About Our Family Of Churches
We live in a world of constant struggle: good vs. evil, clean vs. dirty, broken vs. whole. Rather than pretend like this tension doesn’t exist, we want to live in the place where heaven and earth meet, the place where the people of earth find themselves every day. It’s not tidy. People are wounded. But they are also generous and faithful. Inspired by the glimpses of glory, we wade through the difficulties because we have a promise in the future. This is what Jesus meant when he taught us how to pray, “on Earth as it is in Heaven.”
The Church is not a building or a weekend activity, but a people. We strive to live out the Gospel in our cities throughout the week, then gather each weekend as a collection of Missional Communities. Our family of churches is united together around shared values and discipleship to King Jesus. We want to partner with God in his relentless pursuit to put the world to rights.
Our dream for the future is not to build a single church, but a family of churches that are scattered all over the world, each church unique to its location and cultural context. The Church is not another sub-culture, but the making of a new humanity. Our prayer is that God’s will would be done in our cities as it is in Heaven.
We believe in the life, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus, and are committed to living out his teachings in the world. As a church family, we feel most closely aligned to the beliefs outlined in The Lausanne Covenant. Our blog is a place where we further explore and discuss doctrine and theology.
