To be a community that is shaped by & shares Jesus together.
We preach Jesus Christ and him crucified. It's through the paradox of the cross that we discover the way to God, the truth of who He is, and the life that only He can give. We aim to embody his counter-cultural yet hope-filled way of life.
We live life together. Discipleship is a communal journey. Much of the shallowness & isolation we see today is due to the individualism that marks our culture. We listen to Scripture's command to love one another, cultivating an interwoven community—even across social differences.
We share generously. We are wowed by God's sacrificial love on the Cross for us. We're grateful for the wealth of blessings he's given us. We believe gratitude motivated generosity in heart, hospitality, service, and physical gifts to each other and those in need are the only logical response!
We join Jesus in being a redemptive presence. In Jesus, God became flesh and "moved into the neighborhood." We follow the example of Jesus & the Good Samaritan by sharing our faith with our neighbors through conversation AND by doing justice.
Sunday Worship. Join us each Sunday 10:30am-12pm at the Ruggieri Senior Center.

We affirm the centrality of the Scriptures.
We affirm there is one God in the three persons of Father, Son & Spirit—most fully revealed to us in Christ crucified & resurrected.
We affirm the necessity of being born again.
We affirm our dependence on the Holy Spirit.
We affirm that the Church consists of all who've placed their faith in Christ—regardless of accomplishment, failures, ethnicity, status, or gender.
We affirm the whole mission of the Church: evangelism, discipleship, compassion & social justice.
We affirm that Christ will return to judge and restore all things.
We affirm our freedom within the Body of Christ. Faithful believers who love God, the Scriptures & each other can sometimes disagree. We hold to the old saying: In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, charity.
