We are a group of people who find real life in Jesus Christ, celebrate that life in community, and share the life with everyone around us.
Our mission is not simply to plant a church, but to launch a multiplication movement in the NW Kalamazoo area. To accomplish this, we seek to become a diverse & committed community of disciples that celebrates, shares and spreads the good news of our life in Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit for the glory of God. We will disciple one another and we will disciple our world—engaging our faith, enjoying our life in Christ and encouraging our friends and neighbors to become disciples who make disciples
We long to be a community that brings glory to God, follows the way of Jesus, and flows in the power of the Holy Spirit. We will experience fruitful results by pursuing faithful living. We will grow and multiply in proportion to the quantity and quality of the discipling relationships we make in our lives. The community that God gathers in this way will reflect the communities we live in—with all of their diversities and potential. Imagine a church that reflects the world around us! Our community will value belonging to Christ and belonging to one another; we will celebrate together in worship and fellowship; we will actively pursue transformation in our own lives and encourage the work of the Holy Spirit in one another; we will be intentional, focused and sacrificial in our daily discipleship; and we will be missional and kingdom-oriented in our life and work in the world. Our love and attention will continually be directed upwardly toward God, inwardly toward one another and outwardly toward our communities.
