Our Mission

Grounded in Faith. Growing in Obedience. Serving in Sincerity.

We live for the dream of the napkin. We are willing to cash in our lives for a purpose that is greater than us, the God inspired vision that is scribbled on napkins.

We believe in the local church. The local church is the place of healing and hope for our community, and we have been drawn together to proclaim the fame of Christ.

We will do anything short of sin to reach people who don’t know Christ. To reach people no one is reaching, we’ll have to do things no one is doing.

We believe it was about us until we sat down. The church is about us until we find a seat at the table, and then it becomes about whom we can give our seat to. We are here to serve and not be served.

We will authentically and passionately worship. The deepest expression of our love for Christ is through worship.

We give. We choose to invest our time, treasure, and talents. We refuse to hold onto the blessings we have been given, because we have received so that we may bless others. By our giving, we demonstrate our gratitude to God.

We love kids. We structure our environments to reach all people, and believe there is no greater investment we can make than that in the life of a child connecting to Christ.

We do life together. We live life together as a community, and we challenge and support one another in the pursuit of our life with Christ in small groups.

We aspire for excellence. We desire to commit ourselves to the tasks God has called us to as a community, and to perform them with excellence, removing obstacles from individuals paths in connecting with Christ.

We ask, “who are they?” We refuse to participate in negative conversations about others in our community or the vision that God has trusted us with.
