We come together as imperfect people in need of God’s grace. We are saved by grace and we live by grace, receiving and sharing it. Everything good in our lives is a gift from God. All is grace.
We are all works in progress. It’s not where we are but where we are headed that matters. The goal of our spiritual journey is to become more like Jesus. When we follow Jesus everything changes.
Scripture is the foundation of all we believe. It reveals God’s story of creation, redemption, and renewal. The truth found in scripture sustains us, strengthens us, guides us, and equips us to do good.
Christ-followers shouldn’t be grumpy and hopeless; we should be full of joy. We dream about being a community of people willing to celebrate God’s gifts. Life is hard enough as it is. As much as possible we want to enjoy life, each other, and God.
We live for others, not ourselves. Jesus said the most important command is to “love God” and “love others.” We want to be a community where Jesus’s commitment to love and serve others is valued and practiced by everyone.
Our world is pretty messed up. Followers of Jesus are called to help make things right. We do this through acts of justice, helping to build God’s Kingdom here on earth as it is in heaven.
