Who We Are //
Building a Community
To Reach a Community
We are a multicultural, multigenerational community of people desiring to be transformed by God. Together, we want to work for the good of our city and reach the world with the love of Jesus. Whether you’re just starting to ask questions about God, a committed follower of Christ, or somewhere in between, we are so glad you’re here.

Everything Starts

With Jesus
We want to be a community that is transformed by the love of Jesus. This starts with learning more of who Jesus is each Sunday through worship and teaching, with the Bible as the basis for everything we do.

Building a Community

Starts with You
Finding Yours

Building a Community

Starts with You Finding Yours
One of the best ways to grow and be encouraged is in community with others. Following Jesus and learning together is how we can be equipped to take the next steps in our faith.

Pursuing God’s

Multicultural
Vision

We believe the Kingdom of God is a multicultural kingdom. Through intentional multicultural and culture-specific communities, our different cultures and experiences are not just accepted, they are celebrated.
