God is on a mission to rescue people, renew creation, and re-establish his good and beautiful reign in the midst of darkness, evil, hate, and pain. We want to be a church that joins God's rescue mission right here and around the world.
We love The Message translation of John’s Gospel when he speaks of Jesus, the ultimate Word of God, becoming human:
“The Word became flesh and blood, and moved into the neighborhood.” (John 1:14)
We want to follow Jesus’ lead as we live into our name — to be a church in the neighborhood, for the neighborhood, and to reflect the neighborhood in all of its diversity.
We want to discern how God is on mission and how he’s calling us to declare and demonstrate his kingdom reign. Sometimes that happens in the simple, everyday way of being good neighbors. Other times that looks like meeting physical needs like we do at our Neighborhood Clothes Closet (see below). Each week we gather and scatter in worship, prayer, and fellowship to be formed for this mission.
