Transparency Community
Change

TransparencyWith Christ and one another.

Our relationship with Jesus should be raw and honest. He knows everything, so it’s worth telling Him everything. It is this practice of transparency with the Father that opens an intimate and tangible relationship with meaningful implications for our lives. 

We open ourselves up to others. We are called to be transparent with one another. Not to lie about anything. When we lie, we say that the person we are lying to doesn’t deserve the truth, therefore devaluing that person. So we strive to be transparent in our relationships. 

 We desire to be transparent from the church organization to it’s congregation. We adhere to be transparent with the scriptures, our pursuits, and our finances.

Community – With Christ and one another.

Being in community with Christ means we strive to be in His word, in prayer, and in remembrance of what He has done for us.

Having community with one another means we share in each others lives. We invest in each other and we lift each other up as Christ has called us to treat one another. 

Change – from Christ to us and through us.

We desire to change the world around us. But in order to do so, we must first see what needs to be changed in our own lives. We believe that Christ changes us from the inside out to draw us close to Him and to show others the change in us. (1 Timothy 1:15-17). We partner with organizations both locally and globally to help bring about positive change reflecting the glory of God.

Church. Different.

We meet in a brewery. We have no rent costs. 100% of your donation on a weekend service goes directly back into the community both globally and locally. We have strategic partners and a couple fundraising events each year that help fund our overhead account to pay for things like staffing. It’s our desire to meet the needs of the community right where the community is. Come check us out. We’re right where you are.

What Matters

Jesus is the One Thing – it’s always been about Him. He is our anchor, our rock, and our cornerstone. His blood redeemed us, his resurrection rescued us. This is all about and to Him, our Rescuer.

The Word Matters – Scripture is our guide and resource. Inside it shows the greatest love story ever told, reuniting the world to Jesus. We learn it, apply it’s teaching to our lives and share it with others.

The Gathering Matters – We gather together weekly to encourage one another, sing to our maker, and learn from His word. It’s not about the place. It’s always about the Rescuer and His people.

People Matter – We serve our butts off. Not just as door greeters and ushers during a weekend service, but to the poor and needy. To the homeless shelters and the food banks. To the orphans and the widows. To the world around us. All to make HIM known.

You Matter – Jesus told us that we should love God with all our heart, soul, and mind and love others as we love ourselves. Whoever you are, wherever you are, whatever your beliefs are, you matter, and you are loved.

Words Matter – Sticks and stones certainly can break bones, but words pierce the heart. We are called to lift one another up, hold each other accountable and seek unity. The way we use our words builds or destroys a culture.

Community Matters – Going through life alone sucks. Going through life with other people makes life suck less. God gave us each other to lean on and to learn from. God gave us groups to be a part of and share our joys and struggles with

Vulnerability Matters – When we are vulnerable with God and with each other, we can experience breakthrough and freedom. Getting closer to Jesus means getting open with ourselves.

What We Believe

About the Scriptures – We believe the entire bible is the inspired Word of God and that men were moved by the spirit of God to write the words of Scripture. Therefore, we believe the Bible is without error.

About God – We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit . We believe that Jesus Christ is the second member of the Trinity (the son of God) who became flesh to reveal God to humanity and to become the savior of the lost world.

About Humanity – We believe that all people were created in the image of God to have fellowship with Him, but became alienated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, people are incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through their own efforts.

 

 

About Salvation – We believe that the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. Therefore, God freely offers salvation to those who place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin. We believe that Jesus was resurrected after 3 days and is at the right hand of the Father.

About the Christian Life – We believe all Christians should live for Christ and not for themselves. By obedience to the Word of God and daily yielding to the Spirit of God, every believer should mature and be conformed to the image of Christ.

About the Church – We believe that the church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the head. The members of the church are those who have trusted by faith the finished work of Christ on the cross. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving him and by making Him known to the lost world.

About The Holy Spirit – We believe the Holy Spirit was given at the day of Pentecost and enters every believer through the surrender to Jesus as Lord. We believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer and guides, teaches and strengthens.
