FOR THE CITY
FOR THE WORLD
"STRATEGY PROTECTS US FROM ACTIONLESS IDEALISM. OR WORSE FROM HYPOCRISY WHERE WE SAY ONE THING, BUT ACTUALLY, END UP DOING NOTHING."
We are committed to clinging to and leaning on the power and Spirit of God to accomplish the mission of God - most obvious in our commitment to pray both in our regularly scheduled Wednesday night prayer service and informal group gatherings.
INTENTIONALLY DEVELOP RELATIONSHIPS
We are committed to developing deep, meaningful, lifegiving, cross-cultural, and cross-generational relationships so that we grow in our knowledge/love of God and love for each other. We work to accomplish this primarily through our intentional community groups where we:
A.) Serve together
B.) Eat together
C.) Process life and God's Word
D.) Pray together
MOBILIZE TO BLESS THE CITY
We are committed to working towards empowering, unleashing, and partnering with our members to bless the city through acts of proclamation and demonstration (working for justice and meeting real needs).
MULTIPLY: MAKE DISCIPLES WHO MAKE DISCIPLES
We are committed to helping each member of our family to join the community of faith through baptism, by growing in their relationship with Christ, discovering their place in the body to serve each other for mutual growth in God's grace, and by becoming disciple-makers who leverage their life to make Christ known to those far from God.
CELEBRATE THE TABLE
We are committed to taking Communion together consistently as a declaration of Christ and His work on the cross being our only hope and our confidence in His return to establish His kingdom and the New Heaven and New Earth.
We are committed to developing cross-cultural competence as we grow in our understanding of those not like us. This requires listening to each other and learning how to love each other the way God intends for us to love.
We are committed to creating culturally diverse worship services that help believers and unbelievers understand the story of God, the rhythms of His grace, and to encounter the beauty and presence of Jesus in order to be transformed week after week by His truth and the Spirit's power.
DEVELOP AND EMPOWER LEADERS
We are committed to intentionally empowering diverse leadership at all levels and in every ministry of the church.
