Relying on the Holy Spirit, we will be disciples who Love God Radically, Serve Others Compassionately, and Lead People To Jesus.
We envision being a church where broken people can experience the unconditional love of Jesus through outstanding environments… where people can grow in grace with one another through transformational connections… and where everybody participates in bringing the Kingdom of God to Liberty Township and beyond through missional engagement.
Grace and Truth
We believe the best way to love people is by sharing biblical truth while showing unconditional grace. We hold onto the tension of both because that was the way of Jesus.
We believe life is a spiritual journey of pursuing more of Jesus. Growth happens best in the context of community where we can worship, study, pray, and serve together.
We believe radical generosity is normal behavior for everybody who follows Jesus. We give in a way that only makes sense in light of God’s grace.
We believe life is best lived in authentic relationships where we can be known, loved, encouraged, and cared for by others because discipleship is a “we” experience, not “me” experience. Everybody needs somebody because nobody should walk alone.
We believe family is the foundational community. Regardless of a family’s shape, we’re all shaped by family, and so we make strengthening and resourcing families a priority.
We believe every follower of Jesus is called and equipped to be fully engaged in the mission of making disciples. To that end, we exercise our spiritual gifts, relational capital, and personal proximity to be good news to the people around us.
