Our Mission & Method
We believe Jesus gave the Church its mission in Matthew 28:18-20. Therefore, the mission is universal and unchanging for every local church. This mission is holistic, beginning with leading people to trust Christ initially through Gospel proclamation and then leading them to follow Christ through biblical teaching and exhortation. Our own paraphrase of the Great Commission is the mission statement for our church.
Our Mission: The Great Commission
Leading people to trust and follow Christ.
Our mission statement clarifies what the church is called to do.
Our Method: The Discipleship Pathway
Equipping people to live a life of WORSHIP, a life in COMMUNITY, and a life on MISSION.
Our discipleship pathway clarifies the method for how our church accomplishes the mission.
LIFE OF WORSHIP
Worship: Responding with all we are—mind, emotion, and will—to the revelation of God
How we equip people to live a life of worship
The Worship Gathering
Sundays, 9:30 & 11:00 a.m.
We are passionate about engaging in worship that reflects not only our community, but also the kingdom of God with all its generational and ethnic diversity. This passion leads us to sing songs that will move both the minds and hearts of all ages and ethnicities.
We also have a high view of God’s word, believing it to be our ultimate authority and sufficient to provide everything we need for life. Therefore, our preaching is text-driving and typically walks straight through books of the Bible.
Wednesdays, 6:30-7:30 p.m.
A midweek service of corporate praise and prayer where we seek to encounter the presence of God together
LIFE IN COMMUNITY
Community: Participating sacrificially in each other’s lives
How we equip people to live a life in community
Sundays, 8:15, 9:30, & 11:00 a.m.
We have Children, Students, Men’s, Women’s, Singles, Married and Multi-Generational groups available to join. Community groups are where you find meaningful Christian relationships of mutual encouragement, help and admonition. Groups meet on campus and study either a book of the Bible or the Sunday sermon. Children attend Community Groups during the same hour as their parents. Students attend Community Groups during the 9:30 hour.
6:00-7:30 p.m. (August to May)
Discipleship Groups are gender-specific groups of 3-5 that meet weekly to equip you to grow deeper in your walk with Christ. Groups meet at various times in different locations and use a Bible reading plan to guide their weekly discussions. These groups equip you to connect relationally, study God’s Word, pray for one another, and hold one another accountable.
God designed His church to possess intergenerational community (Titus 2:1-8). Generational diversity is a mark of a health church. More than simply attending together, we seek to cultivate meaningful relationships across generations.

Partnerships and Trips
We provide various opportunities throughout the year to engage the lost through local initiatives and short-term mission trips. These opportunities not only provide specific opportunities to engage missionally but also equip our people to live a life on mission every day.
