is the grand artist and author of all life. To demonstrate love, God stepped into humanity as Jesus in order to bring restoration between God and humankind and humanity with each other.

(John 1:1-4; Romans 5:8; I John 2:1-2; John 14:15-27)
was beautifully created to know, love, and trust God. However, through our rebellion this intended purpose has been fragmented. As a result, every person exists in this corrupted version of our original beauty.

(Ephesians 2:10; Romans 6:1-4; 2 Corinthians 5:17)
is designed to be the presence of God on earth fulfilling Christ’s mission of grace. It is a community of broken people that strives to use our passions and abilities to love God and love people.
(Matthew 16:18-19; 1 Corinthians 12:12-21; Romans 12:4-8)
