to and seek to imitate his words, works and ways and his identity becomes our identity. This is the starting line for our being (who we are) and our doing (what we do).

SECONDLY: Based on Jesus’ great commandment to love God and love one another, we recognize we only know how to love because God first loved us. As God has loved us (specifically through his great gift of Jesus) we love one another by laying down our life for one another, submitting to one another in the bond of peace Jesus has ratified for us, and treating one another better than we treat ourselves.

FINALLY: Through Jesus, our heavenly Father has already redeemed our souls. By His Spirit He is calling every human to not only receive Jesus (to consent and to gain possession of Jesus) but also JOIN Him in redeeming the very world in which we exist: the people we interact with starting in our homes, and continuing through the people in our neighborhoods, work places and networks beyond.

god's values that drive us

NEXT

frontier exploration & multiplication

We value joining God on his missional frontier by discovering where he is moving in our lives, allowing him to grow us up to look like Jesus, and finishing strong at the destination he is calling us towards. This includes equipping believers to serve, investing in our future now, church planting, intentional community life and community development.

TRUTH

upholding & incarnating scripture

The Bible is our authority and we value fostering deeper love for God in relationship with him and with one another by immersing ourselves in Scripture and incarnating it in everyday life. This includes Bible study and exploration, training and equipping opportunities, and resourcing our people for deeper life in Jesus.

LISTEN

justice & reconciliation

We value responding to God's voice in our broken world by learning to hear God speaking and responding to his voice in our local, regional and global spheres of influence. This includes prioritizing our time for listening to God's voice (individually and together) and responding in faith and obedience, to see God's just-love come alive in our homes and on our streets, and being present and active in our community today.

WITNESS

gospel presence & proclamation

We value faith in Jesus Christ! We value being present with God's Spirit in our community, proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ and thus people responding by placing their faith in Jesus first as Savior & maturing continually as Lord. This includes evangelism and building relational equity with regular and new friends. This happens in our families, neighborhoods, market places, communities and beyond.

FRIEND

experiencing relationship & identity

We value being part of God's family as we experience the Spirit's sanctification, transformation, maturity, healing & redemption together in relationship and through continual spiritual parenting (disciples who make disciples). This includes caring for our fellow Christ-imitators, acts of compassion and grace, celebrating life from birth to death, through prosperity and devastation.

We are an evangelical Christian church. We are proud to be an extension of The Christian & Missionary Alliance family. Check out our Biblically-based beliefs here.

Join us at 10am on Sunday mornings! 

This is one of our many “UP” times when we gather to interact with the living God and with each other, sing songs to Him and about Him, pray and open the Bible together. Each week we encourage one another to grow in our relationship with Jesus and with one another, as well as respond to two questions: (1) What do you hear God saying? (2) What is the next step you will take for God’s words to become reality in your life and in the life of our community?

We enjoy a casual environment where everyone can come as they are, sip some coffee and worship God in Spirit and in truth. Our worship services focus on Jesus, we teach directly from the Bible and encourage all to embrace Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Each week we sing together, pray together and dive into God’s Word (Bible). 

Our worship band leads us in modern songs that intentionally focus on God, how much he loves us, how he has redeemed and forgiven us, and how he continues to restore his identity in us to look more and more like Jesus by the continual work of his Holy Spirit. 

Glad you asked! We love kids of all ages! In fact, we take a lot of time to care for our kids. Check out our KIDS page to discover more how your family can get connected and grow in your faith in Jesus together throughout the week as well as on Sunday mornings. 

On Sunday mornings we specifically take the time to care for our kids, pray for them, foster relationships and teach them about Jesus. We have teachers, classrooms, and awesome interactive lessons about Jesus for our kiddos. We believe they each will be a follower of Jesus who will impact their future community by embracing Jesus and joining God in redeeming the world in which they grow up.  

Grades Kindergarten through Middle School start in the worship service and then make their way to Pathfinders & Waymakers after our time of music.

Check out our mother’s room, Kingdom Kids (pre-schoolers), Pathfinders (grades K-3), and our NEW Waymakers (grades 4-7 COMING FALL OF ’18)!

We are the Church! The Bible starts using the term “church” after the time of Jesus. “Church” is always used to describe the group of people that believe in Jesus (trusting God that he died on the cross for our sins and that he rose from the dead for our life). The Bible says that Jesus is the leader of the Church and that the Church exists wherever people are gathered in Jesus’ name. 

No location or facility is required, though we do use a facility for our common, community space (38 E Main Street!). Biblically speaking, our facility would be called a synagogue, which is still a commonly used term in the Jewish community (our roots!).
