Sunday Worship Gatherings
The church is not a brick-and-mortar building or a meeting, it's a community of the ransomed and redeemed people of God.
Having been transferred from the domain of darkness to the kingdom of God's beloved Son (Col. 1:13), we gather together regularly to maximize our delight in God by expressing our joy out loud and sharing our joy with each other.
When we gather on Sunday mornings, we come together to encounter the active power and presence of God, who has spoken to us by his word and revealed himself to us in the person and work of Jesus Christ.
The aim of our worship gatherings is to glorify God and to build one another up. We do that by singing, praying, exercising spiritual gifts, participating in the Lord's Supper, and receiving the preached word of God.
The gospel of Jesus Christ saves, redeems, and transforms people. When gospel-people do life together, gospel-communities are formed. And gospel-communities impact the city by engaging in the gospel-mission to make more disciples.
Missional communities are made up of people who share their lives together—from homes and hobbies to meals and mowers. In these communities, the internal transformation of the gospel becomes visible as we practice hospitality, bear each other’s burdens, serve our neighbors, and grow in faith together.
As we believe and live out the gospel in community, we begin to plan and pray and partner together so that people in our neighborhoods and relational networks can hear and experience the gospel.
We are disciples, living on mission together to make more disciples.
To learn more about Missional Communities or to join one, let us know more about yourself and we'll help you find a gospel community to live with on mission.
Deep growth happens in huddles, groups of 2-4 people of the same gender who meet regularly to practice one-another care and discipleship through a few simple, intentional habits.
Hear and Obey
Since God communicates himself to us and reveals Jesus to us through Scripture, Huddles are built around the word. Members read and study God’s word together in order to understand it, trust it, and live it.
Repent and Believe
Believing Jesus is not merely the starting point, it is the way we live all of life. We battle remaining sin and we grow in holiness by helping each other apply the gospel to every area of life. Turning from unbelief and idolatry, Huddle members point each other toward renewed faith in Christ.
Plan and Pray
Because we’re on mission together, we pray for the people God has brought into our lives and make intentional plans to engage with them for the sake of the gospel.
We believe in faithfully and joyfully giving our first and best back to God.
"For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you by his poverty might become rich."
- 2 Corinthians 8:9
