If we are who we say we are, these will be keys of our identity
in the local community and throughout the Kingdom.
We have made our home downtown on Franklin Street, putting down roots in the cultural and historic heart of the city. By grace, we are becoming a reflection of Franklin Street: an eclectic collision of college students and homeless friends; couples and families and professionals; artists, activists and academics. Beautifully diverse. Comically chaotic. Snapshots of the Kingdom claiming new ground.
We believe that the most eloquent articulation of The Gospel is a love that gives itself away. Love is more than our name. It is our mission, the very essence of who we are and everything we do.
This is where the rejected are embraced, the outsiders are the insiders, and the forgotten are the first thought. Those who have no other place in this world find their place with us.
We believe that grace has the strength to work its way into every corner of who we are, leaving no part untouched and unchanged. We preach, expect, experience and celebrate real transformation in the real lives of real people. We are an experiment in grace.
We understand that all we have is a gift from God. In response, we will trust Him to provide for our needs as He uses us to provide for those in need. We aim to live simply, give generously, and put our money where our mission is.
We are a collective of future pioneers, commissioned to multiply disciples and transformation in the thick of culture for the cause of Jesus, by the power of the Holy Spirit. According to The Great Commission, you are not fully a disciple until you make disciples.
