We believe that the Church is not the building, it’s the people. Rather than emphasizing what happens in our building, we want to send the church beyond our walls to cultivate life-transforming community in our neighborhoods.
Casual, Down to Earth, Neighborhood-focused, Creative
What are services like?
We strive to have authentic worship experiences where people gather to worship through song, prayer, Scripture and teaching. We preach through God's word as our ultimate authority for a God-directed life, therefore our sermons are aimed at challenging our heads and changing our hearts. Our music style would best be described as "modern acoustic." We sing a mixture of songs ranging from the newest Passion, Hillsong, or Chris Tomlin release all the way to modernized arrangements of the great hymns of our faith.
What is the community like?
One thing we try to remind ourselves is that the Church is not the building, it’s the people. Rather than emphasizing what happens in our building, we want to send the church beyond our walls to cultivate life-transforming community in our neighborhoods.
7 out of 10 Americans do not know their neighbors. And how many of those do not know Christ? Across Allen and across the globe, we want to see cities of living neighborhoods transformed one neighborhood at a time, by those who’ve traded in the American Dream to love and serve their neighbors, because we treasure life in Christ together.
Our neighborhoods are really more like strangerhoods these days, but if we’re being the church, shouldn’t they be different, even vibrant, because we live there?
Our primary "program" is what we call "Life Groups." Life Groups are a place to build biblical community with a small group of Christ-followers who live near you. With courage and time together these friendships can get beneath-the-surface and allow us to enjoy and display Jesus Christ together to our neighbors.
What if I'm not a Christian?
