God’s gift of forgiveness of sin and newness of life in Jesus Christ is freely and abundantly given to us, transforming our relationships with . . .
God. Even though we do not deserve it, God has adopted us as His children. We rest as we trust that God has fully reconciled us to Himself. Through faith we are being transformed by His Spirit who dwells in us as we learn to depend on Him instead of ourselves.
People. Seeing ourselves as forgiven sinners, our hearts are softened toward others, even our enemies. By the Spirit, we are moved to love those around us, especially the bruised, broken and struggling, and forgive those who hurt us.
The World. We believe the Kingdom of God is unfolding in our time and place in ways that touch every aspect of our lives, and we eagerly await the renewal of all things in Christ.
Living life together under God’s Word and around God’s table, we embrace our common identity in Christ and are moved to . . .

Enjoy this place by worshipping and spending time in it, knowing and loving its people.
Serve this place by seeking its welfare through justice and mercy. We aspire to know and care for the poor and disenfranchised, and to see our city flourish.
