A Church for this city

Who We Are



Being a part of the body of Christ is more than just attending a weekend service. Jesus never intended for us to live alone. We were created to live in relationship with Him while in community with others.   We then seek to know Jesus by just being with Jesus.


To grow as a Christian, you have to do
more than go to church, you have to be the church. Disciplines (life rhythms) are needed to worship well, effectively pray and grow in community.  This is less about religious activity and more about responding to the love of Jesus.  It is this love that leads us to become like Jesus. 



Generously giviing your life to God's work provides purpose, service to others, and glory to God. In this journey, we listen to learn, but we ultimately love others and lead them Jesus.  As we live life answering the call to follow Jesus, we grow in faith and faithfulness and do what Jesus did.
