We are a neighborhood church with an awesome imagination for what our neighborhood could be like.  We have BIG3 strategies to impact our neighborhood with Jesus' good news.  We're a sunday worship gathering - a small business - and non-profit ministry all working together for the renewal of our neighborhood.  



The neighbourhood is the place we learn and live our identity as Christ-­‐followers who love God and love our neighbours. Simply put: The Great Commandment assumes we know our neighbours. Love is not something that can be offered intermittently, from afar, or once a week. To live the Great Commandment in the neighbourhood, amongst our neighbours, requires a new priority, proximity and permanence.
— Nelson Boschman

You don’t have to believe what we believe to belong here. But we do believe things without reservation or excuse. We are a Jesus focused, Jesus following, Bible believing evangelical Christian community.
— Joe White, Pastor

 

We affirm the historically orthodox beliefs contained in the creeds, which are from the Scriptures, the authoritative Word of God.

The Apostles’ Creed | The Nicene Creed | The Lausanne Covenant | U.S. Mennonite Brethren Confession of Faith

 

We believe in God as eternal Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God created and sustains the universe. The eternal purpose of God the Father is to create a people who will bring glory to God forever. God alone is worthy of worship.

We believe that God became human in Jesus Christ. Jesus came to restore the world because humans have rejected God in disobedience. Jesus taught and modeled the way of God’s kingdom. He died on the cross, making it possible for us to accept a renewed relationship with God. He rose from the dead, broke the power of sin and death, and frees us to live in obedience to God’s will.

We believe that God the Holy Spirit invites all people to be reconciled with God and to join the global family of faith. Believers confess their faith, are baptized, and join in the celebration of the Lord’s Supper. Through the power of the Holy Spirit and guided by the Bible, members of the church seek to live as followers of Christ and invite others to experience this new life.

As Christians, we are called to turn:

  • from ignorance of God to a personal relationship with God
  • from bondage of sin and past mistakes to freedom, forgiveness, and healing
  • from individualism to interdependence with others in the local churchfrom lifestyle choices that harm us, others, and the earth to choices that nurture wholeness, healing, joy, and peace
  • from hating enemies and ignoring neighbours to showing love and justice to all
  • from loving possessions to sharing with all in need
  • from aimless existence to a mission of representing and proclaiming God’s kingdom on earth

As Christians, we look forward to the day when God will once again send Jesus to bring all things under God’s eternal rule.
