What makes our church unique? After all, there are many churches throughout the world that share our confession of faith or that do many of the same things we are doing.
We see it as our mission to build strong disciples amid a skeptical world. All Christians should strive to be strong disciples, but we see a particular need for fostering spiritual growth, given our environment. We live in a city and in an era that is deeply skeptical about God and divine matters. We emphasize a thorough knowledge of God’s Word and of the grace of our Lord so that we will fully experience the new life he offers.
We are urban Christians. Too many Christians have retreated to the suburbs or the countryside rather than face the difficulties of the city. We, however, believe that the gospel has something powerful to say to urban people. We are proud to stand in the tradition of the Christians of the first centuries, who overwhelmingly lived in the large cities. We believe that the renewal of the church will come about from a willingness to engage the city and its hopes and its problems. It is, after all, from the cities that all things radiate out, whether good or bad.
We are a small, but growing congregation. Our emphasis is not on having a number of programs for each age and interest, but encouraging the faith-life of each person who attends.
