Who We Are
We are gospel-centered.
Gospel means good news, but it is truly the most profound and glorious truth ever revealed. It is not advice, nor is it a system or philosophy to add to our lives. It is an exclusive truth claim, a holistic worldview, the true story of the whole world, which by its very nature must redefine and recolor everything else. It is the truth of God's mission to redeem and renew all things, centered on the historical reality of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus (1 Cor. 15:3-4). It is in Jesus - God in flesh, the promised Messiah, Savior, and rightful King over all - that the hope of salvation for individuals, societies, and all creation rests. It is in this truth that we now stand and are being saved (1 Cor. 15:1-2).
We are outward-focused.
As Jesus was sent by the Father to play the central role in God’s redemptive mission, the church has been sent by Jesus to play a part as well. We are called to be witnesses of the risen Lord Jesus, with the help of the Holy Spirit, testifying to his majesty and grace, modeling his redemptive power in every domain of life.
