What started as a desire to build a church that would bring those far from God near to life in Christ has turned into a movement; people passionate about seeing God’s transformational love impact a city. That mission hasn’t changed. We’ve seen God do things that only He can do – change lives, heal marriages, restore hope and make broken hearts whole.
Every week more and more people are experiencing the life-changing power of the Gospel. We present the timeless message of Jesus Christ in a clear and fresh way through the use of preaching, worship, and creativity. And while our approach to church is anything but traditional, we believe in and maintain a conservative theological position.
