In a world of instant communication, lived in the solitary glow of a tiny screen or drive-through window, we long for more.
+ + +
We long to connect to the sacred and transcendent, to know others and be deeply known, and to change the world in ways that only we were born to do.
We understand these longings because we have them, too. King of Kings, we transform lives through connection: connection to God, connection to each other, and connection to our world.
WE TRANSFORM LIVES
WE TRANSFORM LIVES
First, we acknowledge that we do not bring about any kind of transformation on our own; rather, it is all a work of God. When Jesus lives in us, He changes us from the inside out, forever. He places in our hearts the desire to know Him, love Him, and reach the world with His message of saving love. We are joining Him in His great work in the world, not venturing out on our own, so we look to the wisdom and power of God to start, sustain, and bring to fruition all that we do.
Second, we understand that transformation never ends. From a person just beginning their journey with God to someone who has been sharing life with God for a long time, we are all in a never-ending, always growing relationship with God and others. There is always more to learn and experience, and that excites us.
We share our lives.
We are honest and transparent about ourselves and our journey. We don’t hide or pretend. Our vulnerability is a gift that we give to others and is inspired by Jesus’ love and humility.
We take new ground.
We pray boldly, even outrageously, knowing that nothing is too big for God. We stop at nothing to reach people who don’t know Jesus and are excited to take our place on the front lines with God as He furthers His Kingdom in the world.
These are our guiding principles. This is who we are, how we live, and why we exist. This is how we join God’s mission to draw all hearts to Himself through
We stand together as one church, unified and passioate about knowing and loving God in all of life, welcoming and honoring each other, and stepping with mercy into our world. With great joy and confidence, trusting God in all we do, we transform lives. + + +
