Our mission is to build a gospel-centered movement that is a catalyst for spiritual formation, community transformation, soul care and social justice. The following commitments inform everything we do as a church:

  • HOLISTIC ~ We value the integration of spiritual and emotional health.
  • DIVERSITY ~ We value racial and socioeconomic diversity.
  • URBAN FOCUS ~ We value the renewal of urban centers and development of the communities we serve.
  • JUSTICE ~ We value the worth and dignity of every human being and the use of our resources for the needs of others, especially the poor.
  • CREATIVITY ~ We value the creative arts and investment in the lives of artists and innovators.
  • SPIRIT-FILLED ~ We value the presence of the Holy Spirit for effective living.
