OUR VISION

"THEN THE LORD REPLIED: 'WRITE DOWN THE VISION AND MAKE IT PLAIN ON TABLETS SO THAT A HERALD MAY RUN WITH IT." - HABAKKUK 2:2

In 2015, we began to reflect together about our church past, present, and the future. The following six Provocative Proposals make it plain. This is the church we believe God desires for us to be:

  • Worship that is dynamic, spiritual, and relevant;
  • Discipleship rooted in the Bible that leads to deep wisdom and courageous faith;
