Together we are a community of believers. What does that mean, the word community?  Well, we say we are a family of families.  Meaning there is the large group family and we meet on Sundays for a family renunion worship service called the "#afterparty (We believe worship on Sunday should be the expression of our worship Monday - Saturday).  We also have small groups people that meet throughout the week to make up our family of familes.   

We are a church without walls. Meaning we want to serve our greater community called our city.  We make it our mission to be like the church from the book of Acts, where they loved and served the people inside the church but also the people outside the church.  Check out how we see that happen through our church plants, community partnerships, and $5 give club.

What We Believe



Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is at the center of everything. We believe that Jesus is the only one who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life. We believe that Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised.

The Separation

We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives.

The Trinity

We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy.

The Reconciliation

We believe that in order to receive forgiveness and a fresh start with God, we must repent of our sins, believe in Jesus, and commit to His will for our lives.

The Bible 

We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative, and applicable to our everyday lives.

The Church

We believe in the power and significance of the Church and the necessity of believers to meet regularly together.

We are a community with a cause
