"Authentic Gospel, Authentic Church, Authentic Disciples"
The world is shifting at a rapid pace, more and more each year; yet, the only
hope in this world will always be the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe that encountering the Gospel is the ultimate answer to peoples' lives. So we preach the death and resurrection of Jesus, and the love of God demonstrated on the cross in the power of the Spirit. (Romans 1:16-17)
People encountered by the authentic Gospel form an authentic church. We aim to be a church that God originally intended the Church to be. We believe that such a church will turn the world upside down as we see in the book of Acts. So we strive
to devote ourselves "to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers." (Acts 2:42)
We believe that every member of the body of Christ is called to mature into the likeness of Christ and be disciples who make disciples of others. We are committed to seeing every believer find their identity and fulfill their God-given calling as Kingdom ambassadors. (Matthew 28:18-20)
"Generations United through & for the Gospel"
Our vision is to see generations united through the Gospel. In a time and day where we see so much brokenness between generations, we strongly believe that
unity among generations is essential for an authentic Gospel community.
On the foundation of generational unity, we can then be united for the cause of the Gospel. We desire to see the various cultures, ethnicities, and peoples in our city and the nations being touched by the love of God that overflows out of our community.
