The Heart of the Church
We draw the blueprint for our church community from the first disciples represented in scripture. Acts 2 speaks of a church that was devoted to God and one another through miracles, hospitality, and mission. We strive to be that church today, acting righteously and being a blessing to our city in all matters, whether alone or gathered together.
We believe that God is worthy of our full, undivided worship. God enjoys our praise as much as we enjoy praising him and so we strive to honor him in truth and sincerity as we worship in reverence.
Through spiritual practices we are able to participate in God's divine work here on earth. We devote ourselves to prayer and fasting for our city and for one another, knowing God is an enthusiastic dreamer and can do much more than we ask or imagine.
We desire to be the "few workers" of Matthew 9 in our communities- ministering, teaching, preaching, and healing with the deep compassion of Jesus. We believe in working hard with great love, carried on by faith in God's presence, leadership, love, and blessing.
