These five characteristics describe the type of church that we want to be.
We believe that the good news of Jesus Christ dying for broken people is not just the ABC's of Christianity, but the A to Z of Christianity, and this message informs everything that we do as a church.
We believe that the grace of the gospel is meant to be experienced and expressed together, in community with one another, so we prioritize opportunities to be together.
We believe that the gospel is a message that needs to be shared through word and deed with all people, so we seek to do that together as a church through creative service and outreach.
We believe that the gospel is not just an intangible reality, but it is a truth that is made tangible to us by God's presence mediated through ordinary, everyday stuff of life. We see this most clearly through a weekly celebration of the Lord's Supper, but also through baptism, the preached word, and experiencing God in the everyday.
We believe that the message of the gospel is not something the church has just discovered, but is a reality the church has been growing in for centuries. So we lean on the historic creeds and confessions to help us in our understanding of this ancient truth.
