To see the redemptive power of the gospel transform our individual lives, as well as our entire culture.
Our conviction is that Jesus Christ is reconciling all things to himself (Colossians 1:19-20). This means that every part of our lives and everything in this world should be brought into contact with Christ’s restoring grace. Therefore our vision is for the transformation of the whole person and the whole of life.
To build an increasingly redemptive Christian community moving hearts and minds to believe the gospel—which is treasuring all that God is for us in Christ.
As people grow in believing the all-encompassing truth of the gospel, they begin to see life in a new way. While it may come gradually, a radical reorientation takes place. Their values and motivations change. Their view of work and education changes. The way they build friendships and interact with their family changes. Even how they think about themselves changes. In fact, there isn’t any part of a person’s life that isn’t transformed by a deeper, more genuine belief in the gospel. We are excited about being the kind of church that encourages this reorientation through the gospel in people of all ages.
Truth that is shared in the context of relationships is the normal means by which people’s belief in the gospel is strengthened.
Believing the gospel is a community project. In the context of safe, non-threatening relationships in which people are allowed to be “in process,” the truth of Scripture must confront our unbelief. We need each other to help us believe the gospel and apply it to our lives. When we’re not in relationships where our unbelief is being challenged, it is nearly impossible to experience significant spiritual growth.
