We are an evangelical, Protestant church, committed to historic Christianity, and open to the guiding and gifts of the Holy Spirit. Our principal focus is God - as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - and knowing him personally through faith in Jesus.
However, how we meet is a bit different from many other churches. We are a cell church, which means that the essential DNA of our church is cell groups. The rhythm of our church is based on two levels of relationships: side-by-side, and face-to-face. So, our church life looks like this...
We are a Cell Church
On the second and fourth Sunday of each month, we gather all together for our Celebration Service (currently at the River Valley Center, on Sunday mornings at 10:00am).
This is when we worship together with God as our focus, side-by-side.
On the first and third (and fifth) weeks, we meet in our Connect Groups. These are groups of people gathering together, often in a home or some other setting, to "do" church: to worship in song, study God's Word, take Communion, share our lives with one another, and ask God how we can touch other lives in our community with his grace. These connect groups allow us to know one another face-to-face.
We believe that these levels of "being together" encourage balanced spiritual growth. We strive to live out our freedom in Christ and seek to be transformed by him through personal and communal growth in prayer and our understanding and integration of the teachings of the Bible.

We also believe that the love Christ taught and lived is a characteristic of his followers, we thus value authentic relationships based on love rather than self-interest. Learn more about our values.
