We gather on Sundays
We call our time together on Sundays our gathering. Come as you are. In worship, we believe God is more concerned with the condition of a person’s heart than the pretense of a person’s appearance. Worship is a rhythm of divine revelation and human response. We follow this rhythm each week as God reveals himself through his Word and we respond with adoration, confession, appreciation, supplication, and commission.

We gather in Groups
Our Home Groups are designed to nurture intimate, Christ-centered relationships and to provide service opportunities for all involved. They are diverse groups of 8-12 people that meet bi-weekly to build relationships, to study Scripture, and to serve the community.
We point to Christ
We point to Christ in prayer, Baptism, and Holy Communion. In prayer, we assume the posture of dependence as we adore our God, confess our sin, express our gratitude, and intercede on behalf of one another and the world. Prayer points to Christ because through his person and work, he reveals God’s beauty, removes our sin, graces us with the knowledge of who wisely cares for every detail of our lives, and eternally intercedes on our behalf as we intercede on behalf of others. Prayer is an integral component of our gatherings.
In Baptism, we point to Christ by symbolizing our identification with his life, death, and resurrection in the context of his church. We practice Baptism as frequently as necessary for persons to do so.
In Holy Communion, we point to Christ by facilitating time for personal examination and reflection as we remember the death of Christ and anticipate his return. In so doing, the real spiritual presence of Christ ministers to our souls. The bread and cup are symbols of his body and blood that were broken and spilled out for our salvation. We practice Holy Communion often.
We proclaim Christ from all scripture
We believe the Bible is essentially a book about the person and work of Jesus Christ. All Scripture testifies to him and should be treasured as such. Therefore, we read, study, and reflect upon Scripture each week in an effort to explore the depths of the gospel and to identify its comprehensive claims on our lives.
We praise Christ through music and the arts.
We worship our creative Creator through creative means. Music and the arts have a unique ability to connect with the depths of a person’s soul, which makes them both dangerous and desirable. For our community, the glory of the gospel is and forever will remain our inspirational axis. In particular, music is a meaningful medium in our worship gatherings. This is why we sing songs that marry the manifold glory of the gospel with marvelous melodies.
We dress casually as we worship reverently.
Come as you are. In worship, we believe God is more concerned with the condition of a person’s heart than the pretense of a person’s appearance. Worship is a rhythm of divine revelation and human response. We follow this rhythm each week as God reveals himself through his Word and we respond with adoration, confession, appreciation, supplication, and commission.
We provide Gospel-centered childcare.
We offer Gospel-centered bible study and peer-to-peer interaction during our weekly gathering time for ages 2 months to 7 years. We believe the weight of responsibility to teach, train, disciple children falls on the parents. Therefore, we aim to come alongside parents and nurture the spiritual life of the child. We desire to equip the parents to take on the responsibility of discipleship of their child. We believe this is God’s design. Click here for detailed Childcare information.
