Mission, Vision & DNA

Our Mission

To help unchurched people become fully devoted followers of Christ.

Our DNA

Here’s a little bit about who we are and what we stand for as a church:

1. We are a Jesus-first church.
We give up things we love for the One we love even more.

2. We are a Great Commission Church.
His last command is our first concern. We will do anything short of sin to reach people for Christ.

3. We are a community church.
The church is not a building we come to; it’s a family we belong to. We value knowing and being known, loving and being loved, serving and being served, celebrating and being celebrated.

4. We are a Next Steps Church.
We are continually taking steps forward in our personal spiritual growth.

5. We are The Church Next Door.
We want to be a great neighbor to the people, institutions, and agencies of our community.

6. We are a multi-background church.
The church in heaven is multi-ethnic, multi-generational, and from multiple Christian faith traditions. We major in biblical essentials and put aside non-essentials for the sake of Christ’s cause.

7. We are a Kingdom-minded church.
We are spiritual contributors and not spiritual consumers. The church does not exist for us. We are the church, and we exist for the world.

Brian joined the military at age 18, desiring to serve his country after the 9/11 attacks. During his deployment, he saw things he never thought he would see—and then lost a friend close enough to call his brother. Already skeptical of the Catholic church, he decided that God was not real and struggled to figure out what was still missing in his life. “I didn’t have happiness. I didn’t have fulfillment,” Brian says. He turned …
