Rather than a rigid set of traditions or practices, we seek to shape our life together based on the following core values, lived out at every level:

We engage one another by sharing life together and bringing our questions, insights and experiences to share with each other, even as we engage the Living God and the world He so dearly loves. Not a place to sit and watch or let everyone else do the work.


Joining God in His work of restoring all things - making a difference in the lives of individuals and the community where we’re planted, becoming conduits of God’s blessing, not just consumers seeking only personal fulfillment.


A safe place to be welcomed and accepted (faults, doubts and all) as the unique and valuable person you are, an individual made in the image of God. Not a place to put on your mask and pretend everything is fine.


Revealing the God who is Love by extending a radical hospitality and sacrificial generosity, not just being nice or tolerating each other at arm’s length.

Organic Growth

Recognizing that personal and community transformation is a holistic process resulting in multiplication at every level (disciples, groups, leaders, churches), not an institution with one-size-fits-all options for spiritual growth and service.


Telling God’s story in ways that engage a new generation of those distant and disconnected from God and His people, not afraid of the culture in which we find ourselves with its unique challenges and opportunities.
