Jesus is the hope of the world, full of grace and truth, the only Name by which we are saved, and to know Him is to know life to the full. He is the best thing we have to offer, and a message is meant to be proclaimed. Therefore, we proclaim the gospel boldly and seek to show people Jesus in all that we do.  (Romans 1:16)


We believe God is brilliant, His words are true, and He reveals Himself through the Bible. And because we long to know Him more, we build our lives upon His words, seeking always to know, understand, and obey His voice above all others. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)


For us, prayer is not just a practice; it’s our posture before God. In humility, we recognize that we are dependent upon Him for our every breath. Whether speaking or listening, waiting or working, we don’t want to do anything without Him at the center of our thoughts. So we fix our hearts on Him in prayer that we might keep in step with His Spirit in all that we do. (1 Thessalonians 5:17)


As disciples of Jesus, we want to know Him, live like Him, and teach others to do the same. We hold to God’s promise that He Himself will sanctify us, using all that we encounter in this life to form in us the glorious character of Christ. (2 Corinthians 3:18)


We believe the gospel takes root in our lives as we come authentically to God and one another. We speak the truth in love. We confess our sins to one another and pray for one another. We rejoice together. We mourn together. We apologize and forgive.  We build one another up in all that we say and do. (Romans 12:9-21)

We are always looking to the next generation of disciples who might come to know Jesus and follow Him. From men and women of all ages to the little kids in our midst, we have a heart for impacting the future with the work we do now. And we are particularly passionate about planting churches in university communities so we might always be impacting the next generation of college students. (2 Timothy 2:2)


To encounter Jesus is to come alive with joy and gratitude. As people who are in awe of the generosity of God, we cannot help but give generously in turn. And having tasted the riches of His grace, it is our joy to share our time, talents, and treasure with others. (2 Corinthians 9:6-8)


Living righteously with one another and in relationship with our neighbor is not a suggestion. It is our charge. And where there are acts of injustice and systems of oppression, we are called to engage prayerfully, courageously, honorably, and with a listening ear. (Micah 6:8)


We want to be a mother church, not a mega-church. That means we plant churches that plant churches. In this way, we get to see the Kingdom of God spread to new people and places, and we continuously fan the flames of our own faith as well. (Matthew 28:18-20)
