Love God, love people, and change the world. We believe the life and lessons of Jesus aren’t just good advice, but are Good News for us here and now. As a church, we are all about following Jesus and know there’s no end to that journey—we’re more about becoming than arriving. We are committed to becoming a multi-generational, multi-ethnic, multiplying movement of Christ followers, equipping and empowering our kids and students to not only be the church of tomorrow, but the church of today.

The cross is about how we relate to God and how knowing God changes us. We are refugees fleeing the oppressive regime of darkness, but God has come to bring us to his kingdom of light through the cross of Christ. Jesus is now our peace with God. His death is our life. His strength is perfected in our weakness. You can’t earn the cross of Christ, but you will have to pay the cost for receiving it by taking up your cross daily. Let us trust ourselves into him who judges justly. We can know that we belong to God’s eternal family, and know him as our perfect and attentive father by living under the cross of Christ, the only place of salvation, security, and safety. We can trust God for the future because of the cross of Christ. We can be a non-anxious presence to those around us because of the cross of Christ.
