Why We Do It

Our Mission

To help people become fully devoted followers of Christ.

Our Vision

Each one reach one and teach one.

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.
