Our Mission

To build flourishing churches
that make disciples of Jesus Christ.

Our Core Values

  1. Jesus Shaped Identity
    We believe Jesus Christ must be at the center of our lives and making disciples of Jesus at the core of our ministry.
  2. Bibical Integrity
    We believe the Bible is the unique and authoritative Word of God, which teaches all that is necessary for faith and life. The prominence of God’s Word over our lives shapes our priorities, and the unrivaled authority of the Bible directs our actions to be in concert with Christ’s very best for our lives.
  3. Thoughtful Theology
    We believe in theological education, constant learning, and the life of the mind, and celebrate this as one of the treasures of our Reformed heritage.
  1. Accountable Community
    We believe guidance is a corporate spiritual experience. We want to connect leaders to one another in healthy relationships of accountability, synergy, and care.
  2. Egalitarian Ministry
    We believe in unleashing the ministry gifts of women, men, and every ethnic group.
  3. Missional Centrality
    We believe in living out the whole of the Great Commission – including evangelism, spiritual formation, compassion, and redemptive justice – in our communities and around the world.
  1. Focused Spirituality
    We believe in calling people to the core of what it means to be followers of Jesus – what “mere Christianity” is and does – and not fixate on the boundaries.
  2. Leadership Velocity
    We believe identifying and developing gospel-centered leaders is critical for the church, and a great leadership culture is risk-taking, innovative, and organic.
  3. Kingdom Vitality
    We believe congregations should vigorously reproduce new missional communities to expand the Kingdom of God.

We seek to be a movement, not just a denomination.

These are the foundations that propel us forward.
