We are not just a place where people show up to check in and check out of a service. We are a place where lifelong relationships can be formed and maintained. We try to build an atmosphere where people feel comfortable staying after the service to have a coffee, meet a new friend, and hang out with old ones.
We believe that our community is not just the people who attend our church. We’re interested in affecting the community in our geographical location too.
The way we look at it is this, God didn’t ask us to have the best lightshow, or the greatest sermon illustration. No, God called us to love one and another, to be His hands and feet. The best way we can do this is by having a strong relationship with Him.
The word authentic means “not false or copied, genuine, real.” From the Bible stories, Jesus was nothing if not genuine. He didn’t care if He was talking to a rich young ruler, or an adulterous woman who was about to be killed for her sins. He spent time with anyone who needed Him.
We will always put people first.
To be Spirit-filled means that we live lives that are infused and empowered by the Holy Spirit. Jesus did not leave us alone when He went to Heaven, He sent us the Holy Spirit to be our guide and fill our lives and hearts, so we could be His agents of change on the earth.
Being Spirit-filled is more than just speaking in tongues or having a one-time experience; to us it is a lifestyle that is open to the leading voice of God. Spirit-filled also means having boldness to share the love of Christ in deed and word with those around us.
It doesn’t matter who you are, what you look like, or what you do for a living. Everyone is welcome here!
Lots of people have the perception that you have to be perfect to go to church, or God will strike you down when you walk through the doors. This couldn’t be farther from the truth. In 1 Timothy 2 it says that God desires everyone to be saved.
Providing a non-judgmental environment is important to us. We don’t want anyone to feel uncomfortable because of something we’ve done. We want to create a space for the Holy Spirit to move in people’s lives.
