We believe God is as happy as He is holy and wants us to know Him in a real way. It is when we are in His presence that life makes sense and we experience fullness of joy (Psalm 16:11). In the Bible, when the Spirit of God touched ordinary people, they were filled with great power and were able to become all that God had intended for them to be. The same is still true for us today–His power and His love set us free to be who He made us to be and to glorify Him with our lives. As a church, we want to encounter God in everything we do, and we specifically set aside time for corporate gatherings, worship and prayer where we can know and enjoy the presence of God together.
We weren’t made to follow God on our own. It is in seeking to become more like Jesus with others that we truly experience transformation. The book of Acts describes the early church as a group of people who shared life together. They were always eating together, seeking God together and giving to anyone who had need. They were family. And what happened? They experienced awe and wonder and people were added to their number daily (Acts 2:42-47). This is the kind of discipleship community Jesus modeled with His disciples and it’s what we were each made for! We call this House Church and it’s the main way we do church.
God has purposefully placed us in our schools, jobs, families and neighborhoods to make an impact in the lives of those around us. As we serve others, boldly share the good news of Jesus and generously give our lives away to others, we will see a Gospel-movement that not only transforms this city but leads to the transformation of our nation and the nations of the earth (Acts 1:8). We are committed to equipping and empowering every person to reach their sphere of influence with the love of God and sending out missionaries and church planters to neighborhoods throughout the city and nations around the world.
